Eggcellent turnout for our Easter themed meeting as we had 30 individuals, 24 Igniters and 6 guests on March 22, 2016.
Rick, our first speaker did an awesome job of his CC #1, Icebreaker speech, titled “It’s About Time”. Speaker two, Julie presented great visuals and great enthusiasm for her CC #8 speech “Chinese Characters” that taught us the meaning and how to write a few Chinese characters. It was great to hear Ellen’s club competition winning speech ‘What You Want, What You Get”. We are very lucky to have such a variety of presenters and splendid evaluators to share their skills with us.

Kieth's presentation about the less than sinister wolf, gave Clemons, Glen, Chris and Anne an opportunity to show their skills at evaluation. They each gave their evaluation, using a variety of methods and then it was left to the judges.
