    The Blade's 29th Annual Corporate & Community Spelling Bee is Coming!

    For nearly 30 years, Read For Literacy has been a leading advocate in Lucas, Wood, and Seneca Counties. When you support Read for Literacy, you give the most powerful gift of all – the ability to read! Join us on October 27 for this fun event and help children, adults, and families in our community gain the literacy skills they need to do well in school, get better jobs, and succeed. This is a spelling be like no other – Laughter is encouraged! Words aren’t spelled aloud! Work as a team! And most of all, we want you to have fun! Register before August 26 for a Free Spell Check in Rounds 1-2-3. Registration deadline: September 9, 2016. For more information and to register click the B image.
