“Scrabble® Fest is also a way to raise awareness of Literacy Volunteers and our efforts to combat the issue of illiteracy in Oswego County. Literacy Volunteers offers the opportunity for adult students to develop the literary skills and computer skills necessary for daily activities, gaining employment, and more,” explained Henderson.

Scrabble® Fest takes place from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Elks Lodge #271, 132 West 5th Street, Oswego. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and games will begin at 6:30 p.m. Teams of four will compete against each other with the top three teams awarded prizes.

He is deeply missed by us all and we wanted to honor him by officially naming the derby after him.”
“This year there will by prizes for the 22 top finishers as well as the last place duck, with a grand prize of $2,525,” said Zach Merry, event chair. “ There are also over fifty local raffle prizes to be won on the day of the event, and The Fabulous Ripcords will provide live entertainment all day!”
