A record crowd attended the Carroll County Animal Support’s annual chili supper held at Family Worship Center Saturday.
The event raised more than $4,500 to benefit the homeless animals in Carroll County. The event was renamed “The Nelda Vannarsdall Annual Chili Supper.” Vannarsdall passed away last year, leaving a huge void in the organization’s fundraising activity.
Ingredients for the chili and sandwiches were donated, and the food was made on site. Baked goods were donated from a number of people and organizations.
Since this column falls just after President’s Day, I decided to continue with my topic from last week on focusing our former presidents Washington and Lincoln.
I mentioned in my previous column that Lincoln sometimes had a problem even remembering to eat. He ate when his wife, Mary, encouraged him, but was usually so engrossed in problems with politics and power, that he often forgot to eat unless it was put in front of him.
