     Victory resounds for the champions the quick spelling Diocesan Divas in Northwest Indiana Literacy Coalition’s 29th spelling bee! These gals will be divvying up a $400 prize.
Hosted by Ameristar, the Adult Spelling Bee was a hit with 10 teams and a slew of books distributed to participants and passersby. Ameristar really stepped up to the “plate” with delicious and abundant food and drink.
