The first speaker was club member Dennis Viehweg. Dennis spoke about his volunteerism with the Litchfield community Christmas Basket program. He has helped with this organization for many years, and spoke about how rewarding it has been to have done so.
The second speaker was Chandan Bhagwat who delivered an informative speech about "Attracting New Members". Chandan's was a PowerPoint Presentation from the Successful Club Series.
Martha Ruppert was in charge of the impromptu speaking part of the program. Each of 5 club members chosen had 2 minutes to speak on a different topic. This made for some interesting responses.
