CONGRATULATIONS TO ROTARY 4-WAY TESTERS, a team from the Rotary Club, La Plata.  Fourteen teams competed at Saturday's (January 11) Adult Team Spelling Bee. In the final round spelling correctly the word  "zucchetto" (a Roman Catholic cleric's skullcap: black for a priest, purple for a bishop, red for a cardinal, and white for the Pope), Rotary 4 Way Testers became the 2020 SPELLING BEE GRAND CHAMPIONS!  Congratulations to them and to all the teams for a great and fun competition and to all the guests for coming out and cheering on the teams and supporting the Charles County Literacy Council. It was a fun night!
