Countdown to Westminster Fallfest: Access Carroll Charity Profile

Access Carroll is one of four charities that will benefit from this year's Westminster Fallfest.

Westminster Fallfest is just about here. The festivities will kick off this Thursday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m. with the parade on Main Street.

Each year Fallfest donates its proceeds to local charities. This year's charities are Access Carroll, Westminster Boys and Girls Club, Carroll County Youth Services Bureau and Carroll Hospice.

Access Carroll, Inc., is a nonprofit organization offering free health care to uninsured, low-income residents of Carroll County who meet certain eligibility requirements. Primary medical care is provided by volunteer physicians, nurses and other experienced medical professionals. According to the Access Carroll website, by removing traditional barriers to quality health care, Access Carroll strives to help patients maintain good health and learn to manage any acute or chronic illnesses.

After the parade Thursday night, Fallfest will continue with Midnight Madness on Friday, Sept. 23. During Midnight Madness, many stores in the Main Street area stay open late and offer special shopping incentives. Fallfest will run on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. and on Sunday from noon until 6 p.m.
