International Speech Contest Results

Greetings, Club 832 members,
Last night’s International Speech and Evaluations contest was a spirited event!  We had a three contestants in each contest, including a last-minute signup by Forrest Sallee in both contests!  In the end, experience (and timeliness) won out, with Franni Turean taking first place in both contests!  Here are the final results:
International Speech:
  1. Franni Turean
  2. Forrest Sallee
  3. Phil Irvin
  1. Franni Turean
  2. Forrest Sallee

We had several visitors, and everyone else in the room had a role to fulfill.  We were graced by a visiting dignitary: Maria Smith, President of our neighbor club, Daystar Dialoguers, as our Guest Speaker for the Evaluations contest.  She also presented the awards to the winning contestants.

Hats off to our core contest team:
  • Contest Chair – Laura Bailey
  • Toastmaster – Karen Lezon
  • Chief Judge – Kate Christian
…and to the whole rest of the membership in attendance, who served as Timers, Ballot Counters, and Sergeants at Arms.
Franni will represent us at the Area 43 contest, on March 21 at the Kent Senior Activity Center (600 E Smith St, Kent, WA 98030).  The registration and potluck will start at 5:30 p.m.  By coincidence, that contest will be held on the same night as our club meeting, but I encourage anyone who can make it to go and cheer Franni on!  In the event that Franni is unable to make it to the competition, Forrest will fill in as our representative in both contests.
Please join me in congratulating Franni, celebrating all the contestants, and appreciating everyone for contributing their energy and enthusiasm to make the contest a success!

If you missed our Feb 7th meeting….

What a great meeting! We had lots and lots of fun! It was great to see some familiar faces that we haven’t seen for a while and that was so great. We had an icebreaker from Yusupha! It was amazing to hear about his journey from Africa to New York to Seattle. Than we had two seasoned speakers who did a fabulous job! Our next meeting is on the 21st of February. This is our International Speech contest meeting with the theme “Inspiration”. Hope to see you all there!!!
