Trivia Champions

Posted on Updated on

Friday the 13th proved lucky for a group of CFUW members and the club. At the invitation of member, Jo-Anne Twamley, they attended the first Kiwanis Club Trivia Night fundraiser. Lynn Becker, Penny Hendricks, Sandi Repic and Jane Taylor were joined by Gary Magwood, Stephen Repic and Mike Taylor to form the Table 10 (CFUW) team.

By combining their knowledge and expertise in a variety of topics, the team was successful in claiming the first place prize as well as having lots of laughs along the way.

The prize of $300 will be donated to our scholarship fund.
