MAYVILLE - Each year a unique lawn mower run is held in memory of Jack Carlson to benefit Hospice of Chautauqua County. Carlson would often ride around the village of Mayville on his John Deere tractor and mow his neighbors' lawns whenever they needed for free. During these lawn mowing treks, Carlson would often stop at the American Legion Post 493. Soon, other tractors would join his in the lot. Carlson succumbed to cancer, but the fundraising event he inspired continues on in his memory raising dollars for Hospice.
