Upcoming community events announced
TEA: Women Growing in Faith will hold the Harmony Grove Lutheran Church’s first Ladies Day Out Tea from 9:30 to 10 a.m. March 29 at 6584 Five Points Road, Five Points.
The guest speaker will be Michele Huey, writer of “God, Me and a Cup of Tea,” which appears weekly in the Indiana Gazette. She will speak on “What Kind of Bag Are You?”
Lunch will be provided and there will be door prizes. The cost is $15 per person. Enjoy a relaxing day of friends, food, music and spiritual guidance with fellow women. For advanced tickets, call Belva Marco at (724) 349-0657 or Myrna Orr at (724) 397-2615. RSVP by March 15 to Marco at 1790 Dark Hollow Road, Indiana, PA 15701.
TRIVIA NIGHT: The Beth Israel Synagogue will hold its 10th annual Trivia Night on March 8 at the Eagles Lodge on Philadelphia Street in Indiana. The event is limited to 150 people and is typically sold out.
“Registration opens at 6:30 p.m. with outrageous desserts and the newly featured ‘healthy corner,’” said Millie Glinsky, who, along with Marcy Wilson, is coordinating the event’s menu. “And we always include a surprise snack, like the kosher hot dogs or deli delish, featured in past years.”
Game time is 7 p.m. when Gerry Pfeffer, the evening’s host, begins his mind-bending, always stimulating and often amusing eight rounds of questions. Visual, audio and theme rounds challenge teams of eight to 10 players.
“Come with a team or come alone and be placed on a team,” Pfeffer said. “Either way, you’ll feel at home in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.”
Mike Kingan, event chairman, encourages early registration, as “the popularity of this event has grown over the years.”
Tickets are $40 and may be purchased from synagogue members or by calling Cari Meil at (724) 422-2065 or Shari Baumler at (724) 388-2979.
