Since its inception, the Bee has attracted large numbers of residents, both as participants and spectators. According to co-Chairs of this year’s Spelling Bee, Diane Abrams and Louise Cohen, “Everyone loves a spelling bee! Over the past few years the Friends of the Larchmont Library Spelling Bee has become one of the Friends’ signature events of the Spring. In April 2017, we hosted twenty-one adult teams and two teen teams, with more than 200 enthusiastic attendees cheering them on! We hope that everyone will join in the afternoon fun on April 15th, beginning with our popular refreshment table at 3:30”. Abrams and Cohen further stated noted the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library’s mission is to help fund Larchmont Library programs and equipment not covered in the budget.
For the 2018 Bee, Lou Young, Larchmont resident and CBS-TV news personality, returns as the Master of Ceremonies. George Latimer, Westchester County Executive; Lorraine Walsh, Larchmont Mayor; and Nancy Seligson, Mamaroneck Town Supervisor will serve as Bee judges. Larchmont’s 6th Annual Spelling Bee is sponsored by Houlihan Lawrence and Ray Catena Lexus of Larchmont.
In 2017 the winning team was the “PC Bees” comprised of team members Stephen Land, Marjorie Lindblom and David Morse. The winning word was “Whippoorwill”.
