    The third Christmas wreath decorating contest and silent auction was held by Carrollton Federal Bank on Dec. 9 in conjunction with an open house.  The proceeds from the silent auction went to Relay For Life.

    All of the wreaths submitted for the contest displayed imagination and creativity. It was our honor to display the wreaths in our lobby. They were beautifully decorated and received many compliments by the public.

  • Girl Scouts appreciate support at holiday event

    Girl Scout Troop No. 337 would like to thank everyone involved in welcoming us to “A Christmas Carroll.”  Not only was our troop very successful, our girls and parents alike enjoyed themselves and we were profitable for our troop.

  • Donations make stone wall project a reality

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Port William Historical Society, many thanks to all of those business and people who helped us with our latest building project. As a result of their contributions the cemetery at Masterson House will be esthetically improved by the addition of the period-appropriate dry-laid stone wall. Perhaps more importantly, the graves within the cemetery will be better protected from Hwy. 42, which is now so close after its expansion. All of us who live and work in Carroll County can take pride in this preservation of local heritage.

    Way to go fellas, 8-2 is something to be very proud of. I also wanted to thank everyone who helped out in any way during the season.

  • Rotary raises $2,000 for local food pantry

    On behalf of every member of the Carrollton Rotary Club I express my sincere thanks for the community support and generosity shown at our first pancake breakfast benefit for the Carroll County food pantry.

    When Dennis Goff brought to our attention recently the dire need for food items at the pantry, there was no doubt that we would respond with a plan to serve our almost famous pancakes. 

  • Support appreciated for annual bake-off

    Editor:

    I would like to thank all of the generous people who entered the Vision of Sugar Plums cooking contest held at McNeal’s during A Christmas Carroll in downtown Carrollton Saturday, Dec. 3.

    We had an array of 63 beautiful desserts that were turned in for a chance to win a new range from McNeal’s. I could see the time and special attention the people put into their desserts.
