Trivia night helped cinema
The the editor:
On March 1, the Will Rogers Independent Living Community hosted a fundraiser for the Palace Theatre to help with our Go Digital or Go Dark campaign.
Susan Waters, along with Debbie Kanze, organized a Trivia Night. Brian Mann from North Country Public Radio put together an ingenious list of 100 trivia questions, each having something to do with movies. I must not forget to mention the invaluable help from the four Saranac Lake High School students. We sincerely thank you all for your time and effort.
Members of the Smarty Pants Trivia group, along with others, turned out in full force, filling 15 tables (more than 100 people). Never having experienced a trivia event before, we were amazed at the intelligence of the fun-loving participants.
Reg and I want to thank each of the people who attended and showed support for the Palace Theatre. We are very close to being able to convert our final theater screens, and the $2,665 raised will greatly help us meet our monetary goal.
Thank you, one and all – I wish I could write each of you but hope this public letter to the editor is acceptible.
