Terri Puckett has taken the helm as the new Chair of the District Oratorical Committee. She will be managing the District Oratorical Contest which is scheduled for Saturday, 12 January at Post 290 in Stafford.
Terri would like to keep track of your Post activities for Oratorical. Please take a moment to contact Terri and let her know when you are having your Post events. If you do not have the contact information for Terri, you can use the contact form on the district website (https://16dvalegion.org/contact-us/).
Posts who are submitting candidates should make sure they notify Terri of their Post winner and the Post POC information as soon as possible after the conclusion of your Post event. This will help the Oratorical Committee ensure you have all the proper information and they are prepared to support your contestant equally.
Please make sure your contestants plan to arrive no later than 0900. The contest will begin at 10:00 AM, and there is much that must be done before that time.
And don’t forget that Volunteers are needed to make this an awesome event. If you have members of your post with experience in this event, or even folks that just want to help, please have them contact Terri.
We look forward to an awesome event and hope that many Legionnaires from around the District will be able to attend.
