Business Meeting / Potluck Lunch - September 12

Crosswindians, 

On September 12th, our next meeting will be an all-business meeting and lunch potluck/brown bag!

Bring and share your favorite small dish, snack, and/or refreshment!


We'll use this business meeting to discuss a variety of topics such as but not limited to club officer training, public outreach, membership growth, and yearly club goals!

While bringing any visitors are welcome, a regular club meeting may be a better option for them to see Toastmasters in its full glory!
