Pleasant Hope, MO -- A local school bus driver is retiring after driving a yellow bus for decades through the Pleasant Hope district. Carl Fisher only missed two days behind the wheel in his 66 years of service. He's the father of Texas Tenor J.C. Fisher, who realized his Dad had more experience than the person named in the Guiness Book of World Records at the time. So, J.C. set the record straight and his father now holds the title for the most years driving a school bus.
The Texas Tenors are throwing a retirement party for the 82-year-old Fisher today at the Pleasant Hope Middle School. All proceeds will go to teachers and classrooms in the R-6 district. The event will run from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will feature more than a dozen Branson entertainers. A donation will get party goers BBQ, hamburgers, hot dogs, chili and dessert. Families can enjoy the live music as well as prizes, a silent auction and a car show that gets rolling at 10:00 a.m. For more information or to make a donation, please contact Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org

Tickets are on sale now. The show runs through December 2nd.
