OUR TUESDAY MEETING
This month’s Tuesday meeting theme was Pinktober in honor of the global breast cancer awareness initiative.
Thank you to Lisa Huang, our VPE, for this inspiring idea.
Lisa Huang also served as tireless Toastmaster of the evening. It was apparent that alot of reasearch had been done into the ‘pink’ theme. Lisa delighted us with anecdotes and ‘stranger than fiction’ facts about Pinktober.
