The Friends of the Edison Public Library is sponsoring its 2014 Spelling Bee on Saturday, May 10 at JP Stevens High School at 855 Grove Avenue (map). We have 200 enthusiastic Edison students in grades two through five who are participating in two divisions. For us to sponsor this most successful spelling bee we need dozens of helpers.
Can you volunteer to help us before or during the bee? We need volunteers on May 10th to help with registration, to guide parents, to pass out programs, to assist with food for the volunteers and to assume other responsibilities. A more detailed outline of tasks can be found here.
Please contact our Vice-President Pam at email@example.com or 908-769-6420 to offer your support and participation. Check out the Friends’ website, www.FOLEdisonnj.org for more details about membership and the spelling bee.
The Friends of the Edison Public Library provides numerous services and makes contributions to the Edison Library, which are made possible by your generous support. It is part of the Friends’ mission to contribute as much as we can to the Edison Library’s three branches. Municipal and state funds have diminished and the Edison Library needs our support.
In the past many of you have helped the Friends with the funding of programs, newsletters, and items such as iPads and volunteered at the fall book sales and spring spelling bees in 2011 and 2012. We can accomplish very little without your help and appreciate all that you have done.
