A huuuuuge congratulations to Mr. Jay Kiew for doing WGTM proud by taking home first place at the Division B Speech Contest! He will also have the honour of representing District 21 at the District Speech Contest held at the Spring 2012 Conference in Harrison Hot Springs May 11-13. We are all incredibly proud and privileged to have Jay represent, and overwhelmed by his continued growth speech after speech. We're rooting for you Jay! :D
Thank you executives, members and guests who came out last night for the Area 23 Speech Contest! The night was a roller-coaster ride -- full of amazing speeches and great people! A big thank you to our chair and all the judges and volunteers who helped put this together!

Good luck to both of you in the Division Speech Contest on April 26!!! :D Make sure to check out the photos from our event!
