Patriots Resist Rallies CANCELLED Until January (NEW)

Due to weather, holidays, etc., the Patriots Resist Rallies have been cancelled until after the Women’s March in January. The rallies will resume around January 26. STAY TUNED! And continue to RESIST!

We made great progress in the midterms!

Humane Society campaign (UPDATED)

The CCDC is sponsoring a December holiday donation event for the Humane Society of Carroll County.  This effort will go toward spaying and neutering, food, toys, medical supplies, etc.
Please send your checks, made out to “HSCC/CCDC”, to Mark Wilson, 1699 King Richard Road, Eldersburg, MD, 21784. before December 28. We are pleased to support our county’s essentially no-kill shelter.  Thanks.
