I Propose A Toast

After putting it off for about 45 years I finally made it to Toastmasters.

Minot ToastmastersMinot Toastmasters 636 meets every Tuesday at the Grand International Hotel at 6:00 PM in The Board Room.

My 17 year old son Timmothy and I attended together.

The Toastmasters is much more than I expected. I knew it would be a be a good experience for each of us and for different reasons.

Timmothy has a hard time expressing himself verbally, which it ends up was the reason about 50% of the participants were there, and I want to improve my speaking for my on air radio speaking.

I won't go into detail about the proceedures of the club but it really is a wonderful group effort in helping each other reach our individual goal to better ourselves when speaking to others.

Absolutely everyone there made us feel welcome but I want to thank club president Wole (pronounced Wally), Sheila, and Emmanuel for going above and beyond in making two strangers feel welcome to the club.
