The traditional Icebreaker mints and ribbons were awarded to two of our new members who gave their Icebreaker speeches. An Icebreaker speech is the first speech a new member gives and is a 4-6 minute speech about themselves.
Highlighting our lineup of prepared speeches was Heidi Schreiner practicing a speech for the Western Division TLI (Toastmaster Leadership Institute) that was held in Eau Claire at the end of February.
We had several members doing impromptu speaking.
First, Mary Hiss addressed the question, “What qualities would you like to inherit from your parents?”.
The next question addressed was, “What three qualities would make you a good leader?”.
Nate Otto answered, “What 3 objects would you save from Ivan’s house if there were a fire?”.
Bob Swanson was asked the question, “What would you like to be famous for?”.
Finally, our newest member Lindsay Olson went for a double header!!! She first answered, “What would you not want in a friend?” and then “What state would you like to visit?”.
