Carrolls called ‘role models’ at community roast in Chapeau: There were a lot of laughs and a few lumps in people’s throats at Saturday night’s roast of Frank and Mardie Carroll in Chapeau. Two hundred fifty people took in the dinner and dance in the Upper Pontiac Sports Complex. They heard many a good story from family members and long-time friends of a couple who have obviously been well-known and loved in the Chapeau area for years.

One keynote speaker of the evening was Mardie’s youngest brother and one of Pontiac’s best-known sons, Dr. Wilbert Keon of the Ottawa Heart Institute. Dr. Keon praised Frank for his “impeccable integrity” in his years in the insurance business.
