Members of the Sulphur Springs Rotary Club joined forces on Monday Morning, at Professional Land and
Title Company, as they made p-r-e-p-a-r-a-t-i-o-n-s for Thursday night's annual Rotary Spelling Bee.
Rotary Club Makes Ready for
Thursday's Annual Spelling Bee
by: Bobby McDonald
P-e-r-u-s-i-n-g the list of words for Thursday night's Spelling Bee, members found that they might could
spell a few of them, but some were going to be e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y difficult.
Sharpen your pencil and get out the dictionary! It's time for the Annual Rotary Club Spelling Bee and fundraiser on Thursday night, as top spellers study word lists and get prepared to "tackle" the rounds of this year's event.
"Take Me Out to the Ballgame…or Spelling Bee?" Will be the theme of this year's event. The Rotary Club is hoping to raise $15,000 to be donated to worthy community organizations and for scholarships to local high school students.
The Bee will be held on Thursday, March 8, at the SSHS cafeteria. The doors open at 5 p.m. for dinner and the spelling kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Dinner, which is included for the $10 admission fee, this year will consist of stadium food, such as hotdogs and hamburgers.
Putting on the s-q-u-e-e-z-e! Rotary Club President, Craig Robert's congratulates
Spelling Bee Chair, Markeda Fisher, for finding twelve teams to compete and
all the sponsors.
In addition to dinner and a great spelling competition, there are live and silent auctions during the event. Some of the live auction items include a quail hunt, two great tickets to a Rangers’ game, oil changes at Lone Star Dodge, and an autographed Nolan Ryan baseball.
This evening of family fun provides funds for the Rotary Club to distribute to worthy organizations in our community as well as deserving students in our county who will be attending college next year.
Tickets may be purchased in advance from a Rotarian or from Professional Land Title, 903-885-1586. Tickets may also be purchased at the door.
Audience and spelling teams will be vying for the spirit and costume awards. So, join the Rotarians for a fun night that will surely be a homerun for our community.
G-o-u-r-m-e-t food is what Rotary Club members were discussing with Sandi Wallace, as she will be
catering Thursday night's event, from her Plain and Fancy Sandwich Shoppe.
