Announcements:

• Tuesday October 21, the Human Resources Office will have limited staff from noon until 5 p.m. The payroll, benefits and full time Human Resources staff will be in a planning meeting. The main office will be open, and phone calls will be answered. Regular business hours with full staff will resume on Wednesday October 22.

• Ingram Library will host workshops again this fall to support the Carroll County Empty Bowls fundraiser, which benefits the Carroll County Soup Kitchen. Please join us if you can and encourage your students to come!

On Wednesday, October 22, from 12-3 p.m. come out and help us make the ceramic bowls. The clay is provided, and volunteer workshop leaders will be on hand to help instruct anyone that does not have experience working with clay. We will be on the ground floor of Ingram Library in the Tom Murphy Reading Room.

So what’s the point of these workshops? Aside from being fun, they support a great cause and help us connect with the local community. The bowls will be donated to the Carroll County Empty Bowls fundraiser, held in February each year at the Carroll County Ag Center.
