First Annual Spelling Bee a Success!

Foundation 51 would like to thank all who attended and helped make the first annual Community Spelling Bee a resounding success. Nearly 20 teams assembled to try their hands at spelling words such as “unsavory,” “tortuous,” “oogle,” and many more. As the number of teams was whittled down, the words became more challenging. Bill Green, creator, producer and host of WCSH’s popular television show, “Bill Green’s Maine” was emcee for the night, keeping everyone entertained and engaged.

When the final word was called and judged, The Minion Team, consisting of Greg Weissner, Scott Cybulski, and Kevin O’Sullivan, reigned champion of the Bee!

Thank you to all who attended and supported Foundation 51 in this event. We hope to see you all again next spring!
