More than 30 Valley merchants and offices have the Carson Valley Day buttons for sale, and anyone planning to attend the June 9 Carson Valley Days parade should be wearing one or expect to be placed in the rolling Soroptimist jail.
Soroptimist International of Carson Valley is an international club with a focus on women and children. This is one fundraising event they use to help achieve their goals of helping the community. The theme for Carson Valley Days is "Irish Celebration," so the buttons are in keeping with that theme. Buttons cost $1 a piece prior to the parade, and on the day of the parade they go up to $2 each.
