  Welcome to Lowell Trivia
We would like to welcome you to Lowell's annual Trivia
Night and Silent Auction. We hope you are excited as we are
to participate in tonight's events and to help raise money for
Lowell Elementary.

Trivia night is a fun night for Lowell parents and teachers to
get together and have some fun. It is also a great opportu-
nity for parents, faculty, and the community to help raise
money that funds many of the programs/activities our chil-
dren enjoy at Lowell Elementary. These programs include
field trips, assemblies, STAR reading, and many other ac-

We would like to thank all of the families, businesses, and
individuals in our community who have generously donated
their time, talents, goods, and services to support our
school. Without this support, there would be no Silent Auc-
tion , so THANK YOU, THANK YOU , THANK YOU!!!!!!

Special thanks to Michele Mordacq and Suzanne MacDonald
for organizing Trivia Night.

So everyone kick back, enjoy the night and start bidding!!!!!
