A day of performances

What an event filled Saturday!  I went to the area Toastmaster contest in Gettysburg to support the Chambersburg club’s contestant, Steve Frey.  Steve presented very well and will be advancing to the next round in Frederick, MD.  I met some wonderful people and had a great time.  After the contest, I took part in a Speak-A-Thon where we got a chance to practice in front of a different audience than our usual and also be evaluated by someone new.  It was a great experience.  I learned so much just watching and listening to the other speakers today.  As for my own performance…many areas for improvement (watch the embedded video, if you’d like to see how I did) but I truly enjoyed the experience and always appreciate the opportunity to practice.  This was a new speech…I plan to use it as part of a presentation to a high school group next week.

Tonight I took my 6 year old daughter to our local high school to watch Alice In Wonderland.  The kids at Shippensburg High School put on a fantastic performance!  So much talent on stage as well as behind the scenes.  Abby loved it.
