Daybreak Wants to Start Your Day Right

Daybreak TaostmastersDaybreak Toastmasters is my home club. It is the club in Santa Clarita that fits my busy schedule as it meets BEFORE I start my day.

The meetings are at 7:00 AM on the second and fourth Thursday. We meet in the College of the Canyons University Center. Meeting consist of members giving prepared speeches; members participating in impromptu speaking, called Table topics and speech evaluations. On meeting days, it seems my day goes right.

I had a recent opportunity to give a presentation of a typical Daybreak meeting and an explanation of the Toastmasters Program.  You can experience that presentation here.
