TRINITY — After a year of working on the city’s looks, the Trinity Beautification Committee has made the town more inviting, especially after having welcome signs installed at both ends of the main road.

The committee, in coordination with the Trinity Economic Development Board and City Council, has installed two signs, measuring 6x13 feet wide, that will welcome visitors as they enter the city from both north and sound on Highway 19.

A dedication ceremony was held on Thursday at the sign on the north end of town, next to the hospital.

The Rev. Eric Gayle of Trinity Fellowship Church opened the ceremony with prayer and Mayor Billy Goodin welcomed those in attendance and thanked the Beautification Committee, Economic Development Committee, City Council, Trinity Memorial Hospital District, City Public Works Department and Extreme Signs for their hard work and dedication to the welcome sign project.

Goodin also said that the beatification of Trinity is vital to the promotion of pride and making Trinity a nice place to visit and a community anyone can be proud to call home.

Members of the Trinity Beautification Committee, Economic Development Board, and City Council gathered to cut the yellow ribbon officially dedicating the signs that welcome those travelling to and through the city of Trinity.

The Beautification Committee was established in 2022 at the request of Mayor Billy Goodin. Comprised of volunteers from the community, its goal is to promote a sense of pride in the Trinity community, as well as promote growth and economic development by planning and management of beautification projects, programs and policies over the coming years.
