Will Rogers Returns to Regular Meetings

The Will Rogers Club is now meeting in person at its regular location. Precautions are being taken to insure a safe meeting. These include extra spacing between individuals, a limit on the number of people in the room, and options to wear a mask if desired. Hand sanitizer is also available. Visitors are welcome as usual.

A virtual format is also being retained for a period of time for those individuals who are not yet ready to venture into public. Thus, meetings will be in hybrid form for awhile. Attending in virtual format may be desired for those individuals who have underlying health conditions or who are in contact with a vulnerable family member. Please contact Barbara Crockett at barbara.crockett@ cox.net for the access code for attending the meeting in virtual format.

Introducing the Will Rogers Toastmasters Club


Group Photo, May 7, 2019

We are pleased to welcome several new members that have joined the club over the past few months. New members bring in fresh ideas, talents, and enthusiasm. At the same time, longer-term members provide the experience and expertise needed to foster the growth of the new members. The combination of the new and established members has created some great meetings with a lot of fun, fellowship, and learning. The Will Rogers Club is a diverse group with different professional, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. It is particularly rewarding to learn more about the different countries that are represented by members of the club. Guests are always welcome. You can visit as much as you like and there is no requirement to speak at the meeting. Guests frequently tell us about the warm and fun atmosphere of the club. The Magical Moment award is given every meeting to that person who tells about an outside experience that was made possible by their training in Toastmasters. The Bull Award is also given in fun to a Toastmaster who may have committed a minor faux pas in the meeting.

Whether you’re a professional, student, stay-at-home parent, or retiree, Toastmasters is the best way to improve your communication skills. Toastmasters can help you lose the fear of public speaking and learn skills that will help you be more successful in whatever path you’ve chosen. You’ll be a better listener. You’ll easily lead teams and conduct meetings. You’ll comfortably give and receive constructive evaluation. You already have some or all of these skills. In Toastmasters, you will enhance them. Toastmasters International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping its members develop skills in public speaking, meeting planning, and organizational management.
