To the Editor:
On Sept. 15, 2012, the Carroll County Veteran’s Memorial, Inc. held our second Annual fundraising project. The main objective this year was for community awareness of the upcoming Interior Renovations Project. An Open House was held, to allow the public to view the “Vet’s Pool” as-is and to look at and ask questions about the rendering for the Aquatics Center, Conference Hall, and Veterans Memorial Hall. Other activities for the day included a free muddy obstacle course for children, a Chinese auction, bands during the evening and great foods all day.
The committee and Board would like to take this opportunity to thank the public for attendance and the many people and businesses that were involved in making this event successful. They include Dr. Mandal Haas, Tractor Supply, Auto Zone, Carrollton Country Flowers, Ace Hardware, Repros Printing, McCort’s Sporting Goods, Gordon’s Graphics, Tam O’Shanter Public Golf Course, Countryard Marriot, Wilkshire Golf Course, Oak Shadows Golf Club, the Army, Navy, and Marine Recruiters offices in North Canton, Andy Gonda, Ballard Jenkins, Tom Messler, Bryan Wright, Albert Woodin, the Carrollton Public Library, McFadden’s Insurance, Walter’s Barber Shop, Stark State College Carrollton Campus, Barber Shop on 9, Tonya Howell and “the Run for Rosie” team, the “Middle of the Road” and Friends bands, Eddie McLean and his “Security” team, the Bergholz VFD, the Carrollton Fire Department, the Carroll County Fair Board, Nichols Bakery, Chuck Pearson, Paul Vanmeter, David Whetstone, VFW Post 4120 Minerva, VFW Post 3301 Carrollton, local JROTC, the Carroll County Veteran’s Club, Inc., The Free Press Standard, the Mr. Thrifty, the Canton Repository, the many students from Stark State College and family and friends who volunteered, Bob Daily, Kevin Keyser, Nick Jackson, and Seth Lawrence.
