The rain didn’t stop the Vaiden Beautification Committee’s political rally. It was held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 at the Vaiden Children’s Park. Several candidates running for election in Carroll County came out and spoke to those in attendance. The Vaiden Beautification Committee held the rally to give voters more information about local candidates before the August 6 Primary Election.
