March 8, 2023 Breakfast Meeting Notes


Today we hosted the area round of the speech contest. Maureen Polimeno introduced the 3 contestants: Dalton Lylvk from Lincooln-Woodstock, Chloe Jenness from Newfound, and Lily O’Brien from Plymouth. We had 3 judges, one each from the 3 clubs, and Omer served as timekeeper. The topic for this year is “Why is Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion so Important?” Tony did trivia (Heroes, Villains, and Unique people of the Granite State) while the judges were tabulating their scores. 


The contest results:  Dalton was the runner-up, while Lily and Chloe tied for winner and will receive the same prize. Thanks to all for their inspiring presentations!
