Since May of 2014, Division G, New Clubs Chair, John Barry and his team which includes Immediate Past Division G Governor, Gwen Earle and Area G2 Governor, Linda Robinson have been working diligently to Charter a New Club in Laguna Beach!  Progress has been steady and momentum continues to build.  Each week Members from several others clubs converge in the beautiful beach community and meet in the heart of Laguna Beach at the local library on Monday evenings.  In order to Charter a New Club, the magic number is twenty Members.  Each week more new faces visit the group as guests and the core nucleus of recruits continues to grow.  This will be a Community Club which is open to anyone over the age of eighteen years.  It will meet weekly on Monday evenings from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.  Membership dues are paid semi-annually and the fee is approximately $10.00 per month.  Many thanks to those Toastmasters who have already volunteered their time to help with this worthy initiative!  Any other Toastmaster Members who are able to pitch in to help get this club started are encouraged to join us!  If you are interested in learning more you are invited to attend as a guest or contact John Barry for more information:
