Both Tobia and Sause have been assigned evaluators who will listen to hear if the speakers have presented a well-organized and well-researched speech. Highlighting both positive and negative aspects of the speeches, the evaluators will present their findings during the second half of the meeting.
East Dummerston resident Annamarie Pluhar will emcee this meeting which also will include an off-the-cuff speaking exercise, and reports from an “ah” counter, a grammarian, a timer and a general evaluator.
The local Toastmasters club meets twice monthly on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month.
