Stan Ellis

*Highlights of meeting* Patricia gave a message of forsaking the idiosyncrasies that we may have
about others or the frustration that comes with the daunting tasks that we face in life.  Instead: Channel our
energy into our strengths and abilities and God will help us with the rest.
Denise performed an "off the cuff" speech selected by her Evaluator Stan: "How to clean like a 
Toastmaster." It was random yet humorous and she tapped into her thespian talents.  A student "Chris"
visited for the first time, volunteered to be the first TT speaker and won!!! Dheeraj challenged
us with engaging table topics comparing ideas/virtues like: "Fate versus Karma", "Destiny vs. Future",
"Diligence vs. Energy" and "Endeavor vs. Struggle".  It was very existentialistic and prompted participants to
share their personal philosophy of life, 'off the cuff' and within 2 minutes.  All speakers qualified.

Secretary: Fayola Huffman CC
