Carson City is a small city in which to live. Our residents take great pride in their homes and lawns. Most homes have flower gardens and/or ornamental trees to help beautify their neighborhood. Neighbors look after each other and offer a helping hand to each other whenever needed. Volunteers man the Community Food Bank with area churches taking turns each month to work there. Another group of volunteers organize the summer festival, Frontier Days, held the first weekend in June. A very active Lions Club helps with many volunteer activities.
