It began as a simple night of teams enjoying themselves with team tables of treats and friendly competition, and it would end that way. However, not before a new challenge would be introduced. Which team had the best treats? I could see this becoming a new part of the Trivia nights. With a total of 8 teams, there would be 8 rounds of 10 questions. The point spread between the lowest and highest score in just the first round would be only 7 points. As the game would progress the point lead would grow to as much as a 17 point spread. Trying to answer those brain teasers isn't the only excitement of the night. There are various prizes that one may purchase tickets for. There are several raffle items to win, and the mystery prizes are always fun. Those who purchase tickets get to take a chance on good luck and bad luck. Well that depends how you look at the winnings. You can never go wrong with the tickets for the 50/50 cash drawing. The winner gets to take home half of the cash from the drawing.
THE SYSTEM LORDS SETTLE IN AT 2ND PLACE!

WEEK OF THE YOUNG CHILD
Our Executive Director, Sean Cavanaugh, spent some time this week with some young children of our community. He stopped in at the Teddy Bear Child Develpment Center to read "In the Doghouse" to the preschoolers. Sean explained that he would need their help as he read. They quietly listened as he read, and they never missed their cue. When it was time they responded with their part saying "In the Doghouse".
If you happen to make a trip to the Warren County Library check out the caterpillar in the window of the kids library section. The Lutheran Day Care, Roseville Kids Place, and Teddy Bear Child Development Center children all helped make Mr. Caterpillar.
All eyes and ears were listening intently. Even Gary looked on with enthusiasm. Pictures are worth a 1000 words and so are the smiles of these young children.
SPRING TRIVIA NIGHT
SSPRING WAS IN THE AIR!
The Spring Trivia for 2013 should have a few people talking! There were 9 teams participating in 8 rounds of questions. A pretty good turn out, and a very close race from begining to end. The first two rounds separated the first and second place winners by only 1 point. However, the remaining six rounds left a two or three way tie for 1st or 2nd place every time. The second place winner had to be decided in the end with a tie breaker question created by the judges. I believe everyone had a great time. It was wonderful to see so many people participate in our Annual event to help support the local Warren County United Way.
Congratulation to our first place winners! "System Lords"
Congratulations to our Second place winners. The "A" team.
