New Year starts with a hat trick for Monica – 13th Jan 2016

Monica “blamed it on the Suffragettes” in her prepared speech to win her third Best Speaker title in a row – a wonderful start to the West Herts Speakers year.
Cathal Gilbert won best evaluator for his detailed and warm critique of Corinne’s apposite speech on web awareness.
Karen took the Table Topics prize with memories of the world that opened up to her when her parents – finally – agreed to get a television.
If it sounds like a dry night, it certainly wasn’t – the strong line up of speeches prompted a load of laughs.
The theme of the evening was, quite aptly for this time of year, Weather and Toastmaster Sola wove it into her links with great enthusiasm.
We were thrilled to welcome three visitors who have all promised to return – and bring their friends!
Our next meeting is at 7 for 7.30pm on 27 January at Aubrey Park Hotel. Ask for us at the friendly reception desk.
