This is a picture of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce Toastmasters Group. I had the great and enjoyable privilege of attending their open house yesterday at the Boardman Road Branch Library in Poughkeepsie (a beautiful library to visit if you never have).
Look at the array of friendly faces in this picture! I saw first hand that if you want to improve your public speaking skills or just gain a bit more confidence expressing yourself, there simply couldn't be a more supportive group of people to help you improve. I had a wonderful time at the open house, enjoyed some interesting and entertaining speakers, and was invited to say a few words myself.
Special thanks to Maria Sciuto, the Toastmaster for the afternoon event and to all of the members and guests who made me feel so welcome.
