With new officers and a new, weekly meeting schedule, the 412 Lakes Club 8339 of Toastmasters International has a fresh focus and is looking to boost its membership, as well.


"We're making a new start, with a fresh slate of officers," says Ted Schaum, who serves as the group's vice president of membership and public relations. Those officers also include Brenda Houts, president; Gloria Anderson, secretary/treasurer; Katherine Furey, sergeant-at-arms; and Patty Heath Gordon, coach.
