75th Potluck Dinner, Memory Swap at Trimble Cemetery

  Email   Print

Here's one of those community traditions that makes this such a perfect place to live and raise a family. On Sunday afternoon, July 21st, right after church--neighbors will get together at the old Trimble Cemetery on West Trimble Road, just out Halls Hill Pike.

This will be the 75th time that community has gotten together for the annual potluck dinner and sharing memories under the grand old tree. Organizers say, just bring a chair and get ready to enjoy fellowship.

This event started back in 1938, and has been held on the third Sunday in July for seventy-five years.

As one follower put it, "It began about 200 years ago on a high hill in northeast Rutherford County. There was a Cumberland Presbyterian Church and cemetery named Trimble. The church disbanded around 1960, but a cemetery association was organized to maintain the ground."

It was noted that the Sam Nipper family has maintained the cemetery since 1965. And the annual third Sunday in July "potluck dinner" grew from all of this.

WGNS encourages you to share the great stories about your community. It helps us all realize how fortunate we are to call this home.
