The Melon’s Jack “Joe” Faust, interviews Tacoma Community House’s Hana Kato and Derrick Rhayn about the community event that is taking Tacoma by storm: Scrabble Rousers.
Brush up on your two letter words because Scrabble Rousers: Season Deux is on its way.
TCH presents Scrabble Rousers: Season Deux, an amazing line up of nontraditional and themed Scrabble tournaments for players of all levels to gather together and celebrate words. Through community
partnerships with King’s Books, University of Puget Sound (UPS) Office of Community Engagement, and Click! Cable TV, TCH is offering Scrabble Rousers monthly from February to September throughout the Tacoma. Each
tournament will have an individual theme like Mardi Gras, Alfred Hitchcock Day, Bad Poetry Day and the ever popular International Talk like a Pirate Day. Prizes and bragging rights will be available for the winners.
TCH has been an advocate for education and words since Jan. 10, 1910. Scrabble Rousers is one of the ways TCH honors and celebrates 100 years of service to the community. All Scrabble Rouser proceeds benefit Tacoma Community House’s Student Scholarship Fund, a student run committee that helps students transition from TCH to other educational institutions and programs.
