Foothills Mennonite Church in Calgary and First Mennonite Church in Edmonton held trivia night fundraisers for Camp Valaqua on Feb. 9. Teams of six to eight people answered sets of questions, and results were posted after each set. Projections of the scores at each venue allowed teams in both cities to compare results in real time. Calgary’s Team Jemmll and Edmonton’s Not Cheating team tied for first place. By the end of the evening, a total of $5,200 was raised through team admission fees and donations. The money will be used to pay down a line of credit taken out in 2018 for needed washroom renovations. A total of $13,000 is left owing on the project.
