Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our community, Blue Ridge Literacy will be postponing our 15th Annual Scrabble Tournament to a later date.  This decision is made with consideration of safety measures taken by our community as well as St. John's Episcopal Church's containment strategises for events scheduled on their premises.

We are monitoring the situation closely and will continue to adhere to the guidelines set forth by the City of Roanoke and the Virginia Department of Health in order to maintain the health and safety of others as our nation deals with COVID-19.  We look forward to having you join us at BRL's 15th Annual Scrabble Tournament once the safety of our community is assured.

Until then, we wish you the best of health.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at info@brlit.org.
