Foundation 51 Annual Community Adult Spelling Bee
@ Toddy Brook, North Yarmouth
This isn't your old school spelling bee! No standing under the spotlight alone as you sweat over whether the "i" comes before the "e." Just like bees in a hive, we believe in teamwork and our Adult Spelling Bee is a friendly competition among teams of up to four people, vying for theRanger Bee Trophy while raising funds for education within our community. So go ahead, form a team and start brushing up on the dictionary.
Don't feel like competing? That's okay, you can sponsor an interested party -- perhaps a group of teachers, rescue workers, your book club, or neighbors. All adults within the Cumberland-North Yarmouth community are welcome to participate. Spectators are welcome too! We've infused this year's bee with some fun additions like trivia questions and a raffle. We almost forgot to mention costumes! Although not required, if you show up in costume, you'll be entered to win a door prize!
**We are welcoming all teachers and administrators within the district complimentary registration, so grab some colleagues, form a team and get ready for a fun night with some spelling, lots of laughs, and a chance at the Trophy!
