  1. Holy Trinity is a CHURCH, NOT a school! The sign is promoting the PARISH festival!What's the problem with advertising something for the community to attend?!? There will be plenty of "public" school children attending that festival! Just think how high the mills would be if there wasn't a Catholic school to educate children in Columbia and those 150 children were in the public school system! ALL the problems in this town and you choose to focus on this!
