Recent Kiewa-Tangambalanga Lions Club activities:
July 2014 - JUNIOR PUBLIC SPEAKERSThe annual Kiewa/Tangam Lions Club Junior Public Speaking Competition took place at the Community Centre on Monday July 7th . This was the Club Final for the 5/6 and 3/4 sections of the competition and the delivery of speeches from the contestants was exceptional.
Representing the 5/6 ‘s were Maggie Heffernan and Rory McClure while Paris Weller and Maddison Coulston represented the 3/4’s. The topic for the 5/6’s was ‘A Toast to Someone You Admire from your Community’ and Ray Rolfe and Imogen Wallace were the centre of attention from Rory and Maggie. The 3/4 ‘s had to, from a tourist’s point of view, tell us about an Australian Holiday. Port MacQuarie and Port Douglas were the chosen destinations and both girls certainly sold their holiday venues really well. Of course there can be only one winner from each section and Maggie and Maddison were the ultimate winners. But of course they all were winners and the Lions Club indeed showed their enjoyment of their speaking, and the evening as a whole ,with a huge round of applause.
