News Flash:  Orono High School's Championship Speech and Debate Team is headed to national competition in just a few weeks.  They are onstage RIGHT NOW in a 24-hour Readathon, raising funds to help defray travel costs!  The show started at 6:00pm tonight (Friday) and goes until 6:00pm Saturday.  Stop in to hear a continuous stream of humorous and dramatic pieces, poetry, famous speeches, and stories, including:

10:00pm tonight: Team members present their competition pieces

11:00pm tonight:  Scary stories

9:00 - noon on Saturday:  children's stories

There's lots more to enjoy (including many repeat performances of competition pieces) and, when the students need to rest their voices, perhaps you might like to jump in and read a favorite poem or short story, too.  Don't forget to make a donation while you are there!
