Love is in the air!

Yes, it’s Valentines Day and Boaters provided an inspirational start to the day of love.

Steve Thomas was our Toastmaster, and the theme was, of course, Valentines Day!

We had 23 people present, with 2 first time visitors, Lauren and Graham…a very warm welcome to you both.

Grammarian Hayley showed us her prowess with words as she introduced the word of the day “Facetious” …to treat serious issues with deliberately inappropriate humour. Hayley was also on the lookout throughout the meeting for umms and aahs.

Speaker 1 was Brent Ruru with his speech entitled ‘Waitangi Day 2014’. Brent has been keeping us informed throughout the past year about his family’s challenge to achieve certain items on their wish/dream/bucket list, the end date for completion (of the competition aspect of the challenge) being Waitangi Day 2014. Congratulations Brent on winning your family challenge! (and saving yourself the $10,000 that would have gone to one of the children if they had won!)
