Gelfand member Anita Fain Taylor will move to the Division A round of the International Speech contest, after taking the Area 12  title on February 16.

Anita also took second place in the Table Topics contest held on the same day.

Gelfand hosted both contests at Picadilly, and Toastmasters from five Area 12 clubs packed the meeting room to watch their best speakers perform. The competition was intense, with all speakers performing impressively.
