Meeting of Hamilton Speakers
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.
