Table Topics was the main theme of this morning's program. The speaking exercise is used by Toastmasters at all of their meetings. The exercise helps develop impromptu speaking techniques that are of benefit to our personal and professional lives. Lee Carrol was the table topics master and he picked members at random and had them speak for one to two minutes on a variety of subjects. There was some friendly competition along the way and Shannon Seifert came in first place and Kevin Walthers came in second. Everyone had fun today!
