— Toastmasters

Toastmaster members learn to improve critical thinking skills as speeches are prepared and learn to participate in the evaluation of speeches. If you would like to learn ways to think more critically as you make decisions throughout your week, consider visiting a Toastmasters meeting.

 Toastmasters meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the Three Rivers Museum, 220 Elgin St.

The next meeting is April 2. On April 16, Toastmasters will have a “meet and greet” during its regular meeting to encourage new members. Wine and cheese will be served.

Muskogee Friends of the Library

The Muskogee Friends of the Library, Books Sandwiched In program will be at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the Muskogee Public Library. The guest speaker will be Janis Cramer, who is a retired Oklahoma creative writing teacher. Cramer has begun publishing her own portfolio of writings with titles such as “Kissy Kay,” “2001, A Gorilla Odyssey,” and “Happy Bottom.” Her writings reflect her experiences of growing up in Muskogee in the 1950s. Each memory she writes about shows the way her life was at the time including the time she met Bob Dylan or when she climbed up a mountain in Rwanda to see gorillas.

The sandwich lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a drink and dessert for $3. A small business meeting will be conducted by Susan Asquith, president. Members are urged to attend and bring a guest.
