This morning, fellow Optimist Dan Williams and members of his committee treated us to the annual Optimist Oratorical Contest at our breakfast meeting.  Wow!  We saw a ton of talent in the 5 contestants who each spoke for 5 to 6 minutes on this year’s challenging nation-wide theme, “Is there a fine line between optimism and reality?”  The students were extremely poised and well prepared … bringing school, religion, sports, friendships, quotes and a myriad of life experiences into their presentations.  “Well done” to these winners, their families and teachers for such a terrific job this year.

More photos by Rico, Jimmy and Gary are available for viewing at these two links:  Slideshow or Photos (with captions).
