Cheshire Toastmasters

Cheshire Toastmasters will be meeting at the Cheshire Historical Society on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. The meeting starts at 7:15 and lasts about 2 hours.

Their mission is to provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self confidence and personal growth.

Guests are always welcome. Stop by and see what they do!
