Incline Village community notes: Jan. 13, 2016

I am hoping that the snow machine will work again this week as promised. It is one thing we can never have too much of at Tahoe. And yes, the football madness continues as we get ready for the Super Bowl. People wandering around the village with frozen expressions are just Vikings fans. Tell them about Ullr Fest and they will be OK.

Remember that Martin Luther King Day is celebrated Monday, Jan. 18, and many local businesses will be closed. Also, more visitors will be around the village over the weekend, so prepare now.

Get discounted lift tickets for skiing at Northstar, Heavenly, and Kirkwood from Tahoe SAFE Alliance. For information, contact, call 775-298-0010 or stop at their office located in the DWR Community Non-Profit Center.

If you are interested in attending The Women’s Club of North Tahoe luncheon meeting at Noon on Monday, Jan. 18, at Sunshine Deli, reservations must be made to Lorri Waldman by calling 775-831-8039 or email by Friday, Jan. 15. The program for this event will feature Ann Valdes from Easel and Wine with an opportunity to participate in a collaborative painting and win this masterpiece at the end of the luncheon.

AAUW is meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20, at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center. The speaker this month is Dr. Andrew Whyman, psychiatrist and columnist, who will be talking about the increasing prison population in our country and the effect this phenomenon is having on women. Contact Kelly Werner at for reservations.

The annual Ullr Fest torch light parade at Diamond Peak is Friday, Jan. 22. Other events run from Thursday, Jan. 21, to Sunday, Jan. 24. Visit for information.

Congratulations to Lila Lapanja. She has been making news around the ski world. Go Lila!

We have birthdays to celebrate this week: Chet Curtis and Candace Healy on Jan. 14, Gina Erb on Jan 18, and JoAn Hagy on Jan. 19. Happy Birthday!

The Deal or Steal for this week is to purchase a mid-week pass at Diamond Peak and enjoy the mountain before the visitors arrive for the weekend.

As always send in your birthdays, anniversaries and news, along with the best deals or steals you can find, before 5 p.m. on Tuesday to
