Review of 2016 LACE Chapman

Written by

Another great LACE event. Maybe the best one ever.

The day started with our keynote speaker, Ricky Powell, DTM speaking about the three top skills for discovering happiness. At the start of his presentation, the power on campus went out. What a challenge for Ricky. To teach us about happiness during our darkest hour. As Toastmasters we learn how to overcome obstacles by not panicking as we make our adjustments. Ricky is as skilled as they come in these situations. His presentation was PowerPoint based, but he continued on without missing a beat. He challenged us to choose to be victors and not victims. Ricky led us out of the dark with his three top skills for discovering happiness: serving others, forgiveness, and gratitude.

Dr. Ralph Smedley, the founder of our organization, sponsored the first permanent Toastmasters club in Santa Ana during the fall of 1924. About a year later, in the fall of 1925, a guest from the nearby town of Anaheim attended the Santa Ana club. This visit signaled a new direction for Smedley’s Toastmasters idea. The creation of a second club, and in a few years, a multiplying of more clubs, secured its lasting establishment. Essentially, Toastmasters doubled in the number of clubs in little over a year, all happening in the Founders District (although Founders District would organize later, in 1944).
