Geneva Rotary sponsored a team at the annual Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley (LVFV) Trivia Bee. St. Charles Rotary Noon and Breakfast clubs and Batavia Rotary Club also participated.

Musical theater was this years theme for the Trivia Bee - Linda Williams, Dave Nelson and Chris Reiss were this year's team. They did not win a prize this year but did have the oddest name for their team - -- One Damn Thing After Another -- that is the title of a 1927 musical
