PADUCAH – The Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center is thrilled to announce the eighth season of the Myre Series. The Myre Series was established in memory of Jane Carson Myre and in honor of Dr. Louis D. Myre, who were instrumental in the development of the Carson Center. The Myres loved all people, were benefactors for many, devout Christians, and ambassadors for Jesus Christ.
