2nd Annual Foundation 51 Community Adult Spelling Bee
March 10th - 7PM at Toddy Brook


Anyone who participated in a spelling bee as a kid knows how thrilling a competition it can be. Well, there’s no reason why, as an adult, you can’t find yourself (with the help of teammates) in the spelling bee spotlight once again. That’s right—an adult spelling bee.


Last year's inaugural event was a great success; lots of fun had by all. Don't miss out this year! There will be complimentary sweets and a cash bar available.

Sign up today for our Adult Spelling Bee, benefiting Foundation 51! 
How it works: Participants of the Bee are teams of 4 people, there is no individual spelling. All teams spell words simultaneously in a series of rounds. Our special guest emcee, Kathleen Shannon will announce the word and the team members collaborate on the spelling of a word before writing down their answer on the slate provided. Teams have 25 seconds and then must display their answer. All teams will then show their slates simultaneously. Upon missing a word, the team will be eliminated. Teams that correctly spell the word continue on to following rounds.

Teams compete until the championship round which includes the last 2 remaining teams. The champions take home the Ranger Bee trophy to keep for their reigning year.

If you prefer not to spell but would like to participate, you may sponsor (pay the $35 per person registration fee) a team of teachers, local safety personnel, etc.
