Refreshments will be provided. This event is free and open to the public.
Following the Council’s friendraising event, be sure to join in the fun by participating in The River House’s Trivia Night! Join the regular hosts, the Grassi family, and test your smarts over different rounds of trivia questions. The Humanities Council’s new Director will kick things off by asking a special round of West Virginia trivia.
