Toastmasters International
Feb 26 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 345,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.

Neighborhood Watch Captains Meeting
Feb 28 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

According to the Economic Development Chairperson, Diane Flores, this is one way to have potential home buyers and investors come to Barstow and raise the value of our city. Crime prevention is the best way to help keep our homes and our neighborhoods safe. One of the most effective crime preventions tools is Neighborhood Watch. It is an organized group of citizens devoted to crime and vandalism prevention within a neighborhood. We support the Barstow Police Department and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. We can be their eyes and ears and report suspicious activity.

Ann Marie Hammond, has been selected as the sub-committee chair and has begun facilitating monthly meetings to recruit Barstow area citizens to be Captains of their neighborhoods. At this time, there are 12 civic-minded residents that have stepped-up to be trained as Captains. However, there are many more neighborhoods that need to be covered. The 1-hour meetings are a support group where crime reports are distributed, trainings are conducted and have relevant guest speakers.

The next meeting will be held Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 6:00 p.m. at Tony’s Buffet & Steakhouse Restaurant, located at 1523 E. Main St., Barstow, CA
