Past Month's Highlights

.Our open house was held during the last meeting of February. We enjoyed  good food and the good company of visiters as well as our regular members.after a very productive meeting. Congratulations to Deanna for a wonderful ice breaker speech. A great start on the Toastmaster path. On the other end of the spectrum, Leonard shared inspiration with us all once more.  A_____e! In other words, we greatly enjoyed your message and delivery.  And we now have a new vocabulary challenge revealed, as a result. And that just makes it a great way to stretch those vocabulary wings. Very interesting, indeed! Looking forward to an expanding list of descriptive words from everybody!

The Toastmasters Mission
A statement of shared values

Every Toastmasters club shares the same mission, clearly defined in the following mission statement:

We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

Through this mission, each Toastmaster gains a clear understanding of the club's purpose, and the organization as a whole benefits from a shared set of values and goals.
