Opening Remarks & The Toast
Good morning. Mr President, Fellow Toastmasters and Guests. Welcome to Pudong Toastmaster Club 735th Meeting. I am Stefanie and I am very happy to be your Toastmaster of the day. It is my responsibility to bring you through the meeting properly today.
Today's meeting theme is fall. I don't know about you. But I love fall! In Shanghai, the spring season is very short, the summer is very hot, the winter very cold while the fall is full of magnificent colors. During this season, all the leaves from the trees change into multi-colored works of art and fall away. And fall is one of the most packed holiday seasons.It's a great time to go hiking,camping, go on a road trip or anything else you can spend quality time with family and friends.
Now we can feel from the weather that fall is just around the corner! It's the time to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. So I'd like to propose a toast, to 'the season of harvest-Fall'.
Introducing the General Evaluation Team

Our GE today is an distinguished guest from People's Square Toastmaster Club. He has been with Toastmasters for 2.5 years. He has severed as many officer roles. And he is now the VPE of People's Square Toastmaster Club.
