MARLBOROUGH – Lots of laughs took place on April Fool’s Day in Hudson when the Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club (MJWC) hosted its 16th Trivia Night on April 1.
Twenty-one teams of between six and 10 contestants filled the Hudson-Concord Elks Lodge 959. The Buffet Way provided appetizer plates.
After a two-year hiatus due to pandemic restrictions Joel Bates returned as the trivia moderator for his 16th year. He began by playing “Welcome Back,” the theme song of the 1970’s television sitcom “Welcome Back, Kotter.”
Among the trivia categories were culture, food, literature, science, sports and TV.
Each contestant of the winning team, named the “Sea Glass Sistas,” went home with a gift certificate for Firefly’s BBQ. The winning teammates were Jen Gough, Caitlin Hynes, Kelly Kirsch, J.J. Lynch, Susie Ouellette, Tammy Short and Kathy Whitman.
Christy Allison won a 50/50 raffle. Additional funds were also raised with several donated raffle baskets.
This year also marked the return from a two-year hiatus of MJWC’s Metrowest Princess Boutique on March 19. The project helps families in need of assistance by offering new and gently-used prom gowns and accessories to high school girls. Monetary and clothing donations are collected year-round.
Now, plans are underway for this fall’s return of MJWC’s Trunk or Treat event.
