NEF thanks Northborough community


The Northborough Ed Foundation (NEF) held its Second Annual Quiz Night on Friday April 1 at Cyprian Keyes Golf Club. The winning team was “Let's Look It Up,” which was represented the Northborough Free Library. “Let's Look It Up” teammates Vin and Marjorie Femia, Deborah Hersh and Ellen Church bested 30 other teams to take home the 2011 championship.

NEF would like to thank the 31 teams for their outstanding turnout. The positive energy in the room was tremendous, the game play exciting, and the final outcome hotly contested. The increase in team participation from 13 teams in year one to 31 registered teams in year two is indicative of the fun and competitive atmosphere of Quiz Night. The creativity shown in the various costumes and team names added to the festive spirit of the night. The NEF is truly grateful for the involvement of all the participants and we eagerly look forward to planning next year's edition of Quiz Night.

NEF would like to thank its corporate sponsors for supporting Quiz Night, which include: Alexander, Aronson, Finning & Co., CPA's and Melfa Wealth Management.

NEF would like to thank the following Northborough families who sponsored questions: the Reilly family, the Forbush family, the Leonard family, the Jankovich family, the Smith family, and the Stone family. NEF also offers our thanks to all the families and organizations that contributed to the raffle gift baskets.

NEF would like to extend a thank you to Cyprian Keyes for hosting Quiz Night, as well as Gillis Landscape and Nursery for providing the flowers for the centerpieces. A special thanks goes out to our talented emcee, Art Duffy, and our judges Karen Scopetski, Tom Lowe, and Rep.- D Harold Naughton, Jr. Finally, the NEF would like to thank our Quiz Night Committee members Sue Seppa, Tracy Duffy, and Sylvia Travis.
