Heartland Senior Services’ next Community Trivia Night will be Friday, July 25, at City Church (formerly Oakwood Church), 2400 Oakwood Rd., in Ames, starting at 6:30 p.m. Teams of five to eight people compete to answer questions about topics such as sports, movies, history, geography and current events. Each team is invited to bring their own snacks and non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy throughout the night. Cost is $10 per person. Cash prizes for the top three teams and door prizes from local businesses will be awarded at the conclusion of the game.
