Volunteers sought for new spelling bee
The Bolton Community Spelling Bee is now being planned, and all folks in the region are urged to save the date so they can join in the fun as participants, observers, or cheerleaders. The Bee will be held at 1 p.m. Nov. 14, in the Bolton Central School Gymnasium. This event is a fundraiser for the Bolton Free Library.
All residents and business owners are welcome to participate in this new and exciting event. Bee organizers are looking for as many teams as possible - each team is to include three to five spellers. There will be an entry fee of $40 a team, but businesses can collaborate on forming a team to create more of a challenge.
The event will be no more than three hours with elimination rounds to determine the best spellers in Bolton Landing. Awards will be given out for not only the best speller, but also for many other categories, such as Most Creative Speller, Favorite Team Mascot, Best Team Costumes, and the Outstanding Team Spirit. The awards ceremony following the Bee will include refreshments.
Each team will receive coaching from chosen high school students. For details, contact Megan Baker at 644-2233 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Emma Calautti at at 644-3128 or email@example.com.
