Reasons to be thankful

Some things to be thankful for in Northwest Carroll: sunsets over Pipe Creek Cemetery, church bells ringing from the tower at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in New Windsor, watching the moon rise over the Uniontown Methodist cemetery, long walks or bicycle rides through Linwood, the Norway maple trees that canopy the road in Uniontown, the old-fashioned spirit of cooperation and giving that exists in the activities of our service clubs and churches, summertime fireman's parades and carnivals, recreation council programs that keep us fit and our kids active, Dottie Fritz's memories of Carroll "the way it was," and the farms that dot the countryside and the farmers who work them.
