On Wednesday, November 14th, 7pm, at the Sprague School Gym, the Wellesley Education Foundation will put on its 29th annual spelling contest and fundraising event. Catch the buzz along with 55 teams participating in the year’s Bee. Wellesley’s wordsmiths will work in teams of three to spell it all out, and Master of Ceremonies Mike Dowling, longtime WCVB-TV Sportscaster, will be on hand to spit the vocab.
Think it sounds easy? The winning words from the past three years were legerdemain (spelled by Wellesley College, 2017); unguligrade (spelled by Coldwell Banker, 2016); and threnody (spelled by Weston Health Advances, 2015).
Stop by and cheer on the teams. Admission, snacks, and a light dinner are free at the Bee, WEF’s largest fundraiser for the year.
Did I ever tell you about the time my team came in second place…oh, never mind.
