We went in for quality not quantity at  our last meeting on the 19 April. Only 11 C.H. T M members and 2 guests were able to come . So many last minute apologies , from sickness, to family in need, to work problems. Everyone rallied around and with a little doubling up of duties and last minute assignments, we all enjoyed the evening and the quality of our meeting was great .

How fortunate that one of our guests was an experienced TM from Sydney , he was able to give invaluable advice to James, our Divisional representative in the International Speech Contest to be held on Sat 30 April in Sydney. Actually, all TM’s were asked for their evaluations of James’s speech ,  poor James !  Such an excellent speech it is . The very best of luck , and our thoughts from all of us go with you James.

We have such a strong Club – Fran was runner up in the semi-finals Speech Contest, 2 weeks ago in Port Macquarie, and Janet was placed in the Evaluation Contest there.

New TM’s can learn a great deal from the “elders” in TM , while the “elders” are kept on their toes by bright new thoughts and ideas from recent arrivals .

Don’t forget – if you can, come to the Speechcraft Course this coming Tues 26 April, 4.30 – 6.00 pm, in Room 2 at the Community Village.                                                                                                               The participants need an audience. Fran is the person in charge .

Next TM meeting we will be voting in our new Committee for the TM year 2016 – 2017 , as well as all our usual education and entertainment.

Be there or be square – and bring a friend.
