Dear Editor,
The Golden Age Retreat has been supported by the citizens of Carroll County since 1839. That is a 172-year legacy of care and support, and that is something we can be proud of.

It has been at its present location since 1867, but what you may not know is that the home no longer profits from the farm land that surrounds it. That land belongs to the county. So please, don’t think there is any oil lease money, land sale profit or farm rental lease money going to support the County Home. It is you and I the citizens of this county that keep those doors open.

This levy is for only $4.60 (increase) for property valued at $100,000. Carroll County citizens take care of our own and support our own when help is needed, and that is a small price to continue our legacy. Please vote in support of the Golden Age Retreat.

Kay Roof
Carrollton, OH
