For the last six years, Carson High School has held an alumni night at the Carson-Douglas basketball game in which alumni are recognized and celebrated. It’s a chance for alumni to come back and visit the old stomping grounds, support the Senators and a chance for us to celebrate contributions and the lives of CHS alumni. The Alumni games will be held Friday against Douglas. The girls game will be held at 5:15 p.m. and boys at 7. Also that night, in celebration of their 40th anniversary, we would like to extend an invitation to all members of the 1975 State Championship Basketball team. We will be recognizing these players at halftime of the boys’ game. All alumni who attend the games that evening will be entered in a special raffle drawing for prizes.


CHS Future Business Leaders of America are hosting the annual Talent Show at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Carson City Community Center. FBLA would like to send out a special thank you to the The Hop & Mae Adams Foundation as well as the New Entrepreneur Network for sponsoring the talent show. The sponsorship allows the club to provide cash prizes to the winners of the show. Tickets the night of the event are $8 at the door. Many talented student acts are scheduled to perform. See you at the show.


CHS Choral Program is having their Madrigal Dinner at 6 p.m. Saturday. A Madrigal Dinner or Madrigal Feast is an American form of dinner theater often held by schools. It’s set in the Middle Ages and is generally comedic in nature. The meal is divided into courses, each of which is heralded with a traditional song. A play is performed between the courses and a concert of choral music concludes the festivities. There will be a silent auction. Please plan to attend and support your CHS Choral Program.

These community leaders will evaluate the plans and present awards/gift cards/cash to the best plans. The Shark Tank sponsors are Greater Nevada Credit Union, US Bank, and The Adams Hub. If you are a business owner/leader and would like to participate in judging these plans, please contact Mr. McHenry at
