9th Annual Scrabble "Blitz" Tournament
October 12 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

This is NOT your mother’s snoozy SCRABBLE game! Come enjoy a lively evening of competitive wordplay, meet some great people and help fight poverty in your community. Play competitively or "just for fun." Businesses, senior citizens, students, individuals are all welcome to come in pairs and take up the challenge! (If necessary, individuals will be paired by Love INC to create teams of two).

All competitors sit side-by-side with their team partner. The 2-player team works together on their own board to create the most clever, highest-scoring words possible in 20 minutes! All participants follow official SCRABBLE game rules. For competitive play teams, Love INC Scorekeepers carefully tally scores and vigilantly watch for misspelled or invalid words. The team with the highest accumulated score for three 20-minute rounds of play will be crowned Tournament Champion!

Between rounds, contestants will enjoy complimentary
hors d’oeurves, desserts and beverages and try their luck at winning exciting raffle items. All competitors must be pre-registered.

Worship Respite Care The Gathering Place

The Worship Respite Care program was developed at The Gathering Place in response to the wishes of caregivers of loved ones suffering from Alzheimer's and other dementia-related diseases who longed to return to their respective houses of worship while being reassured that their loved ones were being compassionately cared for during the timeframe of traditional religious services on weekends.

Through the generosity and partnership of The Lutheran Care Center and The Lutheran Care Network, the venue for The Gathering Place will be in the professionally designed, modern, climate controlled Adult Care/Extended Family center at The Lutheran Care Center at Concord Village located at: 965 Dutchess Turnpike Poughkeepsie, NY 12603  For detailed brochure:  Worship Respite Care Brochure
