Division Speech Contest: Richard Nott wins 2nd Prize in Table Topics!

Terri DittmanCongratulations to Richard Nott for his success representing our club as runner up in the Central Division Table Topics contest against stiff competition, after winning the area contest earlier this month.

The topic was "A busy person always has time" and after Richard listed all his activities all could see that he was a perfect example of this!

We were proud to be photographed with Richard holding his hard won certificate on the day!

Best Wishes,

Terri Dittman
