4th of July Parade

The 4th of July Parade was a huge success for Holy Trinity!  Not only did HT’s float win 2nd place honors but one of our parishioners, David Trimble, was quoted on the front page of the local News-Graphic.  “I think we always need to remember how fortunate we are to live in a country that is free. Today is a sense of pride, joy and celebration,” said Trimble.

There was a large number of participants from Holy Trinity that took part in the parade.  There were flag carriers, banner carriers, walkers, candy throwers, as well as those that rode on the float and the youth that rode in the truck.  The theme of the parade was “Happy Birthday America” and Holy Trinity represented that theme very well.  Thank you to all that participated.

A special thank you to Turner Summers who provided the wagon, John Worsham for use of his garage, Bryan Whorley who drove and pulled the float and provided a cooler of cold water and David and Corinne Trimble for furnishing the wonderful period costumes to wear and bandana’s for everyone to soak up the sweat in the 98 degree temps. It takes an entire church to participate in a parade!
