The Tahoe League for Charity met for the monthly luncheon/speaker meeting on Monday, March 10.

The featured speaker was Trinkie Watson, reporting on behalf of The Lake Tahoe Music Festival. Trinkie stated the festival will be in full swing for the summer of 2014 and performed by the Orchestra Academy under the direction of Maestro Timm Rolek.

All tickets will be $20 each with the exception of Schaffer’s Mill, which will be $50 including dinner. Purchase tickets at tahoemusic.org.

The festival is a Tahoe cultural treasure blending nature and music for lasting memories. This year experience music in the classic tradition from “Bach to Blues and Beyond.” Donations help finance the festival and support the youth music program. Mail-in donations may be sent to: Lake Tahoe Music Festival, PO Box 7, Truckee, CA 96160.

The Lake Tahoe Music Festival will be held at the following locations: Tuesday, July 22, Tahoe Tree; Wednesday, July 23, Sugar Pine Point State Park; Thursday, July 24, West Shore Cafe; Friday, July 25, Schaffer’s Mill; and Saturday, July 26, Skylandia.

The Tahoe League for Charity April meeting will be held on April 14 at Jake’s on the Lake in Tahoe City. The April speaker will feature the Truckee River Weed Warriors, a volunteer program led by the Truckee River Watershed Council.

Excursions such as “weed walks” educate the public on how to find, report and dispose of invasive weeds that are not indigenous to Lake Tahoe and Truckee.

These weeds damage water quality, out-compete native plants, degrade plant and animal habitat and increase the risk of wildland fire.

To make reservations for this month’s meeting, email Ellen Magnani at gilmagnani@aol.com. Potential members and guests are welcome. The luncheon meeting is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the cost of $17.
