Question – How many houses has Habitat for Humanity built in St. Francois County? Answer 7.
The Farmington Women of Today are helping to fund house number 8 with a Trivia Night at 7 p.m. March 18 at Farmington Church of the Nazarene’s Fellowship Hall at 801 N. Middle Street.
Organizer Faye Worley, a member of the Women of Today, said the club decided to help Habitat because the organization’s members had enjoyed helping the Christian housing ministry in the past, and had been thinking of sponsoring a Trivia Night.
“We try to be community-minded and we wanted to put on our first Trivia Night, so we thought of Habitat as the organization it could benefit,” Worley said. “If it comes off, and we’re hoping it will, we hope to make this an annual event that everyone can count on. We’re having fun with planning it so far and we’ve really enjoyed working with Habitat for Humanity members.”
Each table can be reserved for $100 by calling Renee Kurtz at 760-1526 before March 13. There is a maximum of eight players per team table.
Kimball Crum of Park Hills will emcee the evening with 10 rounds of 10 questions each. Prizes will be given throughout the evening, with special prizes for first, second and third places, and for the most creatively-decorated or costumed tables.
“We’re coming up with ways to put a spin on the traditional trivia nights,” Kurtz said. “We’re encouraging teams to decorate their tables or wear costumes – for example, a whole table of Elvises or Red Hat Clubs — so those who come will definitely find a good time. We plan to laugh the whole night.”
Farmington Women of Today operates under the auspices of United States Women of Today, which provides state and local member chapter opportunities in the areas of leadership training, personal growth, community service and work in partnership with established foundations.
Habitat for Humanity recently finished building two houses on Perrine Street in Farmington.
