Interesting People

I have met some really interesting persons since I have moved here.
Does anyone remember Dianne? She visited with us at our book club meeting once. She introduced herself as a housewife. Who would have guessed that she was a fantastic actress as well.

On Saturday I went to see Sordid Lives, written by Del Shores and presented by our local Trembling Earth Production. It was held at the "theater" upstairs KD's Restaurant. Dianne had a key role in this very risque and funny play.

Another interesting person I have met is Linda. This morning Linda gave her twentieth speech for the Okefenokee Toastmasters Club. She has now completed a basic manual plus two advanced manuals; one on humorous speeches and one on special occasion speeches. She is now in the category of Advanced Toastmaster(ATM)Bronze. The Okefenokee Toastmasters is a part of Toastmasters International, a nonprofit organization that focuses on building leadership and oral communication skills. They meet every Wednesday at 7:00AM at the Holiday Inn.

Hopefully you will all get to meet Linda next week. She is busily reading All Over but the Shoutin' by Rick Bragg.
