The June 10th meeting of Daybreakers of Westlake got off to a terrific start with the word of the day, "eccentric." Seasoned Toastmasters as well as "newbies" showed creativity in their communicationn efforts while trying to incorporate the word of the day into their speeches.
Seasoned Toastmaster, Shu-Hwei Zimmerman delivered a reading and won "Best Speaker." Dan Yan, a new member, gave his "Ice Breaker" speech. This is always a big step for our new members as it is the first speech they give in the club. Victor Kamont gave an "eccentric" speech out of an advanced manual "The Entertaining Speaker."
Our theme was "vacations." Dick Elsley won the "Best Table Topic" ribbon. And the "Best Evaluator" ribbon went to Jim Hoagland.
