Everyone loves a pop quiz right?
Before you run away in horror, it's important to know that Friday is National Trivia Day. This makes it a great day to test your knowledge of the area.
Here are 10 questions. Some of them may be easy. Others may require a little bit of research here on Odenton-Severn Patch or elsewhere.
I have some Patch gear that I can deliver to the first person who can provide all of the correct answers in the comments section. If no one gets them all correct, I'll give the prizes to whoever posts the best score.
Question 1: Who was Odenton named after?
Question 2: What is the name of the apartment complex under construction at the old Nevamar site?
Question 3: Who is the current installation commander at Fort Meade?

Question 10: Who is Perry's Restaurant named after?
Speaking of Perry's, this is a good time to note that the restaurant has Trivia Night every Tuesday. It's a fun time.
This contest closes Monday at 8 p.m., and then I'll announce the winner. Have fun!
