“We’re so proud of our trivia team, who worked hard to learn study material, and were also faced with ‘never before seen’ trivia questions during the competition,” said Kathy Tammen, Resident Services Coordinator at the Cambridge House.

Team members were Lynda Leggett, Priscilla Hale, and Johanna Koonce. The ladies studied for months prior to the competition. The team was awarded during a ceremony on Thursday, June 7th.

“It was challenging but we had a lot of fun,” said Koonce. “There were about 10 questions that stumped every team. If they have the competition again next year, I am looking forward to it.” She added, “we are going to try for first place!”
