On Thursday evening, March 31st, both Dr Andrea Franklin and Tim Burns captured 1st Place wins in their respective contests at RCU’s headquarters in downtown Eau Claire. It was a great honor to be representatives for our club in the International and Table Topics speech events, capturing “golds”and competing against several other very talented Toastmasters. It was an exciting moment we will never forget!
Now we move on to the next round and compete against other area club members, on Saturday, April 9, at Globe University at 10 AM, with a chance to move on to the District Contest in Milwaukee. The best speakers will keep moving on to larger national venues, with a chance to compete in Las Vegas in the Fall in the Toastmasters International Championships against club members from around the world! If you have never attended a Toastmasters’ event, this is a great opportunity to see how Toastmasters benefits people in every aspect of their lives. The event is open to the public, and best of all there is no cost to attend!
