Sunrise Toastmasters 8-22-2014 Rewind & Fast-Forward 8-29-2014

Hello Sunrise Toastmasters members,
Below is a quick rewind of our meeting held on Friday Aug 22, 2014. The meeting was held at Moses Cone Memorial Hospital, meeting room 0043 and started at 7:00 a.m.

We had a total of 13 members and one guest present at our meeting.

President Angela Ligon had everyone introduce themselves and talk about one thing that would describe their week. She then turned over the meeting  to Toastmaster for the day Robert Hickling. Robert’s word of the day was “Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerodid (ALS) also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. He talked about the ice bucket challenge and shared with us a clip from the local new channel about a colleague who worked at Cone Hospital and has this disease.

Steve Stephens  gave our first speech of the morning titled “The Dash ” from competent communication manual (project #10 Inspire your audience). Steve read the poem “The Dash” by Linda Ellis. He used the poem to give an inspiring speech about his dad’s life and legacy.

Ying Na gave our second speech of the morning titled “Good Workout At Home” from Competent Communication manual (project #9 Persuade With Power). Ying talked to us about why we should consider working out at home as opposed to a gym with very little cost. She brought in her home gym in a bag and had Dave Burr and myself (Joe Stack) demonstrate for everyone a number of different exercises that can be done using a few things from the home.
Tim did a great job leading Table topics on current events . The topics ranged from the recent shooting in Ferguson, MO to college sports to the problems in Iraq and the ebola virus.

Thanks to Alvin and Phil  for serving as evaluator and to  Dave for being general evaluator. Thanks to Angela  for serving as Timer/Grammarian.
