Carroll County Times article on C&A veterans giveaway

Great article today by Jennifer Turiano for the Carroll County Times about our $2,500 veterans giveaway for 2018. Nominations are open through Saturday night. “There was one fella [last year], and I don't want to give too much detail but he served and retired and he's part of the local volunteer fire department. He volunteers at the high school in the area, and right before we did this his wife had a stroke and was in a rehab facility,” Langmeade said. “He was driving — he didn’t have to, he wanted to — he was driving down there every single day to visit her, and his only vehicle needed a lot of work. He explained to me, ‘I want to be there for her when she wakes up every morning,’ and the vehicle just wasn’t reliable enough. It needed tires, brakes and exhaust.” After the work was completed, Langmeade

On Saturday, August 18th, 2018, we held our first Back to School Car Care Clinic at C&A Automotive in Eldersburg. Adam started the day with a young lady who was getting ready to hit the road for college. The vehicle was an older Honda Civic. We started by teaching Molly how to check the oil in her car. It’s a good thing, the Honda was 2 ½ quarts low on oil. This engine only holds Four quarts. Chances are if the oil was not checked before she left, the car would not of made it to school.

Adam and Molly spoke about how her car must be using oil and the importance of pulling the dipstick every other time she gets gas. Before we were done Adam put two quarts
