Tuesdays at Toastmasters

What makes the week go fast after it began so slowly? Perhaps we’ve overloaded our schedules with more than we can carry. However, there are some things that need to be done. If it’s time for change, perhaps stopping by a Toastmasters meeting for lunch is the thing to do. For newcomers, lunch is free while one learns how to speak in public in front of a group of people. I attended a local Toastmasters group in my area not long ago, and was astounded at the friendly environment I’d stepped into. The food was great, and the lesson learned was worth my time. I even wrote a poem to commerate the day. City Range is the restaurant where the group met, and their agenda lasted only one hour. One hour! It was amazing how much information was chunked into that time. Toastmasters is highly promoted, as far as I’m concerned. A group near you can be located via the internet.

At City Range

It’s time for change

 Platform to boast

A feat to toast

~

Dress for success

And do your best

Today’s your turn

To teach and learn.

~

With much to tell

     Don’t want to fail.

   New friendships found.

    I’m speaker bound.

~

Our motto feed

 With help—succeed

Time to adjourn?

Much more to learn.

~

One hour—stop.

The gavel drop

For hope and change

At City Range.
