The Bronte Lighthouse Restaurant in Bronte Harbour was the scene for the social occasion of the year with 100 Toastmasters and guests in attendance. President Linda Rossi and her team created a perfect evening of ceremony, contesting, great dining and dancing.
Of course the highlight of the evening was the International Speech contest. Chairperson Marion West and Contest Chief Judge Elaine Collins had our four contestants Kim Bayley, Valerie Clements, Sharon Jenkins and John Smissen up and speaking in good order. When the results came in (in what many said was a very close contest among the four contenders) it was Sharon Jenkins who took first place and will represent First Oakville at the Area contest.
That’s Sharon (left) with the contest chair Marion West.
