Signs of spring visited the Monday Carrollton Council meeting.

Barb Walton and committee members for the National Day of Prayer and Pat Roudebush, representing the Suburban Garden Club were in attendance with requests for council.

Walton presented Mayor Frank Leghart with a proclamation declaring May 2 as National Day of Prayer.  Committee members asked for and were granted permission to use the gazebo area on Public Square for their event.  The theme for 2013 is Pray for America “In His Name the nations will put their hope.” Matthew 12:21.

Events for the day will include prayer time, Bible reading and an evening gospel music worship service beginning at 6 p.m.

Roudebush asked council for funds to help with plantings the club will do at Kiddie Land Park, the Safety Building and adjacent to the McCook House.  Denny Roudebush, village administrator, told council he also had a request for funds from Carrollton Garden Club for plantings on Public Square and in front of the McCook House.  Council approved giving $200 to each club.
