On April 2, the Carrollton Woman’s Club met at Pats’ Place on Seminary Street.
Eight members said the pledge to the flag. Co-hostess Carolyn Stout called the meeting to order and introduced the program chairwoman Karen Claiborne. Claiborne introduced the club members to a Jeopardy type game concerning information about the papal election. Members were split into two very competitive teams each picking questions from six categories. They learned a lot and had a fun time learning.
