From the Chairman . . .
As an organization, the Carroll County Foundation continues to be blessed with the support of the community, a dedicated and talented Board and the many friends and donors who make our growing success possible. Once again, largely due to a generous donation from the John And Evelyn Ashton Preservation Association, we have been able to assist several causes in the county over these past few months. Most especially in these difficult economic times it has been my pleasure to see people continue to support and donate to the many funds and endowments of the Foundation. This reflects directly upon the giving spirit, the pride of community and the generosity of so many connected with Carroll County. To all of you I wish to extend my deepest gratitude for your continued support.
