T Jai McFall Check Us Out Online he Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce will host the “1st Annual Spelling Bee” at the Centre located at 1500 16th Street in Palm Harbor on August 23rd from 6-9pm. This is an adult only fundraiser that will benefit the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Inc., which provides financial assistance in support of area school programs and student educational endeavors. The Chamber is looking for teams to participate in the Spelling Bee, so choose a team name, theme and team colors. Each team will consist of four team members and teams are invited to dress up to complete their theme if they wish. There will be prizes for best costume, best theme and best spellers. A light dinner is included in the entry fee and will be served before the event at 5:15pm. The rules for the spelling bee are simple and the “Queen Bee” will moderate the competition. Words will be chosen from “Scripps Howard” and will get increasingly more difficult throughout the competition. Each team will have a limited time period to discuss the correct spelling and the captain will write down the final answer and hold it up for all to see. The format is designed to engage everyone attending the event, including the audience, as there are a few unique rules and surprises. So, join in the fun and at the same time help to support education. It is time to “Bee Brilliant...Bee Supportive...Bee Involved” in your community. For more information visit or call the Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce office at (727) 784-4287. ◆ Spelling Bee Words chosen from Scripps Howard BEE BRILLIANT...BEE SUPPORTIVE...BEE INVOLVED Get A Free Rays Ticket! Summer Fun T he Pinellas Public Library Cooperative (PPLC) has teamed up with the Tampa Bay Rays for the countywide “Reading with the Rays” summer reading program. The program kicked off in June with special guest Rays 3rd Baseman, Evan Longoria speaking about the importance of reading and sharing two special books with the children in attendance. The program includes opportunities for kids to round the bases on a game card and win great prizes like a Rays souvenir poster, gel bracelet and signature Evan Longoria arm sleeve. Once kids have read for 24 hours and make it to Home Plate, they will be eligible to receive a reading certificate and one free ticket to a Rays home game. (Up to three additional tickets may be purchased at a discounted rate.) Families can pick up their “Reading with the Rays: Read Your Way to the Ballpark” game cards at any PPLC library. The PPLC and the Rays Baseball Foundation, the official charity of the Tampa Bay Rays, are promoting this program designed to emphasize the importance of continued literacy throughout the summer months. Stop by your local library and pick up a game card and “Read Your Way to the Ballpark” this summer.
