Report from 2016 Trivia Night
Thirteen teams of four took part in the event and answered questions about GardenShare, the region's colleges, farming, and beekeeping. When we finished up that evening, almost $2,700 had been raised to support GardenShare's work to solve the problem of hunger in St. Lawrence County!
The winning team represented St. Lawrence Health System, who was also one of the presenting sponsors. Other presenting sponsors included North Country Savings Bank and Stauffer Farms. Friend sponsors were Green Hammer Construction, Save-a-Lot and SeaComm. Tony Lynn, morning show host at The Wolf 95.3 was the evening's Master of Ceremonies.
The amazing volunteer committee that organized this event demonstrated what a caring community we have, as did all the local farms and businesses who donated to make this event possible. It's great to be part of such a generous and caring community!
