Fundraiser for officer’s family shows community’s generosity

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the various businesses and groups who made possible, the benefit car wash for the family of Officer Greg Farnsworth, at Nevada State Prison, that was held May 23 and 24.

A special thanks to Classy Seconds, Goodwill, F.I.S.H., Sak & Save, and the Carson City Elks Club. Their contributions of supplies made it possible to carry out the car wash.

I would also like to give a special thanks to the community of Carson City. The good people of this city made it possible for us to raise almost $2,000.

Greg’s family can surely put this to good use.

It always seems that when there is a need, the people of Carson City, and the surrounding communities invariably answer the call. I am proud to live and work in such a community.

Once again, thanks to all of you for your support.

The family of Hugh Smokey Sr. extends its deepest gratitude for the outpouring of kindness and generosity shown during our recent loss. Your expressions of sympathy – in word and deed – are sincerely appreciated. Special thanks to those who honored Hugh’s memory by sharing your personal thoughts and stories.
