    I accidentally deleted the authorship, but below is Laura Hepler’s comment:

    It was a spectacular (albeit chilly) meeting. All three of our speakers provided informative and entertaining speeches, from Lauralie’s sled dog analogy through Larry’s Jesse James experience and Jan’s vision of eager, energizing evaluations. I am so excited about 2014 in Colville Toastmasters.
