Led by Eloquents Toastmasters, Lansing area clubs got a booth at the BluesFest on September 15 and 16. Members from Eloquents Toastmasters, Capital City Toastmasters and Lansing Lucidas got together to promote their clubs.
Members talked to visitors, handed out flyers and business cards, collected contact information and
volunteered as MC and Bucket Brigade during the festival. Members collaborated with BluesFest organizer MICA (Michigan Institute for Contemporary Art) to raise awareness of Toastmasters clubs and enjoy the music.
Eloquents Toastmasters President Kimberly Allen organized the event and Area 5 Director Andy McCullough and Area 7 Director Aaron Sun reached out to Lansing Area clubs to facilitate the event .
