Hamil­ton Speak­ers Club met last Thursday, Oc­to­ber 5, in Fern­ie­gair Hall.

Pres­i­dent Sam Waugh handed the gavel to Tom Mc­quade, the chair for the even­ing.

Mem­bers heard that the pre­vi­ous year had been gen­er­ally suc­cess­ful, and the present ses­sion would fol­low the same for­mat. De­vel­op­ment of speak­ers de­pends on the qual­ity of eval­u­a­tions, and this should con­tinue to help ev­ery­one, es­pe­cially newer mem­bers. Rolling top­ics will be used, al­low­ing more speak­ers to par­tic­i­pate.

On the night, Rita Lit­tle ex­pressed her plea­sure that Billy Con­nolly was given the Free­dom of the City on his 75th birth­day.

Bill Mc­mul­lan re­gressed to his child­hood as he talked about at­tend­ing foot­ball games, be­ing passed over the styles and cheer­ing on his he­roes.

Scott Cal­dow set top­ics on hap­pi­ness, the rel­a­tive wealth of youth and age, Strictly Come Dancing and dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

Gen­eral critic Tom Car­son felt this was “an aus­pi­cious start”to the sea­son.

The club lets peo­ple speak in a friendly and sup­port­ive at­mos­phere, and new mem­bers are wel­come.
