The Finksburg Planning Area Council, an unofficial liaison group between the community and Carroll County, will host a "light-hearted, roundtable exchange" of stories at its monthly meeting Thursday, said Jim Johnson, council president and a retired construction worker who has lived in the area for about two years.
