As the days grow longer and the sun shines brighter, it is crucial that we maintain the cleanliness and tidiness of our yards. With the increase in flea and tick activity during this season, keeping our yards mowed and clean becomes even more critical. Therefore, I want to remind everyone about this practice's importance in safeguarding our community's health and well-being.

Fleas and ticks are not only a nuisance, but can also pose significant health risks to humans and animals alike. By regularly mowing our yards, we can reduce the habitat for these pests, making our outdoor spaces less inviting to them. Additionally, a well-maintained yard minimizes the chances of encountering noxious weeds as well, which can harm our beloved pets and wildlife.

July is just around the corner, and I am delighted to remind you that Troy Old Timer's Days, a cherished community event organized by the Troy Lions, will take place on July 8th. This event promises to be a day filled with excitement, entertainment and a true sense of community. I want to thank the Troy Lions for their dedication and hard work in organizing this annual celebration.

The highlight of the festivities will be the much-anticipated parade, and I encourage all interested groups and individuals to register as soon as possible to secure their participation. Please call City Hall to find out how to register. In response to popular demand, this year's Troy Days will also feature a new addition—a food truck night! We have chosen a great selection of food vendors that will offer something for everyone! And as tradition dictates, the City will also host a lively street dance to conclude the day's celebrations. I encourage families and friends to come together and partake in this fantastic event. The street dance offers an opportunity for everyone to have fun, create lasting memories, and reinforce the sense of community that makes Troy so special.

Let us embrace the spirit of Troy Old Timer's Days and make this year's celebration an extraordinary experience for everyone.

Wishing you all a safe and enjoyable summer, and as always, I am proud to be your mayor!


Mayor Steve Corr

Get ready to celebrate some truly quirky holidays in the month of June! Did you know that June 4th is Hug Your Cat Day? It's the perfect excuse to shower your feline friends with affection and snuggles. On June 14th, we have International Bath Day, a whimsical reminder to indulge in a relaxing soak.


But wait, there's more! June 18th marks International Sushi Day, a delightful occasion to satisfy your cravings for this delectable Japanese cuisine. And here's a fun historical fact: On June 29th, 2007, the first iPhone was released by Apple Inc., revolutionizing the world of mobile technology. The iPhone quickly became a game-changer, introducing a new era of smartphones that combined sleek design, advanced features, and a user-friendly interface.

Join the parade! We extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you to be a part of the parade. Let your creativity run wild and show your hometown pride by decorating your bike, four-wheeler, tractor, dog, horse, truck, or flatbed. Better yet, gather your family, friends, or neighbors and create a stunning float that represents your true community spirit. We encourage you to join the fun and make this year's parade the most spirited one yet.


The excitement of Troy Days kicks off bright and early with the Lions' pancake and sausage breakfast at 6 AM in the City Park. Fuel up for a day filled with endless entertainment. The parade will make its way through the heart of Troy, showcasing the unique charm and character of our town.


Be sure to grab a delicious buffalo burger for lunch and partake in the various activities,

including the Show & Shine, raffles, and cornhole tournament. And that's just the beginning! As the sun sets, get ready for a family-friendly night filled with music, laughter, and dancing right on Main Street. The street dance will come alive with the energetic tunes of "REWIND," a live band that will keep everyone entertained. And when those hunger pangs strike, fret not! There will be a fantastic lineup of food trucks that will be serving up a variety of dishes, ensuring that there is something to satisfy every craving. If you would like to participate in the parade, pre-registration is available by visiting www.TroyIdaho.net
