The American Legion of Montana
2017 District 4 Oratory Contest
Pictured in front of the Speech and Debate section of the CF High School's Trophy case is American Legion Freedom Post 72 Commander Michael Shepard and this year's Oratorical winner, Colin Norick. with his first place check. Colin won with his speech on the U.S. Constitution, and his assigned speech on the 10th Amendment. He is a repeat winner, as he had won in 2016 also. This allows him to advance to the District Oratorical in Polson for a possible American Legion Scholarship. The Post is able to do this with its various fundraising activities done in Columbia Falls. Next fundraiser is our 3rd Annual Spaghetti Feed on 25 March at the CF Fire Hall, 4 to 7 PM. Tickets will be available from any Post member, or contact the Commander. Monies raised will also assist CF students who decide to go to the Legion's Boys/Girls State at Carroll College, where they learn to create and use our form of government, activities that are promoted and protected by the local American Legion Post.
