Dawn and Sally competed at the Area Q54 speech contests this weekend, each winning first place in her contest type! Dawn won first place in the International Speech Contest with her heart-warming speech entitled “Pop,” while Sally placed first by spinning a yarn entitled “Go Texan Day” in the Tall Tales Speech Contest. Each will now go on to compete at Division Q in April. Congratulations to both members!
After several months without someone to serve as Sergeant-at-Arms, we are happy to announce that this Executive Leadership role has been filled by one of our newest members, Luke.
Also, congratulations to Allison upon delivering her Ice Breaker speech!
I hope you will be able to join us next week when I will be serving as Toastmaster-of-the-Day!
Thank you to everyone who turned out on Thursday to hear Dr. Farzana Chohan speak about the ways she has benefitted from her experience in Toastmasters.
