The Rotary Club of Chariton is using an evening of entertainment to help raise funds for community projects, such as improving parks and playgrounds in Chariton. The Saturday, March 7, Chariton Rotary Club Trivia Night will generate additional funds to improve access to playgrounds for people with limited mobility, according to Rotary Fundraising Chair Brian Sims.
“We are using the popularity of this event to channel money to a very worthy cause – improving our community playgrounds and access to them,” Sims said. “Rotary is committed to improving our community and the lives of our friends and neighbors. We are collaborating with the Kiwanis Club of Chariton and the City of Chariton to add a wheelchair swing and improve ADA access to the play area at Halferty Park. We hope others will join us by attending our Trivia Night and supporting our community park project.” The local Rotarians have received a $2,000 Rotary grant and are working to raise the required matching funds.
Trivia teams of up to eight people per team are encouraged to participate in the semi-annual Chariton Rotary Club Trivia Night to be held March 7, at the Freight House at 1115 Auburn Avenue in Chariton. Cost per team is $80 (or $10 per teammate), with the proceeds helping support the Rotary Club of Chariton’s playground project. Even if you don’t consider yourself good at trivia, don’t worry. Sims said most people are very surprised to find out how many answers they actually know.
