First meeting of 2014 opened with a positive and inspiring address by the club President heralded the beginning of the KeyForce’s exciting spring season.

same vein.  Followed by three remarkably vibrant Prepared Speeches evaluated superbly by seasoned members. Wrapped up with an excellent General
Evaluation. On the side, members were made aware of the membership renewal approaching quickly.
