A look forward: May 15 is the roll-out for the new PATHWAYS program for our region. There is no club on the face of the planet that is more prepared for this historic Toastmasters event than Club #28. Thank you to Marie Loeffler DTM for being our mentor and Pathways guru over the past year. A reminder to all of our club members:  go to the website, be able to sign in and check out the Pathways section ahead of time. This program is exciting. The potential learning opportunities seem endless!

A look back: We had to meet at the Southeast Branch Library for a few weeks over the past couple of months. I am happy to say that we have been confirmed at our “toastmaster home”; the Herndon Branch Library for the next three months! We are also working on having a “permanent back-up” location in place for the foreseeable future.

As we make final confirmation, check back right here!

A look forward: We are looking for some new members to add to our club! Don’t keep the communication and leadership skills; not to mention the fun, joy and fellowship we have here a secret! Spread the word about Club #28!
