Adult Spelling Bee to Contain No XXX Words

On Friday, April 11, Stormcloud Brewing Company and the Betsie Current newspaper present a spelling bee to raise money for a great cause: local education.

If you are a mature, brewery-going person with an orthographic bent, find yourself a partner and register to spell competitively by sending an email to stormy@stormcloudbrewing.com.

Your team’s entire $25 sign-up fee (payable at the door), plus 10% of the ‘Cloud’s sales during the event, go toward Frankfort–Elberta and Benzie Central high school student journalism and cultural arts programs. The bee will be emceed by Benzie Shores District Library’s assistant director, Stacy Pasche.

Fittingly, the evening will also serve as a launch party for the revived Betsie Current newspaper, edited by Jordan Bates and Jacob Wheeler, which will drop April 17. So dust off your Merriam-Webster and get ready to say it, spell it, and say it again from 8 to 10 on April 11.

Learn more about the bee here, on the Glen Arbor Sun website.

  1. Thanks! Should be a great evening.
