Halloween’s a’ coming so make a scarecrow with your children

Carson High basketball boys will shoot for the hoops at the annual “Beer and Brats” Saturday at the Carson Station Grill.

Sample beers and sink your teeth into a tasty bratwurst as you check out the silent-auction table. Rick Murdock, alumni of Carson High School, has made a donation from the El Dorado hotel and casino in Reno.

With Halloween coming soon, catch the Children’s Museum’s “Make a Scarecrow Day” Saturday. Bring old clothes, hats, gloves, scarves, overalls – whatever you feel your scarecrow should wear to frighten birds away. Also the museum will have a trick-or-treat event for children and parents. I will give more information next week.

If you can’t get to the Children’s Museum, go to Sprint Cellular Store the following weekend to make a scarecrow and enjoy some Roundtable pizza. Proceeds benefit Carson City elementary schools.
