BRATTLEBORO — The only meeting of BrattleMasters in November will be on Thursday, Nov. 14, at 6 p.m. in Room 249, Vermont Technical College, 41 Harmony Place. The local Toastmasters club normally meets the second and fourth Thursdays of the month, but because Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday, the next get together won't be until December.

Eddie Sause of Shelburne Falls, Mass. will be the emcee of the meeting. Club president Dora Levinson is scheduled to give a speech, plus there is a possibility of one other speech that night. Each speaker is assigned an evaluator who will give both a verbal and written evaluation of the positive points plus areas for improvement.

An off-the-cuff exercise will be conducted for members and anyone in the audience. Without any preparation, volunteers answer questions in one to two minutes. The "ah" counter, timer and grammarian will give reports near the end of the meeting. At every meeting, members take turns filling these roles.

Refreshments will be provided mid-way through the 90-minute meeting.
