Some members of our club participated in Spelling Bee, an organization that uses the funds to run community literacy programs such as Mother Goose, the Bright Red Book Bus and one-to-one tutoring for children and adults. The donations collected go toward Literacy in Kamloops and are then matched by the provincial government.

For more information on the spelling bee and on Literacy in Kamloops, go online to literacyinkamloops.weebly.com.

This year there is also an opportunity to participate in the virtual trivia night that will take place on Sept. 22 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Teams of two to six players can enter online at decoda.ca. To play, each of a team's players must choose a community and make a donation. They will then receive an email with a Zoom video conference link and password.
