Concert to help repair historic Trinidad church

Holy Trinity Church

Holy Trinity Church

Trinidad’s Holy Trinity Church, built in 1873 and Trinidad’s second oldest structure, is the venue for a brass concert featuring musicians Dick LaForge, Phil Sams, Doug TrinidadNotesBoxHendricks, and George Epperson playing compositions by Bach, Beatles, Handel and Gershwin and more on Sunday, March 3 at 3 p.m.

The 140-year-old building needs some restoration work.  A suggested donation of $15 per person concert admission will move the effort forward.

There are only a few historic structures in Trinidad:  the 1871 Trinidad Head lighthouse; the circa 1890 Trinidad Trading Company; the Collins home on West Street; the circa 1900 Trinidad Art (Reicke home); the 1899 Trinidad Museum building; the 1917 Town Hall and the 1949 Memorial Lighthouse.

Dick LaForge, Phil Sams, Doug Hendricks and George Epperson will play a benefit concert to help restore Holy Trinity Church, one of Trinidad’s oldest buildings.

Trinidad School Art Exhibition at WCA

Evidence of the strong arts program at Trinidad School can be seen when Trinidad School’s Art Exhibition goes up at Westhaven Center for the Arts in March at 501 South Westhaven Drive.

Thao Le Khac instructs the students in a rich variety of mediums and styles.  The school hallways are often decorated with examples of the students’ work.

For the WCA exhibit, each student from kindergarten through eighth grade will have a piece of his or her art work selected.  The show will remain up through March and April.  A reception for the student artists, their families and the community is set for Sunday, March 10 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Trinidad City Council Vacancy

Residents in the City limits of Trinidad have an opportunity to serve the community by putting their name up for consideration for the vacant City Council seat vacated by Maria Bauman.  A sense of perspective, cooperation and responsibility, an ability to listen and a spirit of good are qualities in evidence in Council members. Check with City Clerk Gabe Adams at City Hall about this opportunity.
