Youth earn $61,705 from fair auction
Trinity Standard -

TRINITY – Once again, we had a smaller turnout of animals at the auction on Saturday. Regardless, this year 's 64th Annual Community Fair was still a success. A total of 44 animals and one cake were up for sale, netting local FFA and 4-H students a total of $61,705 in sales. That figure includes the "add on" dollars donated to individual students either before or after the sale to boost their earnings. At last year's auction, a total of 50 livestock projects sold for $63,150. The grand champion steer exhibited by Cheyenne Blake of the Trinity 4-H was purchased by Affordable Plumbing for $5,000. While the purchase price was up from the $4,800 paid for the 2012 champion, it fell short of the record $5,200 paid by the 7-11 Social Club for the top steer in 2009. Although there was plenty of rainfall this year as well, the fair and activities were not hit quite so hard. The parade started at 10 am and the day had started out beautifully. Saturday evening there was some lightning and rain that shut the rides down for about half an hour. The carnival crew allowed an extra half hour on the armbands to make up the difference. It seemed as though there were fewer people than years past, the carnival was still a better turnout than last year. In addition to the livestock entries, the fair included the annual queen's contest, the Lil' Miss September Pageant, musical entertainment and exhibits that included home baking, canning and art. All kinds of food and arts and crafts booths also were located around the Trinity Community Center grounds for the enjoyment of fair goers. In the 2013 Trinity Fair Queen's contest, Trinity High School senior Hailey Burke, daughter of Shane Williford was crowned as the winner Saturday. Other senior girls who competed for the crown were Sarah Birkes, Sarah Ortiz, Ashley Dobbs, Bambi Ackley, Hailey Pruitt and Laura Lopez. While the high school girls took part in the queen's contest, the Lil' Miss September Pageant hosted by Avalon Place Nursing Home attracted the younger crowd. The overall winner was Ashlee Smith who competed in the 6-9 age group. Winners in the 0-2 age group included Addison Oakley in first, Layla Cathey in second and Emmaleigh Shadbolt in third. In the 3-5 age group first went to Rylee Bennett, second went to Delaney Miller, and coming in third was Chloe Moser. Winners in the 6-9 age group included Ashlee Smith who came in first in that age group and was also crowned as Lil' Miss September. Coming in second was Kiley Hargrave-Batten.
