LAURINBURG — Trinity Child Care’s “Annual Country Fair” offered a variety of “country” themed activities to children and their families.
Children could be seen laughing on the hayride and tentatively saddling up on a pair of horses that were brought out to the center. The hayride was provided by Scotty Haux, who has two granddaughters that attend Trinity Child Care.
Another major contributor was Scotland County Humane Society. Melinda McMillan, a grandparent of two Child Care students,and her team brought prospective adoptees in the form of three dogs and one cat for the children to pet and play with.
The children rounded out their morning by picking out their own pumpkins from “Trinity’s pumpkin patch” while eating cotton candy that was made on-site.
The morning also doubled as Trinity’s Trike-A-Thon event that was founded as a partnership with St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital seven years ago. Each family contributed donations to St. Jude as a fundraiser, while their little ones enjoyed trike-rides along the paddock next to Trinity’s playground. Before this year’s event, the partnership has produced more than $13,000 of aid for St. Jude!
Located at Trinity Presbyterian Church on Blues Farm Road in Laurinburg, Trinity’s Child Care program offers care for children ages one to four, year-round.
