Board President Sharon Mansfield, event chairperson Bernadette Graziosa, and the Board of Directors of Literacy Volunteers of Greater Waterbury invite local Scrabble® enthusiasts to team up for this year’s popular competition at a new location. Join the fun on Wednesday November 14 at 5:30 pm at Chase Collegiate School, St. Margaret’s Hall, 565 Chase Parkway, Waterbury. The evening will include a light supper, teacup auction, plus coffee and dessert.
Each team will receive a Scrabble® game to use during the competition. Master of Ceremonies Larry Rifkin of WATR-1320AM will reveal a mystery word at the start of play and teams will have 30 minutes to work together to achieve the highest score in the main round. There will also be a 15-minute bonus round. Trophies and prizes will be awarded to the winners.
Scrabble® game rules apply, but cheating is allowed and encouraged…for a price…dictionary peeks and extra letter tiles are available for purchase. Event sponsors are the Naugatuck Savings Bank Foundation and Chase Collegiate School. Visit www. Lvgwct.org to register.
Proceeds will benefit the educational programs of Literacy Volunteers of Greater Waterbury, a non-profit organization that teaches local adults to read, write, speak, and understand English through the dedication of trained volunteer tutors.
