"Three local Toastmasters International clubs joined together with the Arts Council of White Lake-Nuveen Center to host an event to encourage new membership within the White Lake community. This event was named The Art of Speaking, Creating, and Performing. The clubs White Lake Toastmasters, Community Toastmasters of Muskegon and Coastal Communicators met at the Nuveen Center to have a meeting for interested community members.
