Spelling Bee Update

The Mary Lyon Foundation Community Spelling Bee began with a song last night and ended with three triumphant notes.

Mohawk Select Chorus performs "The Storm is Passing Over."

After the judges' opening remarks, Mohawk's Select Chorus unexpectedly jumped up on the small stage in the rear of the auditorium and sang "The Storm is Passing Over", much to the delight of the crowd.


The Grand Championship Round ended when the word succedaneum was successfully spelled by The Three Bees: "Sometimes Be Sharp, Never Be Flat, and Always Be Natural".

The Merry Lion congratulates The Three Bees "Sometimes Be Sharp, Never Be Flat, and Always Be Natural", representing Mohawk Trail Concerts, sponsored by Slowinski Wood Products. John Clark, Cornelia Read, Amy Metzler-Clough. Photo credit Mary Lyon Foundation.
