This week Preston Persuaders held rather a fun and entertaining yet still productive and rewarding meeting.The meeting was not held at the usual place, but to add some summer thrill, was held in member, Emily's house. The meeting was a potluck event where every member brought unique food to the meeting all while swimming and "beaching it up". So was it all just fun and games or did Preston Persuaders conduct their meeting as usual? The answer is that we decided to do something a bit different! We created a sandwich event. DTM, Ed Meissner, Toastmaster of the day, created a debate set up! About six members split into two teams and planned their debate for cats v.s. dogs. While the groups planned their debate, the rest of the members did guess what? Table Topics!! With a variety of questions provided by Ed, every member had a chance to speak! After the debate took place, we had time for more! Another debate of soups v.s. salads took place while table topics yet again stole the spotlight while the debate was planned. After the second debate took place we placed importance on announcements and new business. Afterwards...we ate some more and celebrated July birthdays!! Overall, it was a fabulous evening that provided an enchanting experience of extemporaneous speaking (table topics & debates) opportunities all while enjoying nice food and friends.
