The HUB City Toastmasters met on Wednesday, Oct. 28,
at the Pharr Chamber of Commerce, 308 W. Park.

Club President Brian Epps called the meeting to order and
introduced guests John Lopez and Emma Carrillo.  Thanks to
Phyllis Smith, Treasurer of Metro Toastmasters, for attending
and helping us out.

Katrin Miovski served as Toastmaster of the meeting.  She
introduced Jose Guerrero who spoke from project #5 in
the Communication Manual, Your Body Speaks, entitled
"Hitting the Sweet Spot."  The second speaker was Brian
who spoke from project #4, Get to the Point, entitled "Things
I Want to Do."

good marks from evaluators John Lopez and Phyllis Smith as well
as suggestions on improving their presentations.
Arlene Hernandez served as Grammarian and Phyllis Allen as Timer.

Emma, Arlene and Phyllis A.

It was a lively meeting.  Guest John Lopez is a former Toastmaster

what she needs at this time in her life.   She is joining.   Welcome Emma
