Bailey Toastmasters Hosts Open House February 8th at Euclid Public Library

Bailey Toastmasters member Mike Wojciechowicz leads a recent Toastmasters Meeting.

BaileyToastmasters invites residents to an open house on February 8th to meet members, learn about the new Toastmasters Pathways Learning Experience, and observe the basic elements of a Toastmasters meeting. Toastmasters’ mission is to empower individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders. The event will be held at the Euclid Public Library, starting at 7 p.m. and finishing by 8:30 p.m. It is free to the public and refreshments will be served.

“Bailey Toastmasters provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to develop their communication and leadership skills,” says Jeanine Maschak, Vice President Membership.

After hearing about the Pathways program, members and guests will enjoy a regular Toastmasters meeting that will include prepared speeches, Table Topics™ (impromptu speeches) and evaluations.

 “Table Topics are one of my favorite parts of the meeting,” says Janice Sewell, who has served in various club positions and currently serves as the Vice President Education. “This is where guests and members are randomly selected to speak for one to two minutes. It helps you think and speak clearly on your feet.”

Bailey Toastmasters meets each Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Euclid Public Library, 631 E. 222nd St. For more information about this event and the club, please visit
