Treynor Days 2019 is almost upon us. The annual celebration of Treynor will run from June 28 to June 30.
Norm Collins and his wife Donna have organized the event for more than a decade. Norm Collins runs Collins Consulting Service, now located in TS Bank in Treynor, and said they took over the event from the city and helped turn it into a revenue-generator.
“We enjoy seeing the community come together and celebrate,” Norm Collins said.
Treynor Days profits helped pay for the Treynor Community Center. Norm Collins said they’re currently saving up a donation to be made to the planned Vision Treynor ballfields, splash pad or both. Treynor Days brings home about $6,000 annually.
Collins said the event was originally called Four Corners Days, named for the settlement that would eventually become Treynor.
Treynor Days serves as a Fourth of July celebration for the community. Collins said they hold it the weekend before to avoid conflicts with Fourth of July events in a number of surrounding towns.
Collins said as he and Donna help plan activities and put together the schedule, they work to make sure all groups will have fun.
“We try to have something for all ages,” he said.
