  • Packet of Words of the Day : This packet will come in handy for members who need a word for the meeting.
  • New Guest Book with the Toastmasters Logo
  • Sign for Sunset Hills Community Center: We will list the times and days of the meetings. Additionally, we may add phone numbers to act as contact information for people who will be joining the meeting.
  • Table Topics Cards: We received a couple of decks. The Table Topics Cards can come in handy when members are in need of ideas for Table Topic questions.
