The place to be on Wednesday, November 14, is the Tallman Room of the North Grenville Public Library, where the 16th Annual General Meeting of the Friends of the Library is scheduled for 7 pm. All are welcome to join us at the Library, 1 Water St. in Kemptville, for our 16th AGM (very brief) and a celebration Trivia Bee. Come pick a team and cheer on your local celebrities/personalities as they battle to be the top trivia wizards of the town! Refreshments will be served. Fully accessible, we look forward to welcoming you. Free event provided by the Friends of the Library.
Master of Ceremonies for the evening is Joan Simpson, with Jude Fader Levere as Event Coordinator (Queen Bee). Bee Master is Rachel Brown, our dynamic new Librarian (CEO).
Two teams, composed of the following individuals, will engage in a fierce intellectual exercise:
Team A – The Intelligentsia: Nancy Peckford, Sheila Pratt, Paul Vavasour, Isla McLean, and Vanessa Skelton.
Team B – The Enlightened Ones: Doreen O’Sullivan, Paul Jansen, Tira Porter, Ruth Hooper, and Chris Morgan.
Other planners: Arbiter, Jeff Murray; Scorekeeper, Pat Babin; Barb McDerby, Barbara Rousseau; Timer, Ridley Levere, Mary Carlson, Barbara Rousseau.
Savoury refreshments will be provided by Vivian Howe and her gourmet gang. There is no admission fee. The six hundred trivia items featured that evening will be selected from the Pearly Brook Archives by two experts. It should be a great and fun-filled evening.
