January 27th Meeting

It’s the Super Bowl week!! True to form, Preston Persuaders pondered over this eventful topic. The toastmaster for the meeting, CC Lisa S. recounted the not-so-nominal (WOTD) history and little known facts about the Super Bowl. Lisa talked about how the Super Bowl has evolved to become such an American cultural phenomena and how the cost of TV commercials has skyrocketed over the years. In her speech, My Experience of Being a Mom, TM Sophia O. spoke from the heart and got members tugging at their heartstrings.

TM Mike T. spoke about the life of Madiba, aka, Nelson Mandela. Mike’s “rest of the story” was a reference to the legendary radio voice, Paul Harvey. The final speech was from ACB Brian T. regarding Preston Persuader’s meeting location. Brian presented a well organized residential map of current members and solicited everyone’s thoughts on future backup meeting locations. Table topic master, TM Mark R. brilliantly carried the Super Bowl commercial aspects by inviting members and guest speakers to try their hand at selling products in the year 2150. General Evaluator TM Stephanie M. conducted the evaluation segment and ensured meeting timelines. For a consecutive week, Preston Persuaders welcomed a new member. Carolyn K. came to the meeting as a first time guest and left as the newest Preston Persuader. A hearty welcome to Carolyn!
