It was an amazing night.
(In photo President Knowles gets some needed mentoring from Toastmaster Sharon Jenkins.)
There were the usual gotchas to the meeting to be sure. You know, the usual role changes due to work assignments, illness, etc. The chair (Moderator’s Note: Donald was the chair and is speaking about himself) missing two of the assignment changes on the agenda. Nothing really bad mind you, just less than perfect.
The room was in a jovial mood as everyone was in great spirits. There were even 3 guests on the last night of the year. The theme was All Good Things and everyone ran with it, from Table Topics , toasts, to speaker and evaluation introductions. Everyone did a great job and the evening progressed smoothly.
Michelle Gillies was totally surprised by her award, but I do think greatly pleased.
We had a few club firsts; Heather nailed her first GEV assignment and Olga did likewise for her TOM assignment. Well done ladies. Dave completed his CC, with the understanding that the paperwork will be completed in the new year post June 30. The club also had its first High Performance Leadership completion in recent memory. We had a few familiar faces missing and I do hope all is well. There are 2 functions left for the year; the executive transition process and then the final year end party.
The club is in great hands for next year and I wish everyone the best.
Have a great and safe summer and see everyone back at the lectern in September.
