Stop trying to get me to watch Tiger King. I already have to watch one bottle-blonde from reality TV. And the other reason I'm not watching Tiger King is that torturing animals is what got us into this mess.

Dan Klompmaker was our featured speaker today.

He used a story from his marriage to emphasize the importance of Stephen Covey's Maxim:
"First seek to understand, then seek to be understood."

Join us every Wednesday at noon for a rousing hour of public speaking and leadership training.

Hey, everybody, It's time to fall into place at Toastmasters. Summer is over and there is plenty of work to do to move forward individually and as a Toastmasters' Team! We'll be looking forward to seeing you! 12:00 Wednesdays in Kirkhof!
It's time, not summer time anymore, but fall...come on y'all--come to Toastmasters with an expectancy: A Fall Expectancy and you will come away with a take away!!! 12:00 Wednesdays, in Kirkhof building as usual. Sign up for a role to save time and enhance efficiency! If you can do table topics, you can do a 5-minute speech which is like 2 Table Topics. Let us know what you are working on in your new Pathway! We can all use encouragement and accountability! Time to get ready for upcoming Open House, Contests and Special Events!
