Play Scrabble for literacy programs

The Campbell River Literacy Association is hosting its 7th annual Scrabble Fundraiser Saturday, March 5.

Players will enjoy three rounds of Scrabble. Players will be matched up with others of similar ability as much as possible. Snacks and beverages are provided for Scrabble players. Local businesses are generously supporting the event with the donation of prizes and food. Prizes will be awarded for areas such as top scores, random score, player bringing in the highest total in donations, and more.

The Campbell River Literacy Association is fundraising in support of their literacy programs. For over 14 years the Campbell River Literacy Association has been working hard to provide free programming such as Adult Literacy tutoring, Youth English as a Second Language tutoring, Computer literacy programming, Family Literacy, Aboriginal Family Literacy. They train volunteer tutors, who work one-on-one or in small groups with learners to improve literacy skills.

If you know someone who could benefit from improving their literacy skills contact the Campbell River Literacy Association at 250 923 1275.

The fundraiser will run from 1-4:30 p.m. in the Robron Centre’s library, 740 Robron Road. Pre-registration is required.

Registration packages may be picked up at the Robron Centre room number #A121A. Completed registrations must be received by Monday (Feb. 29).

More than 100 volunteer tutors work with the Literacy Association to provide one-on-one and small group tutoring for people working to improve their literacy skills.
