I joined Toastmasters fifteen years ago. I read the meeting notice in the Ballard News. Dave Livingstone encouraged me to join Toastmasters. I enjoyed meeting with my new friends who were working to learn and overcome their own problems. I later joined two writing classes. With the help of my teacher, we have published two books available on Amazon, One Page at a Time and Laughs, Luck & Life, From A-Z. Life is more interesting when working for improvement.
