From the list of topics, members seemed to favour the following themes - 'Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm'. Three members outlined how they were impressed by these words of Winston Churchill's and found inspiration from them guiding their own lives. One of our members gave a most entertaining speech on the theme, of 'You are what you eat' - and in the course of so doing admitted of his own liking for pigs' tails! Some members talked about their experience of Tweeting - the pros and cons etc.
One member even talked about the pros and cons of ' Why I would like to live in a lighthouse'.!
So, as you see, the evening was varied, entertaining, inspiring and challenging, but above all a worthwhile way of spending an hour or two on a Monday evening.
Kathy concluded the evening by thanking everyone for their contributions including the guests for being supportive listeners and invited everyone to have some refreshments. Next week's activity would be the exciting one of extempore speaking- that's to say only five to ten minutes preparation time. So go on, surprise yourself. After all, how true is it, that you don't know what you think until you've said it? : < ))
Check us out next week again - and maybe see you there?
