What a gathering of the Florida Ventriloquism Association on May 4, 2014. Over 20 in attendance including, Lee Wolfson & Carol Stein, Margaret Davis, Tom Dahl, Donald Woodford, Mark Edson, Harry Schwab, Uncle Ray, Mark & Jody Wade and Jackie Manna.

Tom Dahl, gave a recap of the Give Kids The World (GKTW) show. Participating in the show was, Margaret Davis, Lee Wolfson, Malcolm "Denny" Denemark and Tom. The show was well received by those in attendance. Kids were welcomed to personally interact with the figures and have their pictures taken, which many did so. Plans are in the works to have future and regular shows with other members welcomed to perform.

Then it was onto the highlight of the meeting, a workshop by Mary Thompson Hunt. Mary is a accomplished actress, spokesperson, improvisational artist and author of the book, "Truth in Comedy". She shared her thoughts on how improvisation could be used to further enhance our performances. With improvisation, your audience can quite often be brought into your routine giving it a personal touch. Members participated in exercises to demonstrate supporting others (yes, your figure needs support), listening, teamwork, and story building. Mary demonstrated her skill of story building by taking a topic given to her, and as the story progresses, audience provided snip bits are interjected into the story making for a very comical and entertaining story.

For a wrap up of the meeting, all were treated to a wonderful BBQ meal provided by Lee Wolfson and Carol Stein.
