Weekend Kneeler Jeopardy

Category: American History

What was the name of the religious revival that swept through the American Colonies during the mid-18th century?

Alright, Vincenzo gets it yet again!! The Great Awakening.

Back up question, Category: Organizations
What US fraternal organization specializes in cultivating the art of public speaking?

HINT: Think of roast, each year they roast someone.

I'm glad I'm homeschooling so I'll learn all this stuff I forgot. Demerits for using Google or other search engines!

St. Alex says, place your answer in the form of a question in the combox, say a prayer for First Friday intentions, while you wait for the answer to be revealed.

Your humble prize for a correct answer is the satisfaction of knowing you remembered all that history you learned in school!

What is "Toastmasters"?

My sister joined it a long time ago and kind of let it go but I was just thinking about trying to find a group in my area because I love to talk but get so nervous in front of more than two people and start saying "like" a lot.

This is a "fraternal" organization...Toastmaster's isn't what I was thinking. There is another organization I had in mind, but Toastmasters kinda fits. My husband belonged to Toastmasters for awhile when we lived in Seattle. Close, but no cigar!
