District 15 had their District Oratorical Contest on 1/29 at Post 5 in Tampa. The contest was MC’d by Frank Smith from Post 5. Contestant Connor Stonesifer from Post 147 oration was titled “THE CONSCIENCE OF THE CONSTITUTION”. It was a fine speech. Contestant 2 was Tyler Tipton representing Post 148. The winner is Connor. He will go on to the Central Area Contest representing District 15 Commanded by Jim Zipler Oratorical Chairman Larry Patterson.
The contest had a very touching moment with the posting and retrieving of the Colors being done by the special youth from Post 5. This was very moving to see them participating as part of the Legion Family. (Photo is of the winner Connor Stonesifer, courtesy of Bobbie Luce Unit 118.)
