Incline Village community notes: March 30, 2016

The spring weather at Tahoe continues — a little snow, maybe some rain and of course sunshine. It provides lots of opportunities for activities. Remember that Friday, April 1 is April Fools’ Day and pranks do happen in Incline.

Attend the annual Sierra Nevada College Choir spring concert under the direction of Donna Axton, on Thursday, April 7, or 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 before the concert and at the door. For information contact Axton at 775-881-7586.

Tickets for the Incline Star Follies should go on sale in April. The annual fundraiser is Friday, April 22, and Saturday, April 23, in the Incline High School Theater. I will keep you posted with ticket information.

Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation has announced its annual food and wine event, the Community Table, will be on Friday, Sept. 9. Please save the date for this fun event at the Shakespeare Ranch in Glenbrook with a special guest chef. Watch for more details in April.

A big Tahoe welcome to Cathy, Mary Ann and Susan Ashworth. The ladies from Pasadena will be visiting at the Herron Estate starting Saturday.

I have a birthday to report this week: Bill Black on April 6. Happy Birthday! Also, a happy belated birthday on March 30 to Bonanza-Sierra Sun Sports Editor Sylas Wright!

The Deal or Steal for this week is the annual Dummy Down Saturday, April 2, at Diamond Peak. This is a local tradition and favorite event. Participants build a dummy on skis (or a snowboard) that gets launched off a big jump on Show-Off and spectators can view the action from the Base Lodge Deck. Sorry — no human dummies allowed. Go spend the afternoon on the deck and enjoy!

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
