Dear Friends,

On November 8, 2014, the Greene County Literacy Coalition will be hosting a trivia bowl to raise funds for our organization. The trivia bowl will be held at the Saron Church in Linton (440 1st Street NE) starting at noon. Entry fee will be $20 per person on a team or $80 per team. There will be 4 people on a team. You may send as many teams as you would like. I am encouraging your organization to challenge other organizations in Greene County to participate. Questions will be from all categories and will range from simple to hard. Trivia about Indiana and Greene County will be included. Lindsey Monroe weatherperson at WTHI will be our moderator this year!

If you can join us for this fun fundraising event please contact Beth Burcham at 384.4125 or e-mail literacy@bloomfield.lib.in.us before November 3rd. Teams will need to figure out a name such as “Brainiacs”, “Mean Greene Machine” etc. Teams again this year can e-mail 5 general category trivia questions to used in the event.
