Originally the club was called The Vikings. For those of you familiar with The Vikings on the History Channel you can see that we are fortunate to have made that change that closely correlates with our mission statement.
"The mission of the Power Speakers Toastmaster Club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth."
