Fellow Tejas Toastmasters,
 
Last night, Tejas had  our first "normal" meeting of the month.  Carol Cespedes led our business meeting, and we learned that Carol had won first place for her humorous speech at the district contest on September 20th.  Mark your calendars to come and support Carol at the Division J Contest on October 18 at 10:00pm.  Congratulations, Carol!  We also learned about the Buen Samaritano Program from guest Gilca Cespedes.  Also, Tejas hopes that Russell Eskew is doing well after a brief time in the hospital.
 
Jim Guy served as the night's Toastmaster.  Katie O'Byrne led us in Table Topics, asking Erin- "What is a home to you?"; Evangalina- "What do you look for in a home?"; Summer- "What is your dream home?"' and Dillon- "What is your favorite place you have lived?"  Evangalina, who spoke about her neighbors and the Austin trees, won the best Table Topics ribbon.
 
Benny Cespedes gave a speech titled "A Thousand Points of Light" in which he encouraged the club to become active volunteers.  Margaret Cathey gave an icebreaker titled "The Leadership Path" in which she shared her history of toastmaster leadership roles.  Margaret won the Best Speech ribbon.
 
Julie Speaker gave Benny a great evaluation focusing on his speaking style and diction.  Erin Whalen evaluated Margaret and focused on the content of her speech.  Erin won the Best Evaluator Ribbon.
 
At the end of the meeting, Julie led Tejas in an induction ceremony for Dillon Pyron.  Welcome to the club, Dillon.  Also, guest Summer Sage announced that she was joining Tejas at the next meeting- we are glad to have you, Summer!
