Mitchell Toastmasters Club 495 met on Jan. 14 at Mitchell Public Library with seven members present. Vice President Pat Oleson opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, and Molly Sutton gave the invocation. Pat introduced Duane Duba as the toastmaster. He introduced our first speaker, Jim Jelden, who gave the speech "Jelden Real Estate." Duane called on our second speaker, Doug Voelske, who spoke on "Passion or Purpose."

Andrew Mefford presented Table Topics. He called on four members. Duane asked Molly to be the general evaluator. She called on Pat to evaluate Jim's Speech, then she called on Loren Kasten to evaluate Doug's speech. Pat gave the grammarian report. He talked about the meeting in general. As timer, Duane reported that everyone was in time. Doug was voted the best speaker. Pat was the best evaluator and Loren was voted as giving the best table topic. Pat conducted the business meeting. With no old business, he asked for new business, which was a discussion about having a valentine party with our Feb. 11 regular meeting night and inviting our spouses. More about that later. For the meeting next week everyone was directed to wear their favorite hat and have a short talk about it.

Pat adjourned the meeting.
