Grads will have Safe Night, thanks to donors

by Kim Riggs

Congratulations to all of the Carson High School graduates, and especially my son Nick Bacon. I wish all of the students a happy and healthy future.

Thank you to all the community members who donated money for Safe Grad Night and a big thank you to all the parents helping out each year.

School is out, and the Carson Library is keeping children busy with some great programs, including local favorite Coyote Puppet Theater. The show will be performed Tuesday for families. It’s an animal talent show in the library storytime room, allowing children to meet Coyote, Banjo Billy, Ludlow Latour and the stars of “Coyote’s Big Show.”

Saturday, the streets will be filled with great food to be tasted and judged as the best in Carson. The Taste of Downtown is the annual fundraiser for Advocates to End Domestic Violence.

You can stroll downtown, enjoying the starry summer night and restaurant samples while listening to bands on Third Street. All the proceeds go directly back to the shelter, and a big thanks to each restaurant that participates.
