NECC to host holiday trivia night

The time of year when people gather with family the most has arrived, but because of COVID-19, this year is a little different.

Charlie Baker, governor of Massachusetts, has made multiple restrictions for gatherings and outings. To bring some entertainment for people who are stuck inside, Northern Essex Community College has organized a trivia night.

NECC has been hosting events like this one for months in attempts to lift the community’s spirits up.

Student, Cadrin Comeau, said “I didn’t know NECC was doing anything for the holiday season, but I will have to check it out.”

Trivia night is a great way for students to relieve the stress that finals bring, while social distancing in their home!

The event will be held over Zoom this upcoming Friday, Dec. 11th at 6:30 p.m. The winner of Trivia Night will be awarded a Yankee Candle gift basket worth $250! Donations will also be accepted, According to an announcement about the event:  “All proceeds go to Fidelity House Inc, CRC–helping the families raising children with disabilities in the Merrimack Valley area who are facing food and economic insecurity”.

Northern Essex Community College planned a lot of fun events for the holiday season and continues to plan more for the future.

Students are extremely grateful that their community is taking the time to plan events that they can attend in their home.

Sarah Blaine, second year student, says “So many things have been cancelled for me this year, I’m glad I’m able to do something from my home!”

There will be many more interactive activities within the next few months, available to view on the NECC Observer and on the Student Life secton of the NECC website.
