Last night, Sat. April 30, 2016, Caroline and I really enjoyed the
Historical Society of Carroll County Gala.

We joined Bernie Jones and his wife, and Charles and Virginia Harrison at
our table. We danced the night away at one of the better benefit events we
have attended in recent memory. We tip our cowboy hats to Historical
Society for a wonderful evening and to Becky Herrick and her husband for
being excellent hosts.

Thank you Del. Susan Krebs, Mark Krebs, and Commissioners Dennis Frazier,
and Stephen Wantz, and Kathy Zepp Wantz, Paul Zimmermann, for always taking
the time, often away from your families, in spite of extremely busy
schedules; to show - up at our community events.
Caroline, Grammy, Marian, and I joined many friends, colleagues, and
community leaders, and the fantastic staff of the Carroll Co. Public
Library for a celebration of Mr. and Mrs. Walter H. Davis’ contributions to
our community.
Could not agree more with what Del. Susan Krebs said on her Facebook page,
“Celebrated Davis Day at the Westminster library, honoring Walter H. Davis
who started the first public library in Carroll County in 1951. What a
legacy he left to Carroll Countians!”
A big thank you goes out to the staff and board of the Carroll County
Public Library for all your hard work on developing so many arts and
cultural community and social events for Carroll County; including folks
such as Kati Hoffman, Jennifer Boatman, Lisa Picker, and Lynn Wheeler.

Flashback: October 20, 2013: Carroll County firefighters respond to fire at Vetville in Westminster






Flashback: October 20, 2013: Carroll County firefighters respond to fire at Vetville in Westminster http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2013/10/october-20-2013-carroll-county.html

Carroll County volunteer firefighters from throughout the county responded Sunday afternoon to a laundry room fire at “Vetville” in the 100 unit block of Wimert Avenue, near Sullivan Avenue and Route 140 in northwest Westminster.

The complex, known locally as “Vetville,” dates back to 1946, when the housing units were built “by the government for the GIs who are attending or will attend Western Maryland College under the GI Bill of Rights,” according to a newspaper account in the now-defunct Democratic Advocate.

“A one-story construction, set up on cement blocks, with a brick-like celetex finish, they will fill the hopes of many GIs who plan to finish their education with their families. The apartments are made up of living room, two bedrooms, two closets and a kitchen, to be fully equipped with sink, stove and refrigerator…”

It is believed that the last fire occurred in Vetville on November 2, 2003, when, “A two-alarm fire … destroyed a four-unit apartment building in Westminster, but its eight residents, including two children, escaped without injuries,” according to an article in the Baltimore Sun.
