”Succeeding the important business session as the starter, the Toastmaster of the Evening put the meeting in progress helped with his humorous talks. A fabulous Thought of the Evening speech by a new member right after her induction ceremony. Then came a timely Tabletop Speech session with questions of “Christmas gifts”. Three splendid Prepared speeches illuminated the meeting, which was adjourned after the President enthusiastic request to members for attending the  KF Christmas Gala set for December 17.”
