Fast Forward/ Rewind 6-18-21

Sunrise Toastmasters opened the meeting with a bit of house cleaning work discussing the upcoming year and new officer roles. After an always important minute of silence, concentrating on social justice and the Black Lives Movement, Summer Murphy, toastmaster for the morning, transitioned us into the meeting. Summer led us in a round of group participation where we shared what we would each like to continue to gain from Toastmasters. The speakers portion was next with speakers Savannah Murphy and Anu Parvathaneni. Savannah presented a speech titled “Weight Matters”. She included supportive visuals and research to discuss the social issues surrounding peoples weight and the impact that has on both the individual and society as a whole. Anu followed with a speech describing her journey into being a competent speaker and took the group from her as a toddler to a fearful teenager to a person with skill and confidence. Both presentations were personal, informative, and well delivered. Dave Burr hosted a delicious table topics surrounding spices and herbs. From dill, garlic, and vanilla to ginger, horseradish, and curry, the table topics had the group recalling wonderful memories and feeling hungry and happy. The evaluation team included Kelsey Long, Time Murphy, Amelya Black, Dustin Johnson, and Norris Bass. The Sunrise Toastmasters club welcomes all guests. Please join us for our next amazing meeting on June 25, 2021 via Zoom!
