I discovered Toastmasters while stationed on the Navy base in Great Lakes, Illinois. I loved the organization. It helped with the number one fear people have – talking in front of a group of people. It was also helpful in learning different aspects of speaking, interacting, and quick thinking.
Once we moved back home, I considered rejoining the group. However, the closest one wasn’t close enough for me.
There is a small group looking into changing that. We are considering starting a group here in town.
