Barb was our toastmaster today. She picked "Ice" as the theme and compared winter ice, ice skating, and breaking the ice to our toastmaster term “The Ice Breaker". It is the first speech new toastmasters give in the Competent Communication Manual. We see it as a sign of accomplishment when a new member ‘breaks the ice’ by giving their “Ice Breaker.”
Sue was our first speaker. She accomplished her 1st project, “The Ice Breaker” which was to introduce herself to our club members. She shared stories of when she was 16 and made us laugh about her "adventure" of raising 36 chickens and getting a puppy with the money she earned.
