Upcoming Rotary Mid-Isle spelling Bee gets a helping hand from TelEm Group

T-e-l-E-m. G-r-o-u-p. spells a grateful thank you from the Rotary Mid-Isle group during a recent check presentation at the TelEm Group Main Building on Pond Island.

TelEm Group donated an undisclosed amount towards Rotary’s upcoming Spelling Bee for schools which will be held at the Belair Community Center during the month of October.
According to Rotary Mid-Isle past president, Louis Wever, various stages of the Spelling Bee will be held at the Belair Community Center starting with the Preliminary Round on October 4th, the Semi-finals on October 11th and the grand final in front of an excited audience on October 18th.
He said past events have been held at the American University of the Caribbean (AUC) in Cupecoy, however, due to the distance of this location, fewer spectators attended each year than expected.
“We have chosen a more central and accessible location at the Belair Community Center and we therefore expect a large turnout to support the efforts of the various schools that are competing in this year’s spelling bee,” said Mr. Wever.
He thanked TelEm Group on behalf of the service club for the kind donation, promising that it will go a long way towards making the annual event another smashing and educational activity in the service club’s year of activities.
The presentation was made by Manager Marketing & Sales, Mr. Emile van der Weerd on behalf of TelEm Group management and staff.
He also spelled out his own hopes for the youngsters and organizers staging the Spelling Bee, saying, “much – S-U-C-C-E-S-S.”
