To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we are launching a renovation campaign for our theater. If you’ve been here recently, you might have noticed that it needs a little TLC. We have received a generous matching grant from the Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area to upgrade our facility. To raise our matching portion, we are holding our 50th Anniversary Solid Gold Celebration on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 1 p.m.

Carroll County residents of all ages recently came together around a bonfire, sharing songs, s’mores, conversation and more, when Carroll Lutheran Village invited Girl Scouts to join them to celebrate Active Aging Week.
Today, much of the conversation in the first responder community includes “911 abuse,” responder burnout, and what to do about the growing epidemic of first responders and military veterans who are taking their own lives in record numbers.

Prepare for the last of life just as one prepares for his or her working career. All that we were in the first 65 years will then blossom in our next 10, 20, 30-plus years if we keep moving, keep learning, keep re-inventing ourselves, keep helping others, keep on keeping on.
A friend recently referred to Conestoga wagons as the tractor trailers of their day, and that is an excellent analogy. They were what transported huge amounts of freight throughout our region in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and figured prominently in its economic development.
To raise our matching portion, we are holding our 50th Anniversary Solid Gold Celebration on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 1 p.m. The artistically rich afternoon starts with lunch and musical entertainment. Baltimore Sun cartoonist Kevin Kallaugher, “KAL,” will teach us how to draw a caricature of a prominent 1969 character, followed by the Carroll County premier of “Apollo 11,” featuring never-before-seen footage and audio of NASA’s most celebrated mission. Tickets are $169, and the proceeds go to the theater renovation.
The 2019 Carroll County CROP Hunger Walk will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13, with registration beginning at 1:30 p.m. The well-marked 3-mile route begins and ends at Grace Lutheran Church, 21 Carroll Street, in Westminster with two rest stops at area churches and refreshments served after the walk.
On Oct. 26 and 27, the Saint Joseph Catholic Community (SJCC) will be celebrating Clergy Appreciation Day, when in each of the masses the attendees will be able to give thanks to the clergy at the church.
