Donner Docks Cleanup Day this weekend

The first-ever Donner Docks Cleanup Day is scheduled for the weekend of Aug. 21-22, in an effort to clean up trash on the public docks and in the surrounding area. The Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District is hosting the event in an effort to help sustain and preserve the docks at Donner Lake for years to come.

To sign up, go the Truckee Community Recreation Center main office to sign a waiver and obtain orange bags. Then, pick up trash between your assigned docks, and drop off the trash at the lake’s boat ramp Dumpster.

It’s the district’s goal to make Donner Docks Cleanup Day an annual event, said TDRPD spokesman Kyle Jost. Call the district at 530-582-7720 for information.

Truckee attorney contributed to legal publication

Truckee attorney Brent Collinson has recently been published in “Strategies for Family Law in California,” a book published by Aspatore, a division of West Publishing.

Described as providing other family law attorneys with “proven business and legal intelligence from leading lawyers,” Collinson’s chapter addresses key qualities for attorneys in representing clients in California family law cases.

“It was quite an honor to have a request from West Publishing to contribute to this book so other family law attorneys can have a source from the 5 family law attorney-authors throughout the state that were selected to create this publication” Collinson said.

Collinson has been practicing law in Truckee since 1979 and is a partner with Jason LaChance. They can be reached at Info@BCJLLaw.com.
