Our next get together is Monday, January 25, at 6:30.
New cadets are welcome to join or just observe and gauge their interest. If I don’t already have your email address please send it to me Martin DeBarros at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our topic this week is “someone you’d like to meet.” Could be past, present or future tense, could be fictional character or a person of your imagination. Speech should be 3 minutes in length.
We will have a guest speaker, some of you know her, it’s Debbie Penley. She will give her insights into the cadet effective speaking program and will also help with evaluating the speeches of the evening.
Also, the wing speech competition is scheduled for March 8. It will be a virtual competition and the topics are available at www.aircadetleague.com
Even if you’re not interested in competing, I think it would be great for the entire team to at least prepare and deliver a speech. It’s a way to challenge yourself in a safe and respectful environment.
