    Trimble County Raiders teams gathered last month for the winter sports banquet.

    The dessert banquet was filled with reminiscing, laughter, conversation and everyone seemed to have a good time. For some,  it would be the last time everyone who participated in the boys and girls basketball teams and on the cheerleading squad this year would be to together in one room.
