Word of the day was presented by TM HN. The word was “Gorgeous”,
hoped the last meeting under 2020-21 cabinet.
Everyone used that word actively.
TM HK took a Toastmaster of the day role. That was his first attempt.
He did nicely as master of ceremony.

He asked all respondent to discipline the imagination by interesting questions
such as the benefit of virtual trip etc.
