Meeting Minutes July 2, 2015

Simply Speaking Minutes
Colorado Community Church
The first meeting of our new season was opened by Larry Hutcheson.  He called the meeting to order and led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.  
The toastmaster for the evening was Vennita Jenkins and she kept the meeting moving along at a good pace.
There was no Inspirator, but we were inspired by two great speeches and Table Topics.
Jean Broida gave an appropriately timed speech titled “Question Authority?”  She told us about one of her experiences questioning authority. Jean then moved swiftly into  events leading up to this country declaring its independence from England.
In the speech “The Beauty of Loss” Connie Akins asked for volunteers to talk about their loss.  She also shared a time when she had a personal loss.  Connie did explain that sometimes a loss can be a good thing.
As a special speaker David Bounds and a chicken named Kathy gave us very spirited entertainment filled with fire and brimstone.  It was reminiscent of a church tent revival.
We also received some great table topics answers from David Bounds, Darryle Brown, & Tom Marrs.  Diane Nuss was the Table Topics Master.
General Evaluator Margaret Seyer called on Sherry Thomas and Joy Davidson to evaluate the speeches.
Tom Marrs inducted 5 of the new officers for the next season.
Awards went to:
Tom Marrs for Best Table Topics
Sherry Thomas for Best Evaluator
Best Speaker was Jean Claire Broida
