Heartland Senior Center Trivia Night

Heartland Senior Services’ next Community Trivia Night will be Friday, Jan. 22, at City Church (formerly Oakwood Rd Church), 2400 Oakwood Rd. in Ames. Doors will open at 5:45 p.m., with trivia starting at 6:30.

Teams of five to eight people compete to answer questions about topics such as sports, movies, history, geography and current events. Each team is invited to bring their own snacks and nonalcoholic beverages to enjoy throughout the night. Everyone must play; no spectators please. Cost is $12 per person to play, with cash prizes for the top three teams. Door prizes from local businesses will also be awarded at the conclusion of the game.

The proceeds from the evening help Heartland Senior Services continue to provide needed countywide programs for seniors administered through adult day care, activities, nutrition (congregate and home-delivered meals) and outreach.
