An innocuous enough question (“Where are the highest tides in the world recorded?”) launched the second annual Trivia Night at Trinity United Church on October 4th.
Eighty-three more questions and 16 visual identifications – along with a lot of huddled brainstorming – and Table 4 was able to claim victory with a total of 64 correct answers!
It was an excellent evening, attended by more than 100 people, with fabulous door prizes, a 50-50 draw and three tables brimming with silent auction treasures.
After expenses, about $3000 can be added to the restoration fund, a sum that will contribute to the cost of a new, heritage-approved roof. With work scheduled for November, the Friends of Beaverdams Church will to be able to look back at 2014 as a year of successes and great strides forward!
Many thanks to the tireless efforts of the Trivia Night helpers: Adam Barker, Emma Battell Lowman, Denise Bradden, Dave Cowan, Leslie Daniels, Susan France, Marilyn Fraser, Julien Gingras, David Griffiths, Sarah King Head, Cathy Ker, Eileen Spencer, Jamie Symons, Lil Sypes, Teresa Tepylo and Jack Yarnell.
Melanie Battell and Donna Cowan held it all together, while Margie Hadley can again be credited for developing another batch of excellent questions! And, thanks to the inimitable emceeing of Bill Vander Klippe, to the markers Farley Hadley, Lynn Hadley and Joe Dekker hidden behind the screen, and to the energetic runners, Dakotah, Evan and Caroline.
