Spelling bee creates buzz in two counties

SARANAC LAKE The Sixth Annual North Country Spelling Bee is scheduled to take place at the Harrietstown Hall in Saranac Lake on Saturday, April 26. Everyone is invited to attent this event. Local businesses and individuals sponsor one or more of the many two-person spelling teams that compete for first, second, and third place awards. These teams are made up of adults and students of any age. Created and organized by Literacy Volunteers of Essex and Franklin counties, this event will generate proceeds through sponsorships ($50 each, tax deductible) to fund free educational programs for adults, children, and families. Admittance is free as well as lunch for sponsors and team members. If you want to have fun as a speller or to sponsor other spellers, call Literacy Volunteers at Saranac Lake, 891-5567 or Mineville, 942-7607.
