Julias TidbitsIt is hard to believe that two months of the new year have almost passed, and early voting is nearly over for local office seekers. By the time November comes, I will be sick of politics, but still thankful that I live in America where our vote still counts.

This weekend several events will take place, and March 1 is Friday. I will list some of the events that will take place that you can still attend this week, but some events will be dead and gone.

Also, I am going to list the Trinity Community Calendar presented by the Trinity Peninsula Chamber of Commerce for 2024, even though six major events have passed. When you review this calendar, if your organization is not listed, text me at (936) 537-8171 or email, This email address is being protected from spambots.
