Today’s speech is about a reunion online.
( I posted the same contents 4 days before.)
We have the high school reunion every year.
But this year we could not meet in person under this Pandemic Corona Virus.
Then the organizer planned a meeting online by the tele-work software called "Zoom" last Saturday.
I participated in the meeting on my PC.
The member was 12 and the meeting started at 3.
Each member talked about his current situation for around 3 minutes.
One member did relay from the spot of the volunteer activity, one member showed up with his grand child and another participated from the car on a business trip. It took much more than 40 minutes, we expected.
I was surprised at animated filmings.
I felt it looked like a TV-Program.
By making a good use of "Zoom", we could experience such a precious reunion so that we renewed our old friendship.
I introduced this “zoom book” to class guys.
