The weekly free newspaper The News Mississauga which is delivered free with flyers has a page titled Community Calender in which we can give free public service announcements about our forthcoming meetings. I have seen announcements by Meadowvale Toastmasters, Port Credit Toastmasters, and Lakeview Toastmasters informing their weekly meeting days and times.
