MISSION — The public is invited to learn more about Toastmasters International during a local club’s open house.

Toastmasters is an international program with a goal of improving communication, leadership and evaluation skills. Established in 1924, the organization’s membership exceeds 352,000 across 141 countries

The Cay-Uma-Wa Toastmasters Club invites people to attend Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m. in the Birch Room of the hotel at Wildhorse Resort & Casino, located off Interstate 84 at Exit 216. Those present will have an opportunity to ask questions and listen to a presentation by Jim Marquardt. Light refreshments will be served and door prizes will be handed out.

A Toastmaster since 2007, Marquardt is the past District 9 director and is the current vice president of public relations for the Pendleton Toastmasters Club. In 2015, he earned the Distinguished Toastmasters award, the highest honor a member can receive.
