The Fourth Annual Grown-up Spelling Bee was held in the Seguin Event Center (Coliseum) Thursday and is one of the coolest and most fun events in Seguin.  If you missed it, plan to attend next year.

The Zonta Club of Seguin is a member of Zonta International, a global organization of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy.

Zonta members volunteer their time, talents and money to local and international projects as well as scholarship and award programs aimed at furthering women’s education, leadership and youth development.

The fund-raising money goes to:

Seguin MHMR

Relay for Life

Ball Elementary School

Guadalupe County Children’s Advocacy Center

Canyon Lake Treatment Center

The Lodge

Seguin Little League

In addition, Zonta offers Scholarships to local Z club members in Seguin nd Navarro High Schools & Memorial Scholarships to non-traditional women students.

They also provide assistance with hands on service to:

Clean Seguin

Christian Cupboard

Family Violence Shelter

Shoes for Orphan Souls

Empty Bowl Event-Local Food Pantries

New Life Children’s Residential Treatment Center

Not only is the Spelling Bee great fun, the proceeds go to worthwhile projects in our community.

“The Chain Gang”  (above) was a team of spellers sponsored by the Koehler Company.

There were eight teams, composed of three spellers, and all eight teams provided great entertainment!

  1. I have read about this event. It sounds like fun! Makes me think of the town-wide spelling bee in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little Town on the Prairie.
