What we completed in 2017 - 2018

Throughout the past year the Youth Services Committee has worked to ensure we are assisting the youth of our area wherever we can. We continued to offer many of the wonderful programs that the District offers, it was at times difficult to obtain the cooperation we required to ensure participants for each program but we we able to provide many opportunities for our young people.
 
Primary School Speech Contest
 
The Primary schools in our area are very supportive and were again very willing participants in the Primary School Speech Contest. Gloria and Vicki headed up the organisation of this event which was held at Selby Primary School on 24th October. The whole committee assisted on the evening along with many other club members and the outcome was a very successful event. Caitlyn Megarrell was the winner of this contest. Cailtlyn went on to compete in the final and did a great job but did not place.
