The SPELLathon held at the Clinton Library on Oct. 1 was a community and financial success according to organizers. The adult spelling bee pitted teams against one another to test their spelling knowledge. The teams also amused the audience with their team names and costumes. Businesses and participants also donated generously to help improve the library’s programming.

The Braniacs — Paul Thompson, Marshall Goldberg and Dianna MacLeod — won best spellers and best costumes. Bill Hagopian, Karen Benson and John Sherman’s team won best team name.
