August  10, 2015 Meeting Recap

Marie Azzaria was our Presiding Officer and Grace Rachow was our Toastmaster for the evening.
As bizarre as it sounds, the theme for the evening was “Happy Birthday, Ron!”. Because it was Ron’s exact birth date, we all agreed to applause and cheer every time someone said that it was “Ron Guilbault’s Birthday.”

Opening words were shared by Sandra Eacret, expressing both celebration and a melancholy note of empathy (for putting Ron into this awkward position).

Remaining information forthcoming…
