South Lancaster Speakers Club offers diverse public speaking education and training opportunities.
Tall Tale Competition Winner Jane Entwistle
The South Lancaster Speakers Club newest member, Jane Entwhistle, won the SLSC's Tall Tale competition on her first speech. Jane will now represent the club in the regional Tall Tale contest.
Jane wanted an assurance from the audience that what she was about to say would not get back to her employer! In her work as a Civil Engineer, she had been sent to Grimsby to carry out a survey on a dangerous building – an Ice House Factory. Regretfully Jane was involved in several incidents one of which involved her falling down a set of stairs and ending up in deep, dark water which she had great difficulty getting out of. Jane described how she was knocked unconscious in another separate incident. Certainly a tale of woe!
Congratulations and well done Jane.
Diane Douglas came second and James Douglas third.
David Knox, the SLSC President, thanked all the members for the high standard of the presentations and for making the evening so enjoyable.
