Note from the President

Per our By-Laws, I appointed a Nominating Committee to come up with a slate of officers for 2019-20. The Committee is chaired by Corynne Courpas, and the members are Ellen Marble and Tom Scanlan They will submit the slate at our March Meeting, with the elections in April. If you have an interest in serving as an officer, or know someone who may be interested, please contact the Club. (Drop Mark a line at wils…@gmail.com and he’ll forward your info to the committee.)

I enjoyed my terms as your President, but it’s time for a fresh face and new perspective, so I am not a candidate for any office. But I’ll remain on the Executive Board as Immediate Past President. I’m sure the new EB will enjoy the support of Club Members as we do our part to help Democrats in Carroll County.

Have a Happy and safe New year.

– Frank Rammes


Humane Society campaign – complete!

The CCDC sponsored a December holiday donation event for the Humane Society of Carroll County.

We raised $250, which goes directly to the HSCC. There will be a ceremonial presentation at our  March 4 meeting, but the actual check has already been given to the HSCC. The proceeds will go toward spaying and neutering, food, toys, medical supplies, etc.  We are pleased to support our county’s essentially no-kill shelter.
