KEF Bodacious Spelling Bee a huge hit! Wicked Good Team wins with the word C O O L L Y.

Congratulations to the winners, the losers, the participants, the pronouncers, the judges, the food people, the audience and all involved in organizing and sponsoring a very successful event last Friday night at the VFW Hall in Bristol. The Kickemuit Education Foundation (KEF) Spelling Bee Winners were: 
The Wicked Good Team:  Christy Nadalin (captain), Karen Binder and Fred Orwiler (in red shirts above)
Runners up were the Olde China Traders /OCT Wannabees: Marie Byrnes (captain), Chris Byrnes and Anne Byrnes Baily (in yellow shirts above)
To quote from the KEF website: "We are very grateful for this great demonstration of community spirit and support. With teams representing local businesses, community groups, Town leadership, and neighborhoods, we had a great competitive Bee right to the end."
Funds raised from the festivities will support the KEF Enrichment Grants for Education Excellence in the Bristol Warren public schools. This event was filmed by Mike Davis Media and will be on local channels on Full Channel and Cox TV at a future date. Not to be missed!
