SARANAC LAKE- The Ninth Annual North Country Spelling Bee is scheduled to take place at the Harrietstown Town Hall in Saranac Lake on Saturday, May 7.
Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the spelling bee begins at 10 a.m. Everyone is invited to join in the fun. Children 12 years old or younger must be teamed up with an adult.
Created and organized by Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties, this event will generate proceeds through team sponsorships ($50 each, tax deductible) to fund free educational programs for adults, children, and families.
The more teams that compete, the more fun the spellers have. If some teams need help finding sponsors, Literacy Volunteers can match them up.
Admittance is free and there will be a complimentary luncheon for all players. Those who want to be a speller (or to sponsor other spellers) may call Literacy Volunteers at Saranac Lake, 891-5567; Port Henry, 546-3008; or Malone, 483-9366.
