For those who excel at Trivial Pursuit, the Sedalia Kiwanis Club would like to put those skills to the test during its annual Trivia Night, set for Jan. 18.
“This is the fourth January we’ve held Trivia Night and it’s always been a big hit,” said Kiwanis member Bob Milner. “The great thing about it is teams can be from two to eight people, so this time we’re hoping to see a lot of service clubs, church groups, social groups, anyone who wants to come out and have a good time.”
Milner said there will be a category change this year; last year’s local Sedalia history category “got a few complaints because the questions were so difficult, so we got rid of it.”
Participants will instead answer questions about American history, arts and literature, food, presidential trivia, religion, sports and television.
All proceeds will go toward funding youth programs in the area, including the Smith-Cotton High School Key Club, a service club sponsored by the Kiwanis.
“The Key Club was started this past fall, so some of the proceeds will go toward helping them with their various projects,” he said.
There will be prizes for the top team, door prizes, a 50/50 raffle and silent auction. Snacks will be provided and soda and water will be available for a $1 donation.
“We’re hoping to see a lot of new teams this year,” Milner said. “Every year we seem to get a little bit bigger and we’re hoping this year is no different. There’s not much going on in January, and really, $10 isn’t much to pay for a night’s worth of entertainment, so everyone should round up some friends, make a team and come on out.”
Sedalia Kiwanis Club Trivia Night will start at 7 p.m. Jan. 18 at the Salvation Army, 1200 E. Broadway Blvd. Cost is $10 per person. For more information or to register a team, call 827-5442 or email
