Transfer-Wk 5,Sun.-PFSP Refresher

This weekend I went to the annual PFSP Refresher. I find events like these help me to keep the targets in mind. Actually, I’ve found anything which keeps my targets in mind is extremely helpful, such as; the follow up therapy sessions, the Demosthenes Society, Toastmasters, and the annual PFSP Refresher.

Rommel’s Charity BBQ was discussed this morning. Basically, one of the past participants got this idea to have a charity BBQ, and took the initiative to do it. He didn’t throw it out there as an idea, but actually made the arrangements, started inviting people, and looking for sponsors. Last year he raised about $3,000.00, which covered his expenses, paid for 2 people who could not afford therapy to take the program, and there is over $500 remaining, which will go towards somebody’s therapy at next years BBQ.

The refresher ends with a speech from most of the participants, and since there are few speeches more inspiring than Winston Churchill’s, I delivered a Winston Churchill rip off. Here it is :

We shall speak on the seas and oceans
We shall speak with growing confidence and growing strength in the air
We shall use our targets, whatever the cost may be
We shall speak on the beaches
We shall speak on the landing grounds
We shall speak in the fields and in the streets
We shall speak in the hills
We shall never surrender to the illusion of spontaneous fluency

Not meant as advice, please find a qualified therapist if you are interested in similar therapy.
