Well it's evident that Spring is upon us with the recent weather events we have had across Trinity County. I know that some folks suffered damage to their property and my heart goes out to them. I am happy to say I have heard no reports of injuries to people in the community. This shows that awareness is working in the community and I encourage everyone to stay informed as these Springtime weather events come through. Now a little about what is happening in the county...
Child Abuse Prevention Month... Every April the entire month is set aside to raise awareness and prevent child abuse. April has been designated Child Abuse Prevention Month in the United States since 1983. On the local level there are several outstanding agencies that help out with child abuse prevention and awareness.In addition, the courts in Trinity County take the issue of child abuse very seriously. So remember to think of the children as you wear your blue throughout the month of April.
Trinity County Farmer's Market... In the near future the farmer's market in the parking lot in front of the Trinity County Courthouse will be a reality. Our County Extension Agent, Armon Hewitt is putting together a committee to get the details worked out. I am very excited about this project and see it as a venue to bring local folks together as well as show people outside the community what Trinity County has to offer. If you would like to help out with this, please call my office or the County Extension office.
In closing I leave you with a quote from Albert Einstein, "Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value."
Until next time, God Bless!
