Society to honor veterans

Nov. 06, 2012 @ 07:02 PM

Well, its that time again, time to rake leaves, get out the pumpkins and decorate for fall.

October is the time when the Friends of Trinity sponsor their annual car show and chili cook off. Thanks to all who brought out their beautiful cars, who cooked chili and the Trinity High School color guard for participating in the opening ceremony.

Thanks also goes to the Triad Wind Ensemble for entertaining everyone with their beautiful rendition of the National Anthem and a medley of patriotic songs, the THS marching band, the deejay who volunteers his time and talents, the Fairgrove Fire Department and all the vendors who brought their beautiful items to sell. Without you, we couldn’t have been a success.

In coming events, the Friends of Trinity, again this year, will serve a free hot dog lunch to any veteran and their family members at Trinity Community Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10.

Please park at Braxton Craven Gym and walk over. We will have chairs and tables set up for your convenience.

On Veterans Day, NOv. 11, the Trinity Historic Preservation Society will serve coffee and donuts at the Trinity Museum from 2 to 4 p.m. for veterans and their families.

Please come by and see our Veterans Wall and our Veterans Room in the museum.

We have 196 names on the wall and have room for more if you would like to add a name.

We have a map of N.C. 62, from the railroad track down to Hopewell Church Road, which shows the location of 74 homes where veterans live. The time frame spans from the Civil War until now.

Hope to see you at these events.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
