Spelling bee Friday in Port

  • Feb. 2, 2005 9:00 a.m.

Get your study caps on – it’s almost time for the first-ever all islands Spelling Bee!
The Bee will be happening this Friday night (Feb. 4) at the Port Clements community hall, starting at 7 pm.
The adult competition is open to anyone on the islands for a $5 entry fee. The top adult speller will go home with a $100 cash first prize, donated by the Observer. Please call the school to register at 557-4333, or sign up at the hall on Friday night.
The school’s parent advisory committee will be selling desserts and coffee. Everyone is warmly welcomed to either take part or sit back and watch what we hope will be a very entertaining evening. See you there!
