All In Block Party

File Mar 23, 10 56 09 AM

The #All_IN_EVV Block Party is a community-wide event where people of all ages complete a series of fun and thought-provoking challenges that…

Picture an area full of Hoosiers thinking, talking, sharing and doing things that take them just slightly out of their comfort zone.They are having fun, they’re meeting new people and they are learning about Indiana and our community.

Participants will circulate to booths run by different community organizations like …

WNIN, Willard Library, United Neighborhood Association, Wesselman Woods, Barnes & Noble, Ivy Tech Community College, Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library, Interfaith Committee, TSCCA Chinese School, Soldier Dogs for Independence and of course, The Literacy Center. At each booth participants will complete an activity/challenge to complete their scorecard, then turn the scorecard in to win prizes.

The goal of the event is to learn and engage our community and to celebrate the Literacy Center’s fifty years of service to the community.

That is what the #All_IN_Evv Block Party will be all about.  We think it will be a great way to celebrate fifty years of proving service to our community.

Save the Date- SCRABBLE Tournament

scrabblesmackdownIt’s time for a SCRABBLE® Smackdown!

 On Saturday, February 27, 2016, The Literacy Center will host the 13th Annual SCRABBLE® Smackdown (formerly, Letters for Literacy SCRABBLE® Tournament) at Ivy Tech Community College from 1-4 pm. Join us as teams of competitors fight it out in a war of words to reach the highest SCRABBLE® score. This year, we are excited to introduce new divisions of competition; Teams can choose their division based on their level of skill, competitive drive, or desire to strategize and bend the rules, for a maximum amount of fun and bragging rights for all. A division particularly devoted to high school and college students has also been added. Competition continues between SCRABBLE® rounds as participants and spectators bid for great items in the silent auction.

We would love for you to be a part of our event! Whether you put together a team of competitive word nerds, become an event sponsor, or donate an item to our auction, your contribution will make a difference in our community.

Your sponsorship, auction donation, or participation in our event is greatly appreciated and allows our organization to continue to have a positive impact on lives in our community.

We have provided over 1800 instructional hours this year to your neighbors, will you please make a donation to help the Literacy Center provide more help to your neighbors and community?
