  1. Carroll County Birthday Celebration at Grace Lutheran Church - Join HSCC on Saturday, January 14, 2023, to celebrate Carroll County’s 186th birthday!

These descendants of Carroll Countians organized to promote “an appreciation of the history, traditions and pleasant memories of Carroll County.” 
  1. PAWS to Read at Finksburg Library - Come to the library to visit with or read to a book-loving dog.
