Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County hosted a roundtable discussion with Rep. Geoff Davis Nov. 10. During that discussion, which lasted for 90 minutes, issues facing the Champions coalition and community on the local level were discussed, as well as some of the initiatives coming out of his Washington D.C. office. During the discussion, Rep. Davis stressed to the community that he has never seen an initiative for D.C. that worked if it wasn’t owned on the local level.
The Nov. 1 meeting of the Carrollton Woman’s Club was held at Pat’s Place on Seminary Street.
The program was provided by Grace Angotti, Home Life Chairman.
Angotti brought Christin Herbst, the new agricultural/4H Extension agent who spoke to them about the importance of family and how important her family had been to her. Both her father and grandfather had been Extension agents in Adair County.
As I write this column, it is Veteran’s Day. Since this is a food column, it causes me to stop and reflect on all the service men who have sacrificed for our country, and the many holidays they have spent away from their families. As we gather with our families this Thanksgiving, let us not forget those who are not able to be with us and to share the wonderful meals we are so blessed to eat.
