THANK YOU TO ALL TOASTMASTERS AND GUESTS, that came out to attend a most delightful Division E Contest held at Saint Marks Church in Los Olivos on October 11th 2014.
I understand from my Contest Chair “Lady” Marjorie Hamon ACG, CL that we were able to feed seventy two (72) persons which was the amount we had in attendance. I am going to give an over view of what I perceived from the time I arrived at the venue (Saint Marks Church) about 3:30 PM.
Larry Bishop was already there along with Marjorie Hamon and a few other volunteers, as time went by the ranks were starting to swell, the room was taking on a different Aura. Harvest Gold Table Cloths, colorful Veggies (Peppers, Squash and Onions) and Mini Pumpkins, Vibrant Apples along with sprigs of bright colored Fall Leaves fresh from member’s yards to decorate the tables.
Next we have the Gift Basket Raffle Table which took on it’s own appeal to the “Masses” very well presented and enjoyed by all. The Food had arrived, the volunteers who were in charge of that went right to work ensuring everything was in order.
By this time the room was humming with activity as the audience waited to hear the guest speaker “Michelle Burton”, who was (visiting from Australia) to deliver her Motivational Speech for the Evaluation Contestants, to take notes in readiness for each of them to deliver their evaluation. The audience was treated to the Humorous Contest and demonstrated wonderful support for all the contestants who were eager to deliver their speeches. THE ENERGY IN THE ROOM WAS REMARKABLE.
Dinner is served!
Chicken Roulade, Feta Cheese, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Spinach, Salad and Dessert. Oh My!
Jamuna Ramnath DTM. LT Governor Marketing was able to join us for the festivities (Jamuna traveled from Simi Valley) to be with us.
The time has come to make the awards, Contest Winners, Raffle Basket Winners and Announcements.
It’s my turn now to say THANK YOU TO ALL THE WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS THAT MADE THE DIVISION E CONTEST JUST THE BEST IT COULD BE.
We all rose to the oppotunity once again. Julie Boyce ACS, CL.
Division E Governor.
