Talents to be revealed at ambassador event

Ladysmith Ambassadors are getting ready to lay it on the line.

The 13 young women involved in the program will take over the multi-purpose room at Ladysmith Secondary this week to show the town what they are made of for their speech and talent night.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show gets underway at 7 p.m. on March 30.

Kara Olson, one of the many people helping with the ambassador program, said while the girls have been attending several community events, this is the first time they will be graded by judges.

“There’s awards for top speech and top talent,” said Olson.

The awards and bursaries, will be awarded during the crowning ceremony on April 16 at the Frank Jameson Community Centre.

The speech and talent night provides local residents a chance to get to know and support our hopeful ambassadors.

“They are representing our community when they travel.”

Anyone wanting a sneak peek at the talents or speeches will just have to wait, Olson is not giving up anything.

“The speeches are on any topic of their choice and their talent is something they can choose,” said Olson.

“There’s a good arrangement.”

The candidates will be given two and a half to three minutes.”

Tickets will cost $10 at the door and refreshments will be available.
