Another beautiful weekend with the threat of thunderstorms and tornados. Trinity received a little rain, but not what the weather forecaster predicted. However, people took advantage of the weather and visited many garage sales in this area.
The rummage sale at Westwood Shores Subdivision was a huge success and our security team did a good job keeping our traffic and guests safe. By 5 p.m. there was no sign of outside items or congestion. We were back to normal as usual on Saturday evening.
•Last week I went to press before I could mention the Easter egg hunt at the Blanche K. Werner Public Library of Trinity on April 3, but I am sure the children who will be attend during the week will know about the activities there.
However, I will remind you that there are still three events you can attend this weekend regarding Easter Egg Hunts.
There is a hunt to be held on Friday (Good Friday) at the River Pointe Rehabilitation Center on April 7, located on South Highway 19 starting at 10 a.m.
Another is the Easter egg hunt at the VFW Post 6899 to be held on Saturday at 400 Caroline St. starting at 10 a.m.
If you cannot attend the other two events, you can still get your picture taken with Bugs Bunny and the Easter Bunny at Brookshire Brothers Grocery Store on Highway 19 South in Trinity. Photos, candy, and prizes will start at 11 a.m. and end in the early afternoon.
•It was my twin grandson’s prom night in Buda this weekend, and I am waiting on pictures so I can live vicariously through their pictures.
•April 22 is TISD’s Junior/Senior Prom that is being held at the Manor House on 2005 Pine Crest St. I wonder how many fancy autos and limos we will see around Trinity that night.
Proms are very expensive for parents to finance, but can you image what it costs for twins, or a junior and a senior of the same family for 4 years? Spring breaks and graduation day aren’t cheap either. I am glad I am beyond all that expense, but I do miss the excitement, the suspense, and the camaraderie with my children during these days.
•Can you believe that the month of March is gone, and April is already here. April comes from the Latin word aperio, “to open” (bud), because plants begin to grow during this month.
The surprising origins of Easter Symbols, from lambs to lilies are Easter symbols that have significance to us. But do you know why?
According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac 2022, the origin of the Easter egg is based on ancient fertility lore.
The Easter bunny came from the Germans (like Santa Claus).
Then there are Easter foods; lamb, Easter breads, sweet buns, and hot cross buns that mark the end of Lent.
The Easter Lily, with its sheer white petals, symbolizes life, purity, innocence, joy and peace.
The Easter lamb is the most popular among Easter symbols, because it is said to symbolize Jesus, who embodies purity and goodness, and also represents sacrifice.
