John and Audrey Carson traveled to Manhattan last Monday and picked up a trailer load of tires for the Fire Department. Last Tuesday, John helped push wheelchairs around the Rolling Hills Zoo and Museum for the Long Term Care residents. On Thursday afternoon, the Carsons pressed apple juice for the LTC residents.
On Saturday, John and David Carson took a couple of tractors to the Chisholm Trail Days in Abilene. Visiting the Carsons Sunday evening were Chris Bell and friend Penny, plus some of Penny’s family. The little ones had a great time picking pumpkins out of the pumpkin patch. It was the first time they had done that and it was fun to watch.
