Sign up for Oct 3 Scrabble Bee

If you know what sesquioxidizing* is, you need to sign up right away for the Fond du Lac Literacy Services Scrabble Bee on October 3.

But if you’re like 99.99 percent of humanity, you’re more interested in having a good time and perhaps doing a good deed. These, too, will be on order at the Scrabble Bee at the Fond du Lac Public Library.
