As the March Beacon went to press, The Andover Community Hub was hosting its first in what is planned to be a monthly “Trivia Night” series open to public participation (on a first-come, first-served signup basis), and before a public audience via Zoom. Look for the names of winners in the April Beacon.
The next Trivia Night will be held on Thursday, March 25, at 7 PM. Participants and viewers may “attend” from their desktop or laptop computers at home, using a Zoom link obtained by sending an email to TheAndoverHub@nullgmail.com.
Future events are scheduled for the fourth Thursday of each month. Those wishing to participate — as individuals or in teams — may sign up anytime via the email address above. Teams are limited to six members. Questions are for all ages.
For those unfamiliar with events of this kind, it’s a fun time to test your knowledge, perhaps learn something, and possibly win a pizza. Trivial Pursuit, a board game similar in content to this live event, has been a popular pastime since the 1980s.
The contest host is Andover’s Ken Wells, a retired physics teacher, current Hub board member, and former New Hampshire State Representative serving Andover, Danbury, and Salisbury. The show’s producer is Mark Vashro, also a Hub board member, and an award-winning actor/producer/director who recently relocated with his family to Andover from California.
