Grads will have Safe Night, thanks to donors
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.”
