The nominator of this week's COW writes, "When Ed Leswig became the Salvation Army's Carroll County coordinator in 2004, he became responsible for all its fundraising. Having started with $19 in the bank and no funding from the national group, Ed has done an amazing job. At the 42nd Silver Tea at the Crescent Hotel on Dec. 4, Ed will be greeting guests and thanking them for their generous support. The proceeds from the tea will go to the Carroll County Unit of the Salvation Army. We salute this remarkable man for his passion and vision as he serves the needy in Carroll County.
