Saturday, Nov. 12, is the Trinity City’s Founders Day Celebration at the Trinity Community Center starting at 10 a.m. and ending at 8 p.m. The Food Vendors and Craft Show open their booths at 10 a.m. and will be here all day for your enjoyment.
Children’s music and activities will please every child inside and outside the Community Center from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. The Trinity Tabernacle Pentecostal Church Children’s Choir will perform at 11 a.m. on the Pavilion next to the playground area. Included in this performance is a children’s puppet show.
At noon the Blanche K. Werner Public Library of Trinity is hosting a Children’s Corner with stories, crafts, and projects for the younger children to have hands on fun. This event is taking place in the Annex Room inside the Community Center. This event is free.
The Time Capsule Ceremony is taking place at 1 p.m. and the reception with punch and cake follows this event. Local music begins at 3 p.m. and will continues into the late afternoon. Memory Pictures of this 150-year-old celebration will be taken by Shelly Chavez from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Kelly Hartsfield will perform at 3 p.m. followed by Mr. and Mrs. Quan, Lyle Stubbs, and Danny Cleveland. Other singers from the audience will be asked to participate and come up on the traveling stage handmade by Danny Cleveland if they are brave enough.
Last week when I announced that the VFW Post 6899 would be selling red poppies at the Founders Day venue, I made a horrible mistake. The veterans do not sell these items, but they are given out. People usually give donations to support our local Trinity Veterans Post 6899. The red poppies are purchased by our VFW to support the disabled veterans who make these flowers to support their families.
The Sesquicentennial Historic Committee will be setting up 150 years of information and Trinity pictures for you to enjoy on Saturday, Nov. 12. At this time if you have an item or picture you would like to put in the Time Capsule to be buried on Saturday at 1 p.m., you need to bring your artifact to the Trinity Community Center on Wednesday by 6 p.m. to secure a spot in the capsule.
To all the organizations or churches who would like to display their accomplishments of the past, we will set up Friday, Nov. 11, and we will help you with your area. Remember we have tables and chairs for you to use inside the Trinity Community, but you must bring your own to set up outside the Community Center.
We are pleased to announce that the following people will be representing their community at this event:
•First United Methodist Church,
•Dorcus Wills Memorial Baptist Church
•Glendale Methodist Church,
•Trinity Lions Club,
•VFW Post 6899,
•Trinity Community Fair Association
•Trinity Historic Society,
•Trinity County Crime Stoppers
Many other organizations will represent their members around town at their locations. Listed below is the schedule of events at this time, so come out and support your City’s Founders Day.
If you would like to display an old car, refurbished truck, motorcycle, or wagon, please be at the Trinity Community Center at 9 a.m. Saturday to display your entry. All car show entries will receive a free lunch, and certificate of this event. The event is free to all car show participants.
