Trivia Night
Wordplay, our annual fundraising event, is canceled but we're not going to let a pandemic stop us from enjoying some healthy competition!
Join us on Friday, October 30 at 7 pm, and we'll provide the entertaining trivia. Form a team or play as an individual--it's all virtual, so your team can be scattered far and wide. Team scores are averaged together, and we are not limiting how many folks can be on a team.
Did we mention it's FREE? 
Yes, Zoom is involved so we can all be in the same virtual space, but you'll be playing separately through your phone or tablet.
Click here to register. We need to set up teams in advance, and we're trying to get an estimate on how many folks plan to attend. Details will be provided after registration.
Contact Heather if you have any questions or concerns.
