Good Talk/Speech

At the recent Northeast Regional Volunteer Forum I attended we had a speaker that was creative. He spoke of the origins of the Cooperative Extention which is the basis of 4-H in America.

 As he related the facts beginning with Abraham Lincoln 
through the present 
he drew in charcoal the corresponding images. The paper spanned the dividing wall between the banquet halls we used.
It was inspiring to some of us who didn't know the history.
He dressed the part and held our attention for over an hour. Sorry I don't remember his name and I've lost the paper program where it was listed. I do think he was from New York. 
Creativity at its finest.

  1. For a speaker to hold the audience's attention for over an hour . . . well, he must have been good!
