Clinton Spellathon was an overwhelming success

Editor,

The Friends of the Clinton Library want to thank the Whidbey Island community for supporting our Spellathon fundraiser. With the knowledge that virtually every nonprofit on the island will participate in fundraising each year, we truly appreciate our sponsors, contributors, volunteers and participants. The Spellathon was an overwhelming success both financially and as a community event. Businesses and island residents came together to support Clinton Library programming.

Thank you to our sponsors: Clinton Foodmart, Craven’s Insurance, Dalton Realty, the Don Nelson Family, The Inn at Langley, Jill Engstrom at Windemere Real Estate, Kirkland RV Sales, Matt’s Import Haven, Prima Bistro and Whidbey Island Bank for their financial support. Our silent auction included items donated by 30 businesses and individuals. A 50/50 raffle and cash donations received that night contributed to the success of the Spellathon.

Teams competed for best spellers, best costume and best team name. Like last year, there wasn’t an empty seat in the Clinton Community Hall. Tom Fisher as emcee and Robert Marsanyi on the piano kept the audience entertained. Volunteers from the Friends of the Clinton Library worked the event and we want to thank our board and President Nicole Midkiff for her dedication in bringing the Spellathon back for its second year. The money raised provides funds to the Clinton Library to increase programming for adults, children and families. Thank you to everyone involved!
