The following is from a press release issued by Representative Kay Hatcher:
The buzz has begun about this spring’s Senior Spelling Bee, hosted by State Representative Kay Hatcher. This year’s Bee will on Friday, April 26 at the Oswego Senior Center.
“Each year I host an event so mature adults in our area can show off their ‘spelling smarts’ and each year it gets more competitive and more fun,” said Hatcher. “We move the event throughout the district. Two years ago we were in Yorkville and last year we were in Sugar Grove. I’m hoping to find a great spot in Elburn next year.”

Hatcher said the local Senior Spelling Bee is open to everyone 50 and better. The event will begin with a 1 p.m. check-in at the Oswego Senior Center, located at 156 E. Washington Street. Those wishing to participate are asked to pre-register with her office by April 19.
“This is one of my favorite events because the participants have such a great time; some even bring their own cheering sections. And the two top spellers will go on to compete in the regional competition,” Hatcher added.
A list of some, but not all of the words contestants will be asked to spell will be posted on Representative Hatcher’s constituent website www.hatcher.ilhousegop.org.
