  • CAC volunteers at food pantry
  • All dressed up for Halloween
  • Make plans now to save leftovers for future meals to save money

    Hello once again my friends. I would love to say wow right now. Wow in that we are already at the holiday season. It seems like yesterday that I was writing about summer foods and grilling and light salads. Now we are talking turkey and ham and all the great holiday food traditions. Unfortunately, one of the traditions that seems to come with the holiday is breaking the food budget.

  • Giving to others

    Volunteers loaded up large boxes filled with individual shoeboxes that will be given to children around the world through the Samaritan’s Purse program. Organizer Stacie Darnold said Carroll County donated items and money for 619 shoeboxes. She thanked First Baptist Church for storing the items and McNeal’s Hardward for delivering the boxes to the collection center in Walton.
