-A A +A

The Family Readiness Unit of the Carrollton National Guard Armory is selling yellow ribbons to be displayed in front of homes and businesses throughout the community in honor of the deployed unit and its members.

Ribbons are $5 each; larger custom ribbons also can be made. The money will go toward sending care packages to the soldiers while they are deployed.

A 50-yard bow made by Kathy Meadows and donated by Milene McCall and her daughter, Asilene Boram, is on display in front of the Carrollton Armory on Hwy. 227. The ribbon honors unit member Sgt. William Boram.

To buy a bow, call McCall at (502) 525-3356 or send an e-mail to her at mm101@msn.com.
