Many corporations are apt to give their employees more job responsibility and possibly a rate increase knowing that they have honed their leadership and speaking skills through such a widely recognized, well-known and prestigious organization.

On Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 6:30 p.m., Mainstream Toastmasters, club #2480, will hold an open house to celebrate thirty years in the community. Mainstream Toastmasters, located in Kernersville, North Carolina is one of the oldest clubs in North Carolina. Like all Toastmasters clubs, Mainstream helps members with personal and professional communication skills, while offering a save environment for honing of speaking and critiquing skills.

The keynote speaker will be Rev. Dr. Jeff Patterson, who was recently appointed the Yadkin Valley UMC District Superintendent. He is also the pastor of United Methodist Church in Kernersville. The open house theme is, “Where Hearts Are Empowered.”
The open house will be held at United Methodist Church, 306 South Main Street, in Kernersville. Refreshments will be served.
