Kiwanis welcome teams to be in trivia competition

The Steubenville Kiwanis Club is continuing to prepare for its third-annual trivia competition fundraiser to be held March 9 in the Steubenville High School Commons beginning at 7 p.m.

Teams will compete for cash prizes and bragging rights as participants test their knowledge and have fun in the process.

Anyone interested can organize a team of 10 or less to participate. The cost is $100 for a team no matter its size, whether it’s two or three members or the maximum 10. There will be no concessions available this time around, but teams are at liberty to bring their own snacks.

The event also will include a 50-50 drawing. Phyllis Riccadonna is in charge of the Chinese auction.

Anyone interested can contact Tom Timmons by phone at (740) 314-9574 or by e-mail at

Larry Coleman, January program chair, has scheduled lunch and a program for Tuesday that will be away from the normal meeting site at the YWCA as members will meet instead at Nelson Fine Art and Gifts in Steubenville.

Owner Mark Nelson will welcome club members to his business located in what used to be Lincoln Elementary School on Sinclair Avenue. Club members will tour the facilities after lunch.

At the Jan. 22 meeting held at the YWCA, the club heard updates from Jerry Barilla, president of the Old Fort Steuben Project, and Judy Bratten, executive director of the Historic Fort Steuben.

Guests at the Jan. 22 meeting were Steubenville High School Key Club members Brooke Sutherland and Farrah Marcino, attending with Ross Ivkovich, adviser.

Club President Cas Adulewicz presided at the meeting where the group received thank-you notes from East Elementary School, Steubenville, for sponsoring the annual Christmas party for first-graders; from the United Way of Jefferson County for a $500 pledge; and from the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County for a recent $100 donation.
