Scrabble Group Meets for the First Time!

The Scrabble Group met for the first time at the library on Saturday, May 19th. Memorable moments from the games included a 68-point word (rations) using all seven tiles, a high score of 209 total points for a match (4 players), and the appearance of a slew of other interesting words: borage, bivalve, etc...

We will be holding future meetings on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month. So keep June 2nd (10am-12pm) on your calendar free and join us for the next Scrabble Group meeting. Please bring a scrabble board with you if you own one.

Refreshments will be served and all ages and skill levels are invited to attend!
