Joyful Connections announces that the winning team of the first ever Family Frenzy was the Oak Harbor Knights of Columbus.
Winning team members were Father David Ritchie, Bill Eberle, John Madison, Tom Durbin and Tim Kuhn. Family Frenzy was played much like the game show “Family Feud.” Some of the questions were: “Name something a person on the bottom bunk hopes the person on the top bunk won’t do” and “What do you look for in a spouse that you also look for in a car?”
Emcees for the evening were Judge Kathleen Giesler and Robert Bratton, Chief of Police for the Village of Genoa. The Ottawa County Commissioners made a guest appearance as the X’s whenever a team gave a wrong answer. The wit of the emcees combined with the enthusiasm and answers from team members made for an evening filled with laughter.
The Knights team beat out five other teams on its quest to win the championship. The other teams competing were: Ottawa County Job & Family Services, Custom Canvas, Leadership Ottawa County Class of 2007 & Friends and the High Fives from RVI.
In addition to the Family Frenzy game, the teams also competed in a Funny Hat Contest. The Oak Harbor Knights of Columbus, wearing matching beanies, also won the Funny Hat Contest.
St. Boniface Catholic Church in Oak Harbor, St. John’s Lutheran Church in Oak Harbor, the National Bank of Ohio and Northern Manufacturing were sponsors for the event . All proceeds benefitted Joyful Connections, whose mission is to provide a healthy, safe, and home-like environment where children can interact with family members in a non-judgmental setting.
