Knowledge is Power.  Sharing is Fun !

              The Great Gray Matter Challenge is held in the Berkeley Springs High School Cafeteria in January.
                                   Join us at 1:30pm, January 20, 2019.
People of ages ranging from 15 to 86 years combine into teams of four to six people and answer 100 questions on topics in arts, sciences, technologies and social studies. Some call it “Academic Games” or “Trivial Pursuit”, and we call it “FUN”.  See more history about this informal community education project.

In January, 2018,  Kaitlyn Hashem, Joseph Hashem, Ed Steers, Cathy Hoyt, Jim Hoyt, and Maureen Mylander joined friends and neighbors to have fun sharing ideas and raise over $600 for the Morgan County Library Literacy Fund

FAST was proud to sponsor this winning team, named Lindum Colonia, at the April 8 Brain Games competition, where it placed third. Their participation helped FAST donate $170 to the Literacy Volunteers of the Eastern Panhandle.
