  • Program makes free dresses available

    Editor:

    Free prom dresses are available for all girls at Carroll County High School. Cinderella’s Closet offers more than 4,000 dresses each year to juniors and seniors at no cost.

    They provide every need a girl may have. Should a daughter not be a junior or senior or wait until the last minute, don’t worry. We also have Operation Prom Dress help at the Relevant church.

    Please contact me at Carroll County High School, (502) 732-7075) if you have questions or want more information.

  • Boyd reminisces about childhood church services

    Thanks from me as a member of the Carroll County Animal Support Group to everyone who attended our chili supper Saturday night. We raised a record amount of money for this affair, with meal sales, bake sale and our silent auction items. So many in the community contributed to the silent auction and again, we raised more money through that this year than ever before. Our bake sale table was laden with scrumptious goodies created by volunteer bakers.   Mark Louden in the early part of the evening and Power Plant later on provided enjoyable music  that the crowd enjoyed.
