The Division A Fall 2015 Contest was held today, Saturday, October 31, 2015, organized by two of our sister clubs: Toastmasters 75 and Club Expressions.
Let's see who the all the winners were, who will be going on to Amsterdam in a few short weeks, and especially who is in the Paris Speech Masters Winner's Circle!!

Albena gave a very good speech in the French Humorous Contest while Sean competed in both the French Humorous and the French Table Topics.
Thank you to those of you who came yesterday to support us as it was a great comfort to see familiar faces among the 100 Toastmasters and guests.
Join me in giving our encouragement and support to Carol and to Juan-Pablo as they prepare for Amsterdam. I would like both to reach out to us so that they can get feedback and any help needed to improve their speeches.
I know a number of members have signed up to attend the conference so they will have vocal supporters in the audience!
We are truly putting our motto into practice where Good Speakers Become Great.
See you in Amsterdam!
