Different Type Of Toastmasters Meeting Today

Today was a different type of Toastmasters meeting. We had two members, Ame and Leonard, do manual speeches. I got to evaluate Leonard and I must say that he has been developing nicely. Leonard did a speech on the important of saving money while Ame did one on culture shock from the new immigrants's point of view.

We also had Gregory Smith from Hanover, Ontario as a special guest. Gregory will be representing our district at the International Speech Contest next week in California. He did both of the speeches that he will bring down to the International Toastmasters conference. Susan and former district governor John McDonald led evaluations for Gregory's speeches in a round table format. This is how evaluations are done in advanced Toastmasters clubs.

Club president Raj presented Susan with her much deserved DTM plaque near the end of the meeting.
