River Falls Public Library hosts first ever spelling bee
Valence. Popinjay. Veracious. Truculent.
These are just a few of the words that contestants at the first ever Spring Break Adult Spelling Bee attempted at 6 p.m. on March 16 in the lower level of the River Falls Public Library.
The event was free and open to the public and featured four contestants.
Heather Johnson, the Adult Services and Circulation Librarian at the library, said that she was "nervous" about running the spelling bee. Johnson said she hadn't been a part of a spelling bee since she was in grade school.
Eugene Meuwissen won the competition by spelling emulous in the final round, taking home the trophy.
