Dear Heritage Group Members,

Our potential plan to look at RRC Hospitality putting on a Valentine’s lunch for us in the Prairie Lights will not work out as there are no students available to work that day, February 21st.  However, we have another idea that we would like your thoughts about. Karen Wall of the Heritage Group Social Committee has been active in putting on Trivia events for her church and has a collection of over 300 trivia questions in her “trivia bank”. The Social Committee would like to propose we hold a fun Trivia game session with a light lunch on February 21 st from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

  • We will chose questions from the bank from among the following topics:
    • Manitoba Sports: questions about the Jets, Blue Bombers and Goldeyes
    • Winnipeg Arts Community: questions about the ballet, symphony, opera, MTC, Folklorama, Rainbow Stage, etc.
    • Interesting Facts about Winnipeg
    • Indigenous People of Canada and Manitoba
    • Well-known Canadian Authors
    • First Line of Famous Novels
    • Valentine’s Trivia
    • Recognizing Canadian Landmarks by picture
    • Recognizing Manitoba Landmarks by picture
    • Recognizing Winnipeg Historical Buildings by picture
    • Naming Academy Award-winning Movies with a picture and the year as a clue
  • We would have people work in teams (the size of the teams dependent on the number of attendees)… and we would have small prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams.
  • We would hold it here at the college.  We have already alerted Laura and Elena to look into booking an appropriate room for us.
  • We would have a light lunch brought in like pizza or sandwiches.
  • We would charge $10/person as the only cost to us will be the food.  We thought you would appreciate an event that only costs $10 as the Christmas Luncheon was $35 and our May trip to the Mennonite Heritage Museum will likely cost a similar amount.

Members were asked to bring their thoughts on this idea to the January Heritage Group meeting.
