Are you a good public speaker or would you like to give it a try?  Lions Club Speaking Contest is February 7, 2019. The subject is “Freedom of the Press…what does it mean?” Come to the ASB office to sign up to participate.  Only 4 spots are currently available, so sign up ASAP.  All participants will get a small cash reward. The winner will get $100 and advance to the next level of the contest (usually in Ripon).  This is open to all students (grades 9-12). The first round of the contest is in Escalon in the evening. Dinner will be provided to winners and two of their guests at a local restaurant (usually D’bonis).
