On Dec. 30, the Rumsey Rowley Beef Club had a full day of work and fun. Due to the cold weather earlier on in December our meeting and Christmas party was cancelled. We had our regular monthly meeting, followed by a diaries workshop. Good job, Rachel! Plus, thanks to the members who brought in donations for the food bank. After lunch, we had a fun afternoon of curling and skating, thanks to that parents who prepared the lunch, it was fantastic, and to the community for allowing us to use both the curling and skating rinks. Our next regular meeting was on Jan. 4, when we had an excellent public speaking workshop from Mary-Anne Jenson. The workshop covered the steps on making a speech and a couple of tips on making your speech enjoyable to listen to. Thank you Mary-Anne, for coming and doing a great workshop. After our workshop we had our monthly meeting, we discussed our club level public speaking event on Feb. 22, at the Rumsey Hall. We will have 27 speakers, one full night.
