On April 28, Ms. Kendra Willcott-Benoit of St. Alban’s represented the six Lions Clubs of the Coast of Bays region at the District N3 Lions Speak-off competition in Stephenville. Competing against four other speakers from Central and Western Newfoundland, Ms. Benoit spoke about polygamy and how it affects all people involved in these family environments, including the children.
Ms. Willcott-Benoit performed very well; however as a result of the stringent scoring in these competitions, she did not place in the top two. As Kendra is currently in Level 1, this experience will prepare her well for future speakout competitions.
The Lions Clubs of the Coast of Bays region wish Kendra well with her studies, thank her for representing them in Stephenville and look forward to seeing her compete again next year.
