Participants are being sought for the Trimble County Fair Hymn Sing, which will be a highlight of the fair activities on Senior Night, Thursday, July 9, according to fair board member Debbie Perry.
The hymn sing is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. and continue through 9:30 p.m. at the Trimble County Park.

Senior citizens, ages 62 and up will also be admitted free with a clip out coupon from The Trimble Banner Fair Guide, published last week.
A special blood drive is being held on Tuesday, June 30, in memory of Trimble County High School student, Christopher Goodin.
This is the second year the school system has hosted the blood drive in Christopher’s memory. He passed away two years ago, at age 17, after battling cystic fibrosis.
Carla Goins works in the Trimble County School system and is helping to coordinate the blood drive. She remembers Christopher as one of Trimble County High School’s “great students” and says hosting this annual drive is a wonderful tribute to him.
