Toastmasters holiday party

Toastmasters International held its annual holiday party Dec. 20 at the RSF Community Center for members and guests. The party was held prior to the last regular meeting of the 2011 RSF Toastmasters. While imbibing on refreshments and hors d’oeuvres, attendees chatted with family and friends. With a new board of directors in place, the club will continue its role of helping people overcome their fears of public speaking.

Meetings are casual and open to residents of the Rancho Santa Fe area. They are structured to begin and end within a one-hour time frame. Using time-tested methods to help individuals build communication and leadership skills, this curriculum allows people to focus on their preferred topic while receiving positive input from their peers. Prospective members are invited to attend a meeting to see how much fun they can have. Meetings are held on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the RSF Community Center, 5970 La Sendita, Rancho Santa Fe.
