Our theme was “Controlling Your Stress”  led by TM  Kim Humes

Relieve stress through laughter, power naps, exercise and relaxing.

Breaker speech.

Best Table Topics speaker and Evaluator ribbons went to Deon Fortune-Canada.

Newest TM Nino Dobrovic also gave his Ice breaker.

Thanks for wonderful Ice breaker speeches!

Deon Fortune-Canada also worked hard as Wordmaster and Evaluator.

We hope our guest, Katrina will join our rank in the near future.

Congratulations to Earl White,  as he has earned his Competent Leadership

4.   Plan ahead.  Please use this time to think about how often you can give speeches and put yourself on the calendar to do so. Giving speeches and performing different roles at the meeting is how we achieve our individual and club speaking and leadership goals.

Also, don’t forget to bring your leadership book to the meeting.  Varying the roles you perform at meetings will help you earn Competent Leader credit.

Happy Speaking!
