Two Wapella Greats Celebrated


The Village Flag flies twice as high today, in honor of two of Wapella's finest each born January 7, albeit a few years apart. None other than our own EEP, tireless reporter and observer of the Wapella beat, and former WHS GAA basketball star, Teresa Toohill Carroll both celebrate another year as the Pride of the Wildcats today.

Happy Birthday Wildcats...but a quiz....what curious family thread connects Teresa Toohill to EEP? You have to make a trip outside of Wapella to connect this one, but it may be worth the journey.

I know EEP is related to the Carrolls, Holland-Carroll connection(don't know the exact relationship). Happy B-day to two great Wildcats!

Is it some connection via Don's World of Beef?

Thanks for the well wishes, Mod!

As for the trivia, IRBW is correct, the connection would be the Bloomington Carroll clan. My Grandmother Holland's (Ryan) mother was a Carroll.
