With it's all-American look and feel, tabletop jukeboxes and authentic decor, it's so Grease Lightning. Got to love wholesome fun for the family and kids.

Paws in the pool to raise funds for park

The Carson Aquatic Facility's outdoor pool is hosting a fundraiser for Carson City's "Parks for Paws." I was definitely intrigued by this event from Kurt Meyers' e-mail. So instead of saying, "when pigs fly" I guess I need to say "when dogs swim in the Carson Aquatic Center." Now I wish I had a dog to participate in this fun event. This event will be fun for your dogs as well as yourself. Bring your pup down and raise money for the Parks for Paws Program. Oh, and it is recommended that a copy of the rules be picked up prior to the swim day.

WHO: Parks for Paws

WHEN: Sept. 19 at two times, 9 a.m. and 10 a.m

WHAT: The west gate will open for registration at 8:45 a.m. Dogs must have proof of all current vaccinations and must be at least 6 months old.

WHERE: Carson Aquatic Facility, 841 N. Roop St.

COST: Cost is $8 for one dog with a handler or $3 for spectators. No one younger than 12 years of age will be allowed.
