How Does Trivia Night Work?

You and your table are competing against the other tables in a no holds barred contest of useful and seemingly useless knowledge and factoids.

• Must be 18 or older to participate
• Your Quiz Master will read a series of 10 questions out loud each round.
• You will work as a table to write your best answers on that round’s score card.
• Your one answer per question goes in the left hand column of the score card.
• Write your team name or number at bottom of the score card at the end of each round.
• Turn your score card into the Scorekeeper’s Table at the end of the round.
• No cell phones or smart devices of any kind may be used or accessed during a round.
• Failure to follow these rules may result in loss of points for the round.
• Once all score cards are turned-in the answers will be revealed as the Scorekeepers check your answers.

SEPT. "INSPIRING PEOPLE"

NEXT INSPIRING PEOPLE - AMAZING WOMEN OF OUR TIME

Thursday, September 14th, 7:00pm-7:45pm // St. John's Hall

Join Sri Lankan born award-winning author and SJE Parishioner Preethi Fernando for the next talk in our “Inspiring People” series.  It will be a storytelling presentation on "Amazing Women of Our Time And What We Can Learn From Them." 

Wilma Rudolph (1940-1994) contracted Polio when she was five and could not walk until she was twelve. At the 1960 Summer Olympics she won three Gold medals  in running and became the fastest runner on earth. Mother Teresa (1910-1997) faced the good, the bad, and the ugly, and altered the lives of millions. Preethi shares a personal experience of visiting a Mother Teresa Orphanage in her country of birth, Sri Lanka. The first woman to win a Nobel Prize, Marie Curie suffered trauma and financial hardship throughout her life. Yet, she never gave up. She juggled motherhood and an amazingly prolific career in science. 

 

Preethi's presentation goes beyond the life stories of remarkable women and highlights the extraordinary leadership qualities among each one of us, no matter how ordinary we feel about ourselves.  It inspires each and every one of us to unlock our own dreams and to not hide our light under a bushel.
