Plenty of fun was to be had at the "Family Feud" night held at the Jamestown Community Building Saturday, Jan. 14. All of the proceeds from the quiz-team event went to supporting youth from the Jamestown area as they go on a mission trip this July.

Holly Eschenbrenner, a senior at Jamestown High School, came up with the idea.

"Last July," Holly said, "We took our first Mission Trip and did not really know what to expect. We loaded up and headed to Hurricane, There, 26 of us were divided up into different crews. A crew was made up of six different people who were all from different places. On my crew I had three people from Illinois, one from Wisconsin and one from Iowa. Each six-person crew was assigned a house to work on. Every house was in a different condition. Some homes needed simple repairs like a new paint job while others needed major repairs like a new roof. All of the residents of these homes were in need."
