Auburn Morning Toastmasters is seeking former members to help celebrate its diamond anniversary this summer. Chartered on July 25, 1959, the group has been serving the city of Auburn for 60 years.
“Auburn Morning Toastmasters is helping its current members to improve their communications and leadership skills,” said Kim Haynes, president of the club. “We’d like to have an opportunity to thank past members who helped build the club over the years.”
Among the past members is the late Donnie Berry, a longtime Auburn community volunteer, and leader.
Former members are asked to email [email protected] to be included in upcoming events.
Through self-paced educational programs, Toastmasters shed their fear of public speaking, while gaining organizational and leadership skills that help them progress in their professional and personal lives. Cost for members is less than that of a latte per week.
Auburn Morning Toastmasters meets at 6:30 Thursday mornings at the Auburn Chamber of Commerce, 420 E. Main Street. The public is welcome to visit meetings to see what Toastmasters can do for them. Parking is available on the street and behind the building.
Auburn Morning Toastmasters is part of Toastmasters District 32, which encompasses Western Washington from Federal Way to Chehalis; the Kitsap, Key and Olympic Peninsulas; and clubs throughout Alaska. For more information on District 32, visit http://d32toastmasters.org/.
