The meeting, after the mid October one was rained out,  was a real excitement.
It began with the President announcement of our jubilant Christmas Gala scheduled for Dec. 17th.
Followed by a new member’s humorous Thought of The Evening speech.
Was carried on to a veteran Table Topic Master’s witty impromptu speech session filled with laughter over hilarious speeches.
Those uplifted the mood for four remarkably upscale and inspiring Prepared Speeches by seasoned members.
We all got excited by one of them about flying to Malaysia together to attend the TM World Convention next year.
What an animated meeting it was!
