Congratulations on another wonderful meeting.

Congratulate Andrea on being our newest member!

Our theme was “Remembering” led by TM Bert Romero

Table topics were led by Terry Bartholomew.

Kim Humes provided the Word of the Day which was PROFUSE.

Nino Dobrovic gave his second speech today on healthcare reform from a
doctor’s perspective.
Thanks Kim Humes for giving Nino’s evaluation!

Best Table Topics speaker went to Kim Humes!

Thank you Earl White for providing Timer Remarks, Andrea Clark for being the
eagle listener — we haven’t been stumped by questions in a while.

Nigel Thalakada provided Grammar/Ah Counter as well as great Opening and
Closing quotes today. Thanks Nigel for being such a devoted member. Nigel
was here on assignment from Ottawa since August and was at the club whenever
he was in town. Unfortunately for us, he will no longer be taking any
trips down here. Thanks Nigel and maybe one of us in the future will come
up and meet you up in Ottawa.

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
