'Spellebrate' team Scrabble event set for April 17
SPRINGFIELD Game and word lovers will be able to shake their tile bags and rack their brains at the "Spellebrate Family Fun" Scrabble game playing fundraiser slated to take place April 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Eastfield Mall Food Court. Teams will compete for prizes and fun.
The Scrabble event is being hosted by the Boston Road Business Association. The general public, families and businesses are welcome to sign up their teams to take part in the event or donate items for prizes.
Teams of two players are asked to pre-register at the Mall Services Desk in the Eastfield Mall Food Court. Players may also register a team at Webster Bank, 1355 Boston Rd. in Springfield. Ask for Cherie Mills when you arrive at the bank.
The cost to play is $20 per person if pre-registered, or $25 per person at the door.
Individual players are also welcome and will be paired with other players the day of the event.
Prizes will be awarded to the top two point scoring teams after a four-round tournament of play.
"This will be a great afternoon of family fun for all ages," said Boston Road Business Association committee member Jocelyn Walker.
This event which will benefit the holiday lighting displays which are mounted along Boston Road in the winter, is sponsored by Eastfield Mall and Turley Publications.
