The Gelfand Story

Our name honors the memory of our founders, Bob and Clara Gelfand.

Since February 1969, when the first strike of the gavel opened the Good Morning Toastmasters Club’s introductory meeting, Bob and Clara Gelfand worked tirelessly. They were dedicated to providing a forum where people could learn, practice, enhance and eventually teach public speaking and leadership skills consistent with the protocol of Toastmasters International.

By continuing to regularly meet as Toastmasters and by welcoming new members into our club, we are keeping the Gelfand’s spirit, memory and legacy alive.

Our Mission

We share the mission of Toastmasters International: “We provide a
supportive and positive learning experience in which members are
empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in
greater self-confidence and personal growth. ”
