Please join us in celebrating the 30th anniversary of the California State Library Adult Literacy Initiative at the 13th Annual Upland Public Library Trivia Bee and Silent Auction. Team Rutherford, led by County Supervisor Janice Rutherford, will return to defend their 2013 title as Trivia Bee Champions. This evening competition of friendly banter and bidding takes place the Gibson Senior Center, Thursday, September 25, 6:00 p.m. The Gibson Senior Center is located at 250 N. 3rd Avenue. Admission to the Trivia Bee and Silent Auction is free and allows you to bid on a variety of prizes, and watch and cheer for your favorite trivia teams. Trivia teams can win bonus points from the judges for the exceptional use of wise cracks, puns, and/or graphics (marker boards provided). Trivia judges award points for correct answers, plus bonus or make-up points for flair, presentation, and/or Bee Bucks. Master of Ceremony Bob Cable presided over the mayhem in 2013, as the teams guesstimated, sketched, sang and sometimes provided the correct answer for the most points. All proceeds benefit Upland’s Adult Literacy Program, for which state funding is determined by the amount of local monies raised. Trivia teams and auction items are sponsored by local businesses and community organizations. For information on sponsoring or participating as a team ($150 team entry fee) or on donating goods or services as auction items, please contact Literacy Coordinator Liz Barbee, (909) 931-4211.

Congratulations to Team Rutherford, the champion of the 12th Annual Literacy Trivia Bee and Silent Auction on March 28th! Francie’s Fanatics (Library staff), the Justice League (City Attorney’s team), The Tutor Titans, intrepid newbies from the Pacific Christian Center, You Bee History (UHS teachers), and last year’s champs, the Upland Highlanders all presented a valiant effort. Nevertheless, County Supervisor Janice Rutherford led her team members Lisa Jeffers and Gayla Sanchez (who always happens to be her mother) to victory. Trivia Judges Tom Thomas and Renuka Balakrishnan awarded points for correct answers, plus bonus or make-up points for flair, presentation, and/or Bee Bucks. Master of Ceremony Bob Cable presided over the mayhem (when Scorekeeper Ann Thomas allowed him), as the teams guesstimated, sketched, sang, and sometimes provided the correct answer for the most points. A light dinner and dessert was provided by Jersey Mike’s, Pine Haven Catering, Progressive Catering, Claro’s Italian Market, and the Brandt Family Winery.
Many thanks to the team sponsors and auction donors:
