Grace will once again participate in the annual Gainesville/Hall County Alliance for Literacy Spelling Bee. This year’s team, the Godspellers, consists of Amy Bussler, Rob Harris, Jack Park, and Nancy Richardson.
The “bee” is like no other, billing itself as a “Great Grown-Up, Good Time, Romp of a Spelling Bee!” It is a fast-paced event, with local teams, exciting skits and jokes, door prizes, as well as some serious competition among teams.
