Trousdale Bank & Trust hosted its ninth annual Family Fun Day on Oct. 26 at their branch on McMurry Boulevard.

“We have a lot of activities for the children,” said Trousdale Bank & Trust President Glen Haynes. “We have bounce castles, bungy trampolines and a mechanical bull. We also have an antique tractor show. They’ll be having a parade. We’re just glad to do this. It’s a fun way to give back to the community.”

Several people set up booths selling handmade arts and crafts such as scarves, candles, stuffed animals and more.

Paul and Natalie Knudsen were there with their horses and carriage giving rides to all attendees free of charge.

“We enjoy doing this for the bank,” said Natalie. “It’s a lot of fun. We also use the horses to bring in the Christmas tree for the Christmas parade.”

Tennessee State Trooper Rodger White was there demonstrating the importance of wearing a seat belt. He used a simulator to show what would happen in you rolled your car going 30 miles per hour without a seat belt. The State Trooper’s goal is to get more people to wear their seat belt by showing what could happen if you don’t.

The Hartsville Lion Club was also there raising money for the less fortunate to help them get glasses. They were selling chili, hot chocolate, coffee and other concessions.

Live music was performed by Jenna Stafford, Country Line and Hannah Beach.
