Incline Village community notes: March 16, 2016

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Watch out for leprechauns if you are out and about, as I am sure some plan to celebrate until the wee hours of the morning. The college basketball season of March Madness is in full swing this weekend, and on Sunday spring begins. Since it is also Palm Sunday, it’s a perfect time to have a picnic at the beach.

From 4-7 p.m. Friday, March 18, at The Chateau, Chief Mike Brown of the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District will be honored at a community retirement celebration. The event is sponsored by the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District and IVGID. No need to RSVP.

Attend a free workshop on Parliamentary Procedure by Ralph McMullen, president of the National Association of Parliamentarians from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, March 19, at the Incline Village Library. Learn how to preside over and organize meetings, handle a motion, handle debates, utilize marketing and fundraising basics. RSVP no later than March 18 to Linda Smith at or 775-400-3700.

The Sierra Nevada College Choir, under the direction of Donna Axton, presents its spring concert, Puccini, on Thursday, April 7 and Saturday, April 9, at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church. Tickets are available at Potlatch and Handmade at the Lake in Incline Village, at The Store in Tahoe City or from chorus members. For information, contact Axton at 775-881-7586.

On April 22-23, at the Incline High School Theater, is the annual Incline Star Follies. Tickets will go on sale in April and once they are available information will be provided here.
