Books read, donated to Winn; Candlelight Walk set for Friday

Members of Carroll County Animal Support donated 14 books to Kathryn Winn Primary School’s library Monday, April 11, as part of the local celebration of Kentucky Week for the Animals. The books teach about how to care for pets and the importance of adopting shelter dogs and cats.


Principal Gerda Wise received books from CCAS members Robin Caldwell, left, Executive Director Tammie Crawford, center, and Victoria Meister.

The books were purchased with a grant from North American Stainless. Before the books were donated, volunteers, including Kara Skirvin, at top, read them to students in each classroom.
