To enter just mail or e-mail (GPDavisDDS@cinci.rr.com) me with your name, address and phone number along with your trivia answers. The deadline for entries will be September 1, 2015. Anyone who answers all ten questions correctly will be entered in a final drawing to determine the ultimate trivia champion and winner of a $100.00 gift certificate to the local store, business, gas station or restaurant of your choice.
