Speech contest season ramps up for fall

It is speech-contest season for Toastmasters International and a local winner at the recent area contest in Nanaimo will compete  against other regions at the  Coombs Fairgrounds on Saturday from 1-4 p.m. and guests are welcome.

Ceri Peacey of Arbutus Toastmasters in Parksville  scored first place in the Table Topics Contest with her delightful rendition of traveling over New York City in a hot air balloon. She’ll be competing against Table Topics winners from the mid and north Island and Powell River in Coombs.

Kirk Walper also from Arbutus Toastmasters placed second in the Humorous Speech Contest.
