Dinner and Mary Poppins 

Ian Ferrell will portray the character of Bert in Mary Poppins at Leeds Center for the Arts, August 10-August 19.  Ian’s groupies from Holy Trinity will be there to support him on August 11.  The plan is to meet at Hall’s Restaurant  located at 1225 Athens Boonesboro Rd. in Winchester, KY. at 5:00 p.m. and then on to Leeds Center for the Arts located at 37 N. Main Street in Winchester.  The play begins at 7:30 p.m.  Those that purchased tickets may pick them up at the box office. If unable to make it on August 11, there are other performances with ticket availability.

Superstition has it, that it’s “bad luck to say good luck on opening night” (or ever) and that we should say “break a leg” instead.   So, Ian, from all of us at Holy Trinity, “Break A Leg!”

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!
