Julias TidbitsAnother class of students have graduated and are looking forward to the beginning of another chapter in their life. Little do they know what lies ahead of them and tomorrow is only a day away. It is amazing you can watch your child, grandchild, or neighbor’s child graduate from high school in the comforts of your own home.

Tuesday, I will watch my last two grandchildren graduate from high school, and it will be from my daughter’s living room. If I am lucky, I might get to see some of my great-grandchildren graduate, but it will be by remote only. Thank God for technology.

•The sixth month of the year, June is named for the Roman goddess, patroness of marriage and the well-being of women. Also, from the Latin word juvenis, “young people.” The third Sunday in June is Fathers’ Day but was not declared a national holiday until the year 1972 under Richard Nixon’s administration. Lastly, most first-time marriages take place in the month of June. More about this later.

June is also the month of vacation bible schools at most churches that provide them at this time to beat the heat of July and August. Last week I told you about the VBS to be held at the Calvary Baptist Church in Trinity from June 12-16, in the evening. More next week.

Dorcas Wills Memorial Baptist Church is hosting its VBS in July. The dates are July 10 through July 14, and will be held from 8 a.m. until noon. The theme is “Twist and Turns” and registration will begin soon. Watch this space for more details next week also.

First Methodist Church of Trinity is hosting its VBS in July also. Their theme is a “Food Truck Party on a Roll with God.” On July 21, the church is having a family presentation and a splash day which starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. The church is located at 131 N. Elm St., and for more information, please call Laura at (936) 594-3826.

In addition to VBS, First Methodist Church of Trinity is hosting Community Family Movie Night during the summer. Bring the family and enjoy a night out. Each movie night there are door prizes and snacks. The free movies are June 2, “Jesus Revolution;” July 7, “The Girl Who Believed in Miracles; ” and Aug. 4, “On a Wing and A Prayer”

Movies start at 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. The public is invited to attend.

•People have been asking me what the new store front in the old Alco Center is going to be, but I do not know. The Pretty Daiq, I was told is going to be a daiquiri store; however, I do know that a tater sale is going to take place in the Pretty Daiq parking lot on Friday June 2, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

•We have a new produce stand in Trinity, and it is on the corner of FM 356 and 120 Emory Street next to Sudsy Duds. They are open Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and they have many fruits and vegetables for your pleasure. (They used to be located at the corner  of Lake L.) My Trinity Fruit Stand is presented by Edwin Dario Enriquez, and he promises to provide fresh produce daily.

On Wednesday, the Trinity Lions Club will hold its monthly business meeting at noon at the Trinity Peninsula Chamber of Commerce Building located at 103 Stadium St., and the public is invited to attend.

At this meeting we will be deciding on our June and July projects before the next President’s term begins, which is Charles Payne. We would like to help the Martin Senior Service Center and the Boys and Girls Club of Trinity during these two months, so please call me if you would like to participate at (936) 537-8171.
