Are you feeling a stir of excitement for what September may look like?


Are you moving away from a sense of feeling stalled in your professional life and having the urge to re-focus on current and future goals?   We are too and that is why we feel this is the perfect time to hold an Open House for our Club.  Toastmasters can help with that.


As for me, I am thoroughly enjoying the online meetings and online conferences.  They not only save valuable time but since 82% of Toastmaster Clubs all over the world have moved to meeting online, we now get to experience different cultures as members have attended our meetings from across Canada and the US.  Our own members have joined Club meetings as far afield as Belgium, Germany. 


Our Open House is scheduled for Wednesday, June 16th from 7:00 – 8:30

and we would love to invite you as our guest to join this meeting.   


Please contact me, Donna Fancey at if you are interested or would like more information on how to join our meeting.


If you are looking for an opportunity to get out there, talk to some real live people (you know, versus on Zoom) and promote your business, then please pencil in the following
