•The Fourth of July this year is on a Tuesday. I am waiting to hear from Trinity City Hall to tell me when and where our fireworks display will take place. I believe I was told the fireworks will take place on July 1, but watch this space for answers next week.

I think I saw where Groveton Lions Club is having vendors and activities on Tuesday, July 4, and the Groveton City is going to have their fireworks on that day also.

See you around town.
