Special to the Standard
The Friends of the Hope Library hosted a fun-filled, challenging 9th Annual Quiz Night at the Conference Centre Friday, Feb. 28. Nine tables were filled with enthusiastic contestants, rival teams, and much laughter.
Categories such as Spelling, Dinosaurs and Geology caused much head-scratching, whispered comments and flashes of potential answers on scratch paper. Deb Ireland, the Hope Library supervisor, had found some particularly demanding questions.
Participants enjoyed a free book and refreshments as well as an evening filled with much discussion and fun. Behind the scenes, hard-working volunteers staged a beautifully decorated room in library colours. Teams paid for the privilege of attending and also purchased tickets for a variety of donated prizes.
All funds raised go to enhance the Hope Library. In addition to the Annual Quiz Night, the Friends also host an annual November book sale. Over the years new tables, books and DVD’s, adult seating, a TV and children’s furniture, carpet and puppet theatre have been purchased for the Hope Library with the funds raised.
Reigning champions, Let’s get Quizzical, won the coveted Hope Highbrow Award – a team comprising: Miranda and Jacob Cowan, John Granger, Jessica McWilliams, Albert Dayrit, Jessica Broswick, Doug Hoshowski and Maya Araki-Hoshowski.
