•March 17 is the first blood drive of the new year hosted by the Knight of Columbus from the Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church. The event starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Brookshire Brothers on Highway 19 South. Please come give to this much-needed noble cause.

•Two years ago, my son was elected to be president of the Trinity Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and he made a promise to improve the community surroundings and downtown business areas.

His idea resonated with the city officials and to date they have erected and dedicated welcome to Trinity signs at both ends of our city and provided new trash cans downtown. The signs are awesome.

•At the beginning of this article, I told you about the dedication taking place Tuesday at 4 p.m. for the newly erected wrought iron sign donated by Patriot Trinity Steel LLC. I hope all of Trinity will attend this dedication.

Did you know The Black Veterans Memorial Park has a Trinity Historical Marker located by the wrought iron fence sign? I lived here 10 years before I ever stopped and read this marker. My children were grown when I moved to Trinity, and I had no reason to pay attention to the baseball field and park here.

In my opinion, I do hope there is some way we can have a fundraiser to provide lights to this wonderful sign, as it cannot be seen at night. The pink concession stand building can be seen from the road in the distance, which is necessary, but I want the sign to be lit up too.

See you next Tuesday at the Park.
