* A fine gesture on the part of the Westminster Riding Club was the presenting of a check to the Carroll County War Memorial Fund Committee in the amount of $130.36, the proceeds from the Carroll County Spring Horse Show, sponsored by the club in May. -- Democratic Advocate, June 15, 1945.

75 Years Ago

* The annual motorcycle gypsy tour will be held Sunday, June 20, and promises to be the largest and best ever held. The start will be made from this place at 8 a.m. and proceed to Frederick via Woodsboro, and from there to the historic Harper's Ferry. There, on the Virginia side of the Potomac along a cool roadside . . . and amid a true gypsy atmosphere, ample refreshments in the form of good sandwiches and ice cream will be served. -- Union Bridge Pilot, June 18, 1920.
