Toastmasters invites the public to its open house 10:30 a.m. to noon Dec. 8 at the River Falls Public Library (140 Union St.)

The guest speaker will be Dustin Dodge, co-owner with Mike O'Hara of the Swinging Bridge Brewery.

Dodge, an air force veteran and firefighter in the Twin Cities, was always interested in a small business. He will share how Swinging Bridge Brewery got its start, how he found the space and financial support with the tutelage of the UW-River Falls Small Business Development Center, a mentoring organization called SCORE and a regional business fund.

Those interested are invited to come and ask questions about starting a small business.

Light refreshments will be provided.
