An Obscure Piece of Club History

Komen Toastmasters, the club from which Brinker Toastmasters was formed, first met at the Washington Navy Yard and in nice weather would sometimes meet outdoors in front of the Barry. The Barry set out on its last journey today. There’s a short video at the end of this story from WTOP, and I am one of those who remembers not just the Barry but speaking and competing with the noise made by helicopters and traffic in and out of National Airport.
