August 12th, 2014 Theme: Anniversary

Jim was our toastmaster today and he picked "Anniversary" as the theme for the meeting. He spoke of some special anniversaries such as everyone's birthday, and to him particularly today is the wedding anniversary with Jean, congratulations! Also Jim did research on anniversaries that have a positive significance such as Columbus finding the new land in 1492 and a negative anniversary such as 9/11 in 2001.

Alice was our only speaker. She talked about her favorite restaurant "Tao Ban Woo" in Taiwan and what she observed after many visits that made this restaurant successful. She believed that this restaurant not only has yummy food, prompt customer service, and clean environment, but also simple pricing on the menu and unique company constitution that set it apart from its competitors. 

We had a good time sharing our experience and comments on different anniversaries during the Table Topics time. We're glad to see Jerry again and have him share his 25 years of service anniversary as a fireman in Bothell. 

We had one guest Damian join us; we would like to see him return in the future. 


  1. Nice summary. I do hope that Damian returns. Kathy did a great job of leading the Table Topics. She was prepared with lots of questions, and many people got to participate.

  2. Good job, Linda! I appreciate the thoughtful and positive blog minutes you share each week. This was simple and complete.
