Celebrate United Nations Month at the CCA!

Chelmsford Toastmasters Present Free Program October 14

Learn How to Show Your Appreciation!

We always mean to tell the people in our lives how much they mean to us.  How much we care.  How much they’ve affected our lives.
We mean to – and then often we don’t.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to show someone your appreciation.  Learn how to create your own Appreciation Project – a short, taped speech that you can give to someone as a lasting memory.
Chelmsford Toastmasters, a club dedicated to helping people speak better to improve their lives, is hosting a special meeting on Thursday, October 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. to share how to develop, give, and record an Appreciation Speech.  It will be held at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts, 1A North Road in Chelmsford.  The event is free and open to everyone.
At the meeting, members of the club will share their own speeches of appreciation.  The founder of will discuss the mechanics of writing, presenting, and recording a speech.  And all attendees will receive a handout on how to create their own Appreciation Project.
