Paly Team Urgently Needs Your Help!!!

Original post made by Paly on Feb 2, 2008

Hello Palo Alto,

This is the Paly High Friends of Millard Fillmore Trivia Hunt team. This weekend we are participating in a trivia/scavenger hunt against other schools in the Bay Area and, among other things, we are looking for:

1. an admission receipt, ticket stub or badge from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

2. a sample ballot from the October 2003 recall election

If you have either of these things, it'd be extremely helpful if we could borrow them (before Sunday evening) for the weekend and then return them to you on Tuesday. E-mail us at or call us at (650) 704-9376.

My children used to participate in this competition when they went to Paly. It's such a great way for students to learn essential skills such as problem solving and resourcefulness. I really wish I had these two things so I could help out the school's trivia team, but unfortunately, the met ticket, I misplaced and can't seem to find.

Good luck Paly!!!!!!

I wish I'd saved my stub or badge from my last visit to the Metropolitan 7 years ago...

Good luck!
