For those who missed it, Pauline our Chair, chose relaxation as our theme today. She chose this theme to remind us that relaxation is just as important as celebrating the Xmas and NY’s holiday. We all took full advantage of the opportunity to relax by eating chocolate and enjoying the speeches.

Hazel spoke about the Goat run that she undertook recently, and Grace spoke about how Bank Reps make their income.

Peter, our Grammarian, challenged us to not be too relaxed with our language, and he introduced and evaluated Hazel with his superb skill and articulation. John introduced and evaluated Grace with his warmth, wit and financial acumen.

Ruth ran a smooth Table Topics session. Our most recent member Brad grew in confidence and guests, Janine and Chris, followed up with an exhibition of their natural speaking skills too. Marian’s Table Topics evaluation was very supportive and well delivered. Sue took on the GE role for the first time and filled all the role requirements well. Peter was awarded TM of the Day. Congratulations Peter! Pauline closed the meeting wishing us all the best for the Xmas and NY’s break.
