The 2013 Carroll County Senior Event, themed “We’ve Been Working on the Railroad,” will be held from 4:30 p.m. until sundown, Thursday, Sept. 12 at Point Park in Carrollton. This year’s event will bring back old memories when the L&N trains were such a part of daily life in Carrollton, Worthville, Sanders and other surrounding towns.
All senior citizens from Carroll and other counties are invited to join in the festivities planned for this year’s event.
Patrons may bring dry or canned pet food or kitty litter to the library to reduce or eliminate fines for overdue and lost items through the end of August. Details are available at the desk. Proceeds will be given to Carroll County Animal Support. For more information, call (502) 732-7020

More than 200 bikes took to the road Aug. 18 for a poker run to raise money to help provide Christmas to local children who may not otherwise have anything at the holidays. Organizer Tracey Reynolds said more than $7,000 was raised through T-shirt sales, a split-the-pot raffle and door prizes.
