  • Historical society seeks new members

    Editor:

    The Port William Historical Society will be hosting an open house/membership drive on Oct. 15, from 1-3 p.m. at the Masterson House on U.S. 42.

    The society has funds thanks to the generosity of Carroll County Fiscal Court and Carrollton City Council. Funds are also generated through membership dues and donations.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank a few individuals and groups that made my competition at The National Sweetheart Pageant, representing Kentucky, a success.
