Local state representatives crown winner of spelling bee for seniors
CICERO – A local state legislator recently welcomed a new colleague by co-hosting an event for senior citizens.
State Rep. Lisa Hernandez, D-24th District, of Cicero partnered with state Rep. Silvana Tabares, D-21st District, of Chicago to hold a spelling bee for seniors May 13. Tabares was sworn into office in January. Her district covers the Brighton Park and Little Village neighborhoods in Chicago as well as Lyons, Stickney and Summit.
"There were seven people who participated in the spelling bee, and 54 people attended the event," said Alaina Hampton, a legislative aide for Tabares. "It was just a friendly competition for seniors. It was a way for them to meet and become friends with other seniors."
