Out & About Community Calendar Of Events & Activities

by Kim Riggs

Please do not forget about the Noon Rotary food drive for Advocates to End Domestic Violence. Just drive up to the Governor’s Mansion with your food donations.

The Carson Chamber of Commerce called again this year asking to help local children. To my great delight, I had just received a call from CASA Director Chris Bayer stating he had 50 children in need of Christmas adoption.

So the chamber stepped right in to help children in need from the Children’s Home. Larry Osborne said the chamber will continue with its tradition of supporting Salvation Army Toys for Joys program and Food for FISH. Thank you, Larry, and your whole staff in helping such worthy causes in our community.
