April 8, 2014 Theme: Sister Cities

 Lynne was our Toastmaster today.  She chose sister cities as the theme.  President Eisenhower started the program in 1956.  All US presidents since then have served as honorary chairs for the program.  The purpose is to promote peace and prosperity.  Currently there are 600 sister cities around the world.

Kathy was our first speaker today. Her project was from the Technical Presentation Manual.  The title of her talk was Movies…Coming Soon?  Kathy proposed that the Eastside could benefit from having a small luxury theatre that would show limited run and foreign films. She discussed the pros and cons and answered questions from members.

Roy was our second speaker.  He completed his Icebreaker.  He shared his family genealogy dating back to 450b.c.  Roy impressed all of us with his natural poise and being able to give his Icebreaker without using notes.

Our Area 54 Governor Pat Sultan joined us.  Pat promoted the upcoming Speech and Evaluation contest.  We always welcome guests.  Whether you want to participate or just observe, please join us.  We are running another membership drive with all new guests being entered into a drawing for a Starbucks card. Drawing will be held May 13th.




  1. It was another great meeting with interesting speeches.

  2. Thanks for the notes, Kate. Our speeches are getting better, and it's great to see it unfolding.

  3. Kathy's speech about luxury theaters in our area for special films and documentaries stirred a lot of interest.

    Roy seemed to love sharing his ice breaker. We loved it too.
