Club news 11/03/13

— Club news runs on Sundays. The deadline for club news is noon Wednesday.


People who rely too heavily on digital communication tend to lose the ability to communicate face-to-face. If you find it difficult to communicate with others, consider joining Toastmasters where face-to-face communication is a priority.

Toastmasters meet at 6:30 p.m. this Tuesday at Three Rivers Museum, 220 Elgin.

Books will be available for purchase and one member will win a copy.
