2015 Speech Contest
The seven speech contestants entertained us with an impressive variety of speeches: we travelled from South Africa to rural New Zealand, learned about the work of volunteers in the Fire Service and Citizens’ Advice Bureau, the joy of music, valuing the traditional foods of our grandparents and gaining personal freedom and starting anew.
First place was awarded to Betz (far right) for her speech entitle What are the Odds? and whose subject was Fact or Fantasy. Second place went to Rachel (centre) and Sharon (left)gained third place.
Betz will represent our club at NZ Region level and we wish her well and hope that the odds are in her favour in July in Rotorua.
