PurposeDesignated a National Historic Landmark in 1968, the Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Ellicott City Station is the oldest surviving railroad station in the country. Built in 1831, Ellicott City (then Ellicott's Mills) was the first stop on the B&O Main Line, 13 miles outside of Baltimore, Maryland. The station was originally designed to handle freight, but eventually transitioned to also serve passengers by 1857. Although passenger service was discontinued in 1949, freight service continued until 1972. The station was preserved and restored by local preservation groups to continue to share the important role the B&O Railroad played in local industrial history.
ServiceTaking guests back in time, the Baltimore & Ohio Ellicott City Station Museum welcomes walk-in visitors Wednesdays through Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Fridays through Sundays, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., features exhibits and a gifts shop, and offers guided group tours, summer camps, rental opportunities and much more activities throughout the year.

PurposeEnriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity. Every day is an opportunity for Brookdale associates to deeply connect with people in a profound and personal way. For our residents, we provide comfortable lifestyles and caring environments, with opportunities to improve wellness, fulfill lifelong wishes, and stay connected with friends and loved ones. And for those seeking help and information about senior living, we offer answers to their questions and solutions for meeting the unique and individual needs of each resident and their family. It all starts with listening to and understanding the unmet needs of those we are talking with; their hopes and uncertainties for themselves or for loved ones. Then we partner with them to determine a solution designed to help enrich their lives. We believe that growing older doesn't mean the options for enjoying life have to shrink. Our philosophy is that we're all aging, but that should never keep us from living.
ServiceBrookdale's brand of Assisted Living provides rewarding lifestyles and comfortable accomodations combined with an exceptional blend of service, care and hospitality. With an impressive line of features and amenities, Brookdale residents enjoy life with all the support they may require. Carefully selected and trained associates do more than assist with activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing and dispensing of medications; they implement custom care plans designed to meet the individual needs of each resident.

PurposeSince 2001 Sandi and Matthew have been collecting funds every year that they then use to purchase Teddy Bears/ stuffed animals, and with the assistance of Santa and Mrs. Claus they deliver the toys to the Pediatric Oncology Units at both Sinai and Johns Hopkins Children's Centers in Baltimore. These 2 hospitals provide children of all ages with the needed medical care at a very crucial time in their young lives. We in-turn provide the families with a simple gift that carries them through a difficult time and beyond. Camelot West is also a good starting point for information on obtaining assistance in the community for families who are looking for support groups, government non-profits and Special Needs services. It is our Mission to give people in our community “A Hand Up not a Hand Out” and working with groups such as the Community Foundation of Carroll County, Get Connected and other non-profits in the community we do our best to assist those who need it.
ServiceOne of the many services we offer is sponsoring Santa and Mrs. Claus for the City of Westminster since 2012. Santa and Mrs. Claus can be seen in the Miracle on Main Street Holiday parade, the tree lighting and Santa's Treats at the Westminster Library. Children can visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus at their little Westminster House on the front lawn of the Library every Saturday 12-4pm. between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Parents may take their own pictures in a calm relaxed setting. Santa has also been known to have his picture taken with dogs, cats and even a rabbit or two. In 2018 Santa and Mrs. Claus started seeing families at the Carroll County Farm Museum every Sunday from 12-4pm as well. (No pets allowed at the Museum though) Santa and Mrs. Claus have been seen hosting Breakfast with Santa at the Carroll County Career and Tech Center, making Holiday decorations, attending holiday and birthday parties, along with reading stories to children at Nature Centers, Hampstead elementary School and other locations around the community. In 2020 Santa and Mrs. Claus joined the electronic age and participated in Zoom and TEAMs calls with the Carroll County Library and Sinai Hospital. They attended Drive-by Meetings with Santa and Mrs. Claus along with several other opportunities that allowed children in the community to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas. Santa and Mrs. Claus have attending Special events such as Sensory Santa hosted by the Carroll County Family Support Network for Children with Special Needs and Adaptive Parks and Recreation's Jingle Bell Hop both held at Carroll Springs Elementary School, Cookies With Santa at Hampstead Elementary School, and patronizing local restaurants such as O'Lordan's, Johansson's, Classico Pizzeria, JeannieBird Baking Company and tCup cafe in the Month of December.

PurposeCivil Air Patrol has a three-part mission that includes, Emergency Services, Aerospace Education and Cadet Programs. CAP volunteer members play a leading role in providing aerospace education and serve as mentors to more than 26,000 young people currently participating in cadet programs. Cadets pursue programs that develop leadership skills, advance the importance of aerospace and cyber technology and teach a sense of duty and purpose in community service. Civil Air Patrol, the longtime all-volunteer U.S. Air Force auxiliary, is the newest member of the Air Force’s Total Force. In this role, CAP operates a fleet of 560 aircraft, performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 80 lives annually. CAP’s 63,000 members also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. In addition, CAP plays a leading role in aerospace/STEM education, and its members serve as mentors to over 26,000 young people participating in CAP’s Cadet Programs. Visit www.GoCivilAirPatrol.com or www.CAP.news for more information. More than 1,500 CAP members serve in Maryland. Last year wing members flew 13 search and rescue missions. The wing was credited with five finds and one life saved. Maryland Wing flew 32 missions for the State of Maryland. Members flew 2,106 hours in all mission categories. Volunteers contributed services estimated at 4.6 million dollars.
ServiceCAP's Carroll Squadron cadet programs are structured leadership development programs for youth ages 12-20. Meetings are held from 7 to 9 p.m., every Tuesday in Westminster. The Civil Air Patrol is an aviation oriented volunteer organization where young men and women learn teamwork, leadership skills and have fun at the same time. The Carroll Squadron programs provide an opportunity for cadets to earn student service-learning hours as required for Maryland school graduation. Adult members can pursue interests in emergency services, as well as mentoring cadets in aerospace education and other cadet programs. For pilots, Carroll Squadron's Cessna 172 flies over 200 hours every year, most of which are paid for while our volunteers fulfill various Missions for America. If you have the skill and the desire to give back to aviation, we'd like you to fly with us. If you are interested in becoming a cadet or senior member, you are welcomed to attend one of our meetings for more information.

PurposeThe Carroll County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) was created pursuant to Article 66B of the Annotated Code of Maryland and the Zoning Chapter of the Carroll County Code of Public Local Laws and Ordinances. The BZA deals exclusively with land use cases. The Board hears and decides requests for conditional uses and variances. In addition, the BZA hears appeals from decisions of County officials and agencies concerning land use and zoning matters. Like a court, the Board hears evidence, takes testimony under oath, accepts exhibits and makes decisions based on all of the evidence presented at the hearing. The BZA has no legislative power; therefore, it can neither make nor modify the zoning laws or policies.

PurposeEverybody's Quilt Guild welcomes all members and visitors to our home on the Internet. Here you will find information about our organization.
ServiceAbout EQG History: Everybody's Quilt Guild began in October 1987 by a group of women who wanted to share their love of quilting. Guild members met in the individual homes of the members until they started growing. As the guild grew, it became a charter member of the National Quilting Association. Today, Everybody's Quilt Guild is still growing and has over eighty active members. Meetings & Membership: Everybody's Quilt Guild meets the first Wednesday of each month to conduct the business of the guild, engage in fellowship, and share quilting news and information. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. at Ascension Church on Court St. in Westminster, MD. Anyone interested in the guild is invited to attend a maximum of two meetings as a guest before becoming a member. Membership dues are $35.00 per year. A mid-month meeting is held on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm also at the Ascension Church. This meeting is open to all who wish to participate in additional guild activities. Programs & Workshops: Our monthly meetings are designed to educate members in new as well as traditional quilting techniques and to promote the art of quilting in all of its forms. In addition to our regular monthly meetings, the guild sponsors several hands-on workshops throughout the year covering a variety of quilting techniques and related subjects. Events & Community Outreach: One of the big events that Everybody's Quilt Guild hosts is a Miniature Quilt Bingo held every year in the spring. It is a fun evening for guild members and guests. The guild also hosts a bi-annual quilt show. The quilt show, "Fall Harvest of Quilts" is held in the the fall during odd numbered years. You can find date and direction information by looking on our Facebook Page. Year round, Everybody's Quilt Guild focuses on community projects in which the art of quilting is used to promote a worthy cause. Comfort Pillows are collected and donated to the Woman's Place at Carroll Hospital Center and other area facilities as needed. Everybody's Quilt Guild also supports Linus Projects, making quilts for hospitalized children, and we offer a scholarship to a Carroll County Public Schools' student who is going on to pursue a study in textiles. Fun Stuff: Show and Tell - This is a time to show your quilt, wall hanging, or clothing project that you have completed. No need to be intimidated, the guild embraces all skill levels from beginner to advanced. Member's Block Exchange - When you join Everybody's Quilt Guild your name is placed on a list. Every three months a few names are announced and a stipend is given to those members to purchase fabric. The member then puts their fabric and directions into kits and lets other members of the guild take and put them together to make a block. The blocks are signed before being returned and this makes a nice member's quilt. Block of the Month - Learn a new technique every month and a chance to win enough blocks to make a top.
EligibilityEveryone is welcome.
