Bolton Spelling Bee approaching
The Bolton Community Spelling Bee, the library fundraiser that made an impressive debut last year, is coming up on Sunday, Nov. 6 at Bolton Central School.
More than 200 people attended last year for the bee which featured a lot of hilarity among spellers and spectators, and even more are expected for the 2011 edition.
In 2010, participating were teams representing various area businesses and organizations. Participants grappled with fifth-grade level words — prompting lots of laughter — as they raised money for the library.
The "Parade of Teams" starts at 1 p.m., followed by the fun and friendly quasi-competition. Jeff Strief from Happy Jacks is serving as emcee, and “Dame Edna” will be on board to "help" the teams as they vie for awards.
Spectators are encouraged to bring cash, as the judges can be bribed. All donations go to the Bolton Library.
Three major raffles will be conducted during the bee, and the audience is of course urged to participate.
Light refreshments will be available, and local high school students will be providing activities for the younger children.
To donate a prize or set up a sponsorship, call Megan at 644-2233 for details.
