The annual BEE for Literacy, a luncheon and adult spelling bee to benefit the East Texas Literacy Council (ETLC), will be held at 11:30 a.m. on June 5 at the Pine Tree Junior High School cafeteria.
Various businesses, churches and civic organizations field teams of three people each to participate in the BEE, with other members of those groups coming out to cheer them on. The Rotary Club of Longview will be defending its three-time championship, said Jennifer Slade, executive director of ETLC.
Tickets are $15 and are available at ETLC, Barron’s Books and local branches of Texas Bank and Trust.
