The League of Women Voters of Franklin County is hosting its 2nd Annual Civics Trivia Night on Oct. 5.

The fundraiser will be held at the Greenfield Elks Lodge at 3-5 Church Street, with the doors open at 7 p.m. and the trivia game starting at 7:30 p.m. Questions will cover federal, state, and local government, current affairs, and American history.

This year’s quizmasters are Natalie Blais, executive director of the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce and presumptive new state Rep. for the 1st Franklin District; and Barry McColgan, former Greenfield High School English teacher and part-time librarian at the Greenfield Public Library.

“Last year’s trivia night was a fun exercise in community-building, and helped fund our many candidate forums this year, as well as our voter registration and outreach efforts,” said Marie Gauthier, League chapter president. “We have a lot more on deck, so we’re hoping for another great turnout.”

There will be cash prizes, complimentary snacks, and the evening will close with a gift basket raffle.

The trivia night will raise money for the League to continue conducting forums on various policy issues and informational events, help create a fund to subsidize membership dues for the less advantaged, and eventually a scholarship fund for local high school students.

Admission is $10 per person, with teams of up to eight people allowed. A cash bar will be available.

The League of Women Voters of Franklin County is a non-partisan grassroots political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
