Meeting on 24/06/2015

Dear Fellow Toastmasters,

We had a wonderful meeting last night.  We had excellent speakers and those who took roles of Ah Counter, Timer and Grammarian did a great job.  We had a good turnout once again.  People continue to find us through friends, Facebook, Internet searches and personal invitations.

We had a special guest as Grammarian who helped us speak proper King’s English.

Roeeda did a great job as Table Topic Master and helped us to better understand the life of Audrey Hepburn.

The best Table Topic Speakers were Tom and Tom.  Tom B shared about how there is no pit so deep that we can fall into that God is not stronger still to pull us out. The other Tom talked about what makes  a woman beautiful
