Kows and Komputers – Why 2K?

With their tongues firmly in their cheeks, the members of Soroptimist International of Carson Valley are carrying out the “heading into a new century” theme for Carson Valley Days with their annual sale of Carson Valley Days buttons.

In the old, pre-computer days, men would have to sport beards and their female companions, wear their buttons, if they didn’t want to get “jailed.”

To get out of jail, they paid a fine.

In today’s politically correct atmosphere, anyone of either sex only needs to wear a button (cost: $1 now, $2 on the day of the Carson Valley Days parade) to keep out of jail. If you get jailed, you still pay a fine.

All money raised is used to support various community programs by the non-profit group of businesswomen.

Buttons are on sale at The Record-Courier, JT Basque Bar and Dining Room, Carson Valley Country Club, Presto Travel, Sharkey’s Nugget, Jethro’s, Lily Langtree’s, Nevada Sport Co., Laxague Feed, French Hotel, Western Title, First American Title, Stewart Title, A&H Liquor and Deli, Bently Nevada, HamDogs, Douglas County School District office, Carson Valley Inn, Abuela’s, Carson Valley Chamber, Edible Earth, Nelson’s Java and Jazz, House of Orange Antiques, Especially for You, Omohundro Co., High Sierra Detail, High Desert Fitness, Nevada State Bank, ClubSpa, Nutrition Unlimited, Nevada Banking Co., Changes Beauty Salon and Stratton Pharmacy.
