Boy Scout color guard to lead fair parade
Trinity Standard -
TRINITY – In a fitting tribute, the Trinity Boy Scout Troop’s color guard will once again lead the way during the annual Trinity Community Fair parade on Saturday, Sept. 25. Both the Boy Scouts of American and the City of Trinity are celebrating their 100th anniversary during 2010. While Trinity has been around since the 1870s, it wasn’t incorporated as a city until 1910. The theme for the 61st Annual Trinity Community Fair is “Celebrating the Past, Shaping the Future – 100 Years of Trinity Pride.’ The City of Trinity’s elected officials will serve as the grand marshals for the annual parade. Those wishing to take part in the annual parade are urged to decorate their cars/floats/horses and themselves in keeping with the fair’s theme. Trinity’s history, even before it was officially a city, offers railroads, saw mills, farming, Old Red and more for inspiration for the decorations. The daring also may try to predict Trinity’s future with their parade entries. Everyone wishing to participate in the parade must apply with Parade Chair Kim Wheeless no later than 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept.25th. Earlier notice is preferred. Entries will line up on Pine Street between ETMC and the Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church. All entrants must be in their assigned place and ready to move no later than 9 a.m. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. In addition to the parade, the pet show will once again be held during the annual fair. It is scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, in the fair arena. Children 8 and under, too young to show livestock, can practice for future fairs by bringing their dog, cat or other household pet for judging by the newly elected Fair Queen. All dogs must be on a leash and other pets must be properly restrained. The owners will be responsible for removing the animals from the Fair grounds immediately after the judging. The Trinity Community Fair Association is hoping for a record turnout this year, especially to reward all the participants for their hard work throughout the year, but also to show off the new addition to the arena, which will provide additional exhibit spaced and seating for spectators. The fair board also has voiced its thanks to this year’s sponsors of the belt buckles to be awarded to the top livestock presenters. Belt buckle donations include: Grand Champion Steer by 4T Feed; Reserve Champion Steer by 4T Feed; Showmanship Steer by Doug Page, Democratic Candidate for Trinity County Judge; Rate of Gain Steer by Cecil Webb, Trinity County Commissioner, Pct 3; Grand Champion Swine by Mike and Vanessa Tindall and Family; Reserve Champion Swine by Buddy and Sherry Johnson; Showmanship Swine by 4T Feed; Grand Champion Lamb by Romo’s Tex-Mex Restaurant; Reserve Champion Lamb by Julia McMichael; Showmanship Lamb by D.C. and Heather Musgrove and Family; Grand Champion Goat by Trinity Funeral Home; Reserve Champion Goat by Ralph Montemayor, Trinity County Sheriff; Showmanship Goat by Trinity Cleaners and Rankin’s Auto Repair; Grand Champion Fryers by Bennie Schiro, Trinity County Assistant District Attorney; Reserve Champion Fryers by Clothes n Time Cleaners.
