Mankato Toastmasters Club 175
- Mankato Toastmasters Club 175 meets at the Happy Chef on Highway 169 every Thursday at 5:30 until 7 PM. We currently have 24 members of various ages and occupations. Our club strives to halp everyone improve their speaking skills and at the same time have a great time. Below is a photo of the members taken in September 2011. We tend to have fewer participants in the summer than in the winter due to vacations and other obligations of our members. We hope to take a picture this winter with the full compliment of members present.
