To the Times of Ti:
On Saturday, April 28, Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties held its 10th annual Spelling Bee at Harrietstown Town Hall in Saranac Lake. Eleanor Sweeney and Kama Prellwitz claimed first place, followed by Melina Mathers and Stephen King. Kathy Merritt and Evelyn Outcalt took third place.
A big thanks to Harrietstown Town Hall for providing the space for the event and to our judges, Bonnie Birk and Robert Schiller. We would also like to thank our pronouncers, Karen Butters and Linda Warner, and our Master of Ceremonies Cheryl Schiller, Sandy Woods our score keeper, and Darlene Spinner who ran the kitchen.
