The Guttenberg Rotary Club is planning its second annual Trivia Night. The event will again be held at the Guttenberg Golf and Country Club on Friday, Jan. 25. 

Doors will open at 5 p.m. with a buffet dinner starting at 6 p.m. The dinner buffet will include: fried chicken, pork loin, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, tossed side salad, dinner rolls,  cheese cake, coffee and water.

A cash bar will be available from 5 p.m. - 12 midnight. 

Teams of up to six people can take part; registration fee is $300 per team/table. To sign up, contact John Finch or Crystal Duwe at Meuser Lumber Co., 563-252-1030. Registration deadline is Saturday, Jan. 19. 

Past president, John Finch presented the idea to the Rotary Club last year as a way to fulfill their pledge to the Wave of the Future project for the new swimming pool. 

Rotary raised $5,027 during last year's trivia event. They are hoping to raise a similar amount this year to complete their pledge obligation. 

Once again, Steve Dikkers will host the "Battle of the Brains!" trivia night as the trivia master.
