This is our annual speech contest which is one of the ways Exchange recognizes and honors not only our Youth, but also supports our Americanism program of service.
Three schools will be participating in our annual Speech Contest – Armuchee, Pepperell and Rome High. Students will be delivering a 5-8 minute speech with a Patriotism or Americanism theme. The student will be asked a question relating to their speech at the end by our judges who will also score the student. The winner and the other students will receive cash awards.
Menu: Sliced turkey, Ham, Sweet potato soufflé, Collard greens, Mac and cheese, Salad, Rolls, Strawberry cobbler
Our program last week was presented by Jeff & Mary Margret Mauer, co-founders of Restoration Rome. This organization’s primary focus is to provide support and services to those people who step forward to foster children who have been removed from their natural parents. Rome has a real shortage of foster families, resulting in many children from this area being fostered in other areas or housed in state run organizations.

The Rome Exchange Club endeavors to provide interesting and important programs each week that support our Programs of Service – Youth, Americanism, and Community Service, and of course, the Prevention of Child Abuse.
