Don’t know if you’re aware of it but today at 1:00 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room we are hosting our annual Senior Spelling Bee.
What is it? Well, are you age 50 or older? Are you a resident of Illinois? Do you think you can spell? Here’s you chance to shine! Just register in person on the day of the event.
What do you win? Well, winners move up to the Regional competition on June 17 at the Levy Center. Regional winners compete on August 15 on Seniors’ Day at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield.
