Book Chat

If you’d like to try out Trinity’s book club before it breaks for the summer, please join us in the Library on Tuesday, May 10, at 6:30 p.m. to discuss a classic: The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. We pick up again in September, and if there’s enough interest, a daytime session may be added. To express your opinion about this or to suggest books for consideration, please contact Kathy Maher at

Organizational Meeting

Saturday, May 7

10 a.m.

McLean Baptist Church

1367 Chain Bridge Rd.


A few McLean churches are looking to form a church basketball league for Fall and Winter 2016. Interested players (male and female, ages 19 –99) are welcome to attend the meeting and learn more about the process.

Trinity needs enough players to form a team and at least one team captain to liason with the league, manage communications with players and to provide Harriet with bulletin/newsletter announcements. If you want to be apart of a team for Trinity or if you want more information about the proposed league, please contact Harriet Latta.
