Here, thanks to Friends WordSmith Amelia Slawsby, is our official press release for the local news. Hope to see you on the 26th!

Spring is just around the corner and as the flowers start to emerge, so do the bees. In Dover, this means a special kind of bee – a Spelling Bee.The 4th Annual Dover Library Spelling Bee will be held on Thursday, March 26, at 7 p.m. at the Dover Town House. A friendly contest for adults who compete in teams of three, the Spelling Bee has become one of the town’s must-attend Spring events for all ages. It is free and all are invited to attend.

In addition to the Bee itself, which will be in the Main Hall, upstairs will also house the popular Bee Tree, where mystery items are bought based on a word clue. This year, the Friends of the Library has secured numerous high-end donations to the Bee Tree.

Donated items include:·

Tickets or passes for: the Big Apple Circus, Davis Farmland and Mega Maze, Boston Duck Tours, the New England Aquarium, the Pawtucket Red Sox, Santa’s Village, Six Flags New England, Story Land, the Wheelock Family Theater and Zoo New England.·
