[Meeting Report ] #174 August 19
Post date: Aug 24, 2017 2:07:38 PM
Downpour, incessant thunder strokes, and Obon holiday season..... Even such a worst conceivable combination could not dampen our high spirits.
Smaller group than usual meant more chance for contribution by each attendee during the meeting.
On top, we were impressed that 3 guests managed to join us in the face of very harsh weather: 1 first time vistor and 2 Toastmasters from sister clubs.
Our post-meeting socialization party lasted till late, by which time everyone's drenched clothes were dry enough for a train ride back home.
