    = David called upon the functionaries to give their reports. Paresh informed us of our times -- everyone was within the required time. Corey gave a lively report of our use of filler words, to help us be aware of our use of them. Daphne kept track of the number of times and who managed to use the word "random". David gave his report about the meeting in general, pointing out that it was nice to have the Word of the Day on the white board opposite the podium where it was easy for speakers to see. He reminded us to keep our applause going until the speaker reaches the podium (Toastmaster tradition or protocol) and to turn off our cell phones (yes, I'll be sure to check mine next week...). Thank you David for your valuable feedback.

    = Craig thanked David and invited the guests present to share any thoughts about the meeting. All guests made positive, complimentary comments about the meeting and some voiced an interest in returning.

    = Ru adjourned the meeting at 7:47.

    = General Evaluator, David, called Anna to the podium to give her evaluation of Pablo's speech and Ru to give her evaluation of Michael's speech. Both evaluations took note of the speaker's strong points with mention of suggestions of what each speaker could work on for future speeches. Feedback on speeches is a vital component of learning, enabling us to progress in Toastmasters.

    = Pablo, our first speaker, gave an informative speech titled "Let's Save the Ocean!". It was his second speech and he did a great job informing us of the crisis the world is facing with trash polluting our oceans.

    = Michael, our second speaker, also gave his second speech titled "Just Because I'm Interested" about his deep and enduring love of everything Korean. = Yolanda led us in Table Topics. She called 7 people to the podium, members and guests, to answer thought-provoking questions, inspired by TedTalks. Everybody did a great job, often making us laugh and smile. Thank you Yolanda for a dynamic and fun Table Topics!

    = We had 18 people showed up! 14 members and 4 guests!

    = Ru called the meeting to order at 6:45 pm and introduced the TMOD, Craig, our club president. He welcomed the guests and introduced the Timer (Paresh), the Ah Counter (Corey), the Wordmaster (Daphne), who selected the word "Random" for tonight's meeting, and the General Evaluator (David) who doubled as Jokemaster. David injected some humor at the opening of our meeting by sharing a brief list of funny "Shower Thoughts".
