May 6,2014 Theme: The Four Gentlemen: Flower Symbolism in Chinese Culture

Linda was our Toastmaster today. She chose Chinese flower symbolism as the theme.  The Plum blossom, Orchid, Chrysanthemum and Bamboo are known as the four gentlemen.  The Plum blossom represents winter transitioning into spring. The Orchid symbolizes beauty and grace.  The Chrysanthemum represents strength and bamboo symbolizes vitality and longevity.

Kate was our only speaker today. The title of her presentation was the Importance of Mentoring. This was from the Successful Club Series. Kate explained the mentoring program in detail. The mentoring program is designed so members can learn from each other and reach their goals faster.

Many members were out sick today, but it was still a powerful meeting. Join us next week as we complete our membership drive and celebrate our eleventh anniversary. Refreshments and fun will abound.  Guests are always welcome. Please join us.
