    “The Hoard Historical Museum, which doesn’t charge general museum admission, raises a portion of its funds through memberships and fundraisers such as this,” said Merrilee Lee, director of the Hoard Historical Museum. Fundraisers such as this event help fund museum programming, exhibits on local history, and the general activities the Museum puts on for the community such as the Mary Hoard Art Show, the 4th of July Ice Cream Social, and the annual Holiday Open House.

    “In fact,” continued Lee, “This trivia night is the night before our annual Dairy Day at the MOOseum on Saturday, June 17 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and the funds raised at the trivia night will also help support our Dairy Day event.”

    Trivia categories include science, general knowledge, movies, music, sports, hot topics, and history. New this year and in recognition of June Dairy Month, one category will be on dairy and agriculture. Cash prizes will be given to winners. There will be four rounds of trivia with a bonus history round. Each round will be 20 minutes with a five-minute break between rounds. Snacks will be available for purchase along with a cash bar featuring beer, wine, and soda. There will also be a 50/50 raffle with proceeds to benefit the Hoard Historical Museum.

    “This is a wonderful event for people of all ages. It’s a great team-building occasion for work colleagues, or an entertaining casual event for a small group. It would also be a fun way to celebrate Father’s Day with your family,” said Lee.
