The Reinholds Station Trinity Chapel is holding its annual summer festival on Saturday, Aug. 6, at the chapel located along Route 897 in Reinholds.

The public is invited to attend the celebration, a day filled with exhibitions by well-known local artists and craftsmen. Food by the Schoeneck Lions Club will be available along with baked goods. Admission is free and there will be music throughout the day in the chapel.

The chapel has been in existence since 1898. It was designed as a religious center and as a meeting place for the community. The Sunday School remained active through 1984. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Proceeds from the event help maintain the structure.
