Join us December 20th at our Table Topics Holiday Party!

transparent_christmas_mistletoe_garland_with_pearls_png_clipartWe are having our Holiday Party Tuesday, December 20th at 12:00 PM. Please join us! There will be festive, flavorful, and fun foods and refreshments!


It will be a jolly hour of Yuletide Table Topics–no assigned speeches! A “Table Topic” speech is an impromptu speech of 45 seconds to one minute and 15 seconds. We practice “thinking on our feet” during the Table Topics portion of our meetings; and on the 20th we will get extra practice!


If you are looking to better your speaking skills, especially your extemporaneous speaking skills, this is an excellent opportunity to do so in a friendly, supportive environment. We love guests! Just show up! Please contact our VP of Membership ( ‎if you have any questions.

The Name of the Game is Improvising

Today we improvised using our emergency meeting tools: the Timer cards and gavel. Tom, distinguished Toast Master, identified our theme: Corn. And plenty of corn we had with Dave’s Humor Master role (hardy har har!).  Scott spoke on his favorite band’s lyrics (Def Leppard), using projection and a high tech setup, which was evaluated by Rick.  We also had a long session of Table Topics by Kristin based on Corn. Hilary won an ear of corn for her response to a Tough Muther Race in creamed corn.

How would you answer if surprised by these prompts…?

  1. You ate so much corn last time you couldn’t see straight but you had the most fun ever, tell us about that time.
  2. When you woke up you were wearing a large corn costume. What did you do to deserve that?
  3. Tell us how YOU make popcorn, if not you then your favorite cook.
  4. What was the last corny joke you heard and do you remember any of it?
