May 5 Literacy Council Spelling Bee and Silent Auction Postponed

Given the uncertain duration of current crowd size restrictions to prevent coronavirus progression, the 31st annual Literacy Council Spelling Bee will not take place May 5 as scheduled. We plan to reschedule the event for later this year and will announce a new date as soon as possible.

The Spelling Bee is a long-standing Brunswick Literacy Council tradition. It is also a primary source of funds used to purchase materials needed to support our mission to help adult learners improve their literacy skills and life opportunities. 

We are grateful for the generous support from spelling teams and their sponsors, from silent auction donors, bidders, and volunteers, and from everyone who has attended and cheered us on over the years. Let’s all be optimistic that we can announce a new date for the Spelling Bee and Silent Auction soon.

In the meantime, please keep the council and the students who rely on the help you make possible in mind as we all do our best to carry on during these unforeseen circumstances.  Donations are more important than ever right now, and we are counting on your continued support. Thank you.
