Christopher Haig was the toastmaster of the day. Kelu Zhang offered her inspiration from her memory when she was in Mililani club. Once any club member finishes CC or other manual, other members would build a human bridge which he/she would go through. At the end of the “bridge”, the club President would give him/her a pineapple to celebrate the accomplishment. Pam Roth offered an amazing joke about marriage relationship and what a couple did to count for the arguments they had in their 60 years of marriage.
William Sink was the only speaker for the meeting since the second half of the meeting is Club Officers transition and celebration. He spoke on CC Manual Speech No. 2 “Organize Your Speech”. His title is “The Top Five”. He delivered a well-organized speech with a clear structure. Hesummarized the contributions and impacts made by the top five presidents of the United States. He started with John Kennedy, the 35th U.S. President from 1961 to 1963. Kennedy asked the citizens what you can do for your country. Next Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President from 1901 to 1909. He was a war hero. Abraham Lincoln is the top 3 on William’s list. He is the 16th President from 1861 to 1865. Lincoln believed that everyone was created equal and there should be no slavery in the world. George Washington, first president of United States from 1789 to 1797 is the next. Top one is Franklin Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. He directed the United States government during most of the Great Depression and World War II. William finished his speech by stating two common elements among these top five presidents: 1) they all believe in supreme 2) they are all liberal.
