Pauline kicked off the meeting as Sergeant at Arms, and introduced our Toastmaster for the day, Deb. Deb introduced us to the theme for the day, wealth. Throughout the meeting, Deb enlightened us with quotes and challenges about what constitutes wealth.
It was great to welcome so many guests to the meeting…Brent F, Jerome, Brent H, Geoff and Hayley, Sophia, Phil, Jan.
Our Grammarian for the day, Brent R, brought us the word for the day ‘improvement’. It was superb to notice so many people making the effort to incorporate the word of the day into their speaking.
Brett Snow was speaker number one with his speech ‘My life with dental allergies: a tough road to travel’. It was a very informative speech with a lot of food for thought about the allergens used in dental work.
Kevin Cusack was up next letting us know all about ‘July Activities’.
“It’s a lovely month this month of July to be saying it’s a lovely month”
