Julias TidbitsThe Boys and Girls Club Valentine Dinner and Dance was a huge success. The music was great, the food was delicious, and the community was very gracious with their charity. The Live auction made over $5,000 dollars, but I don’t have a total amount to report at this time.

Our special guest, Trent Ashby, reported what a great time he and his sweetheart Nickie had at this event.

The highlight of the evening was the Presentation to Jannette Hortman for her 24 years of service to the Boys and Girls Club of Trinity from 1999 to 2024. She was stunning in Valentine attire, and pleased to see all her old friends, especially Trent Ashby. We love you, Jannette.

I will list all the donations from the businesses and community next week, so stay tuned for updates and monetary earnings in the next issue.

•I am always happy to see registration signs for youth baseball signups. That means spring is on the way. New this year is Wee Ball, ages are 3- and 4-Year-olds. The registration signs are posted on local corners of the city, so register early please. I believe the date I saw was Feb. 23. Call Jackie Goodall, he will tell you the correct information.

The seventh Annual Haley Burk Memorial Foundation is hosting their yearly softball tournament on March 2 downtown at the Stadium Street baseball fields. The cost per team is $200. Please register before Feb. 28 to avoid a late fee. The tournament is co-ed, but ages 15-plus must have a waiver.

Concessions and a silent auction are planned for the day, and vendors are welcome for $100 a space. The foundation will provide food and beverage booths. Raffles and door prizes will abound. For more information, please call Shane Pringle at (936) 662-8180 or (936) 662-4658.

•TISD Middle School cheerleading tryouts are March 9.

Melonie Beasley, the Cheerleading TISD Sponsor, has mentioned that it would be wonderful if any local donor would sponsor a student to participate in this extracurricular activity, as some of these student applicants cannot afford to participate in try-outs because family financial responsibility is not available to them. A Cheerleading Clinic precedes the Cheerleading Tryouts.

•TISD Spring Break is March 11-14.

•The Trinity County Livestock and Student Exhibition show is March 14-16 in Groveton. Watch this space for more information.

For more information call Bobbie at (936) 662-2917. (This is a correction from last week on the name and telephone number to call.)

•Here is the greatest news of all: the City of Trinity has finally gotten a sign put up on Stadium Street in honor of the Black Veterans of World War ll. There will be a dedication of this memorial on Tuesday, Feb. 27, at the baseball field. The Sign reads “Black Veterans Park.”

Thank you, Patriot Trinity Steel LLC for building and erecting this sign to pay homage to these gallant men. This recognition was long overdue. We are grateful to the Neals and their service to the community.
