Village Notes: What’s happening in Incline Village

Jean Eick
Special to the Bonanza

This week we officially welcome fall to Tahoe. But we really need to say goodbye to the smoke. I hope we can get the fires out and people can return to their homes so our smoke filled afternoons will come to an end. Thank you to all of our fire fighters and if it continues this weekend will not be very pleasant for all of the Ironman participants. 

Just in case your phone is not ringing already you need to know we are heading into another election season. Our local GOP is looking for volunteers to register voters, make calls and advocate for their candidates.

Learn more about helping at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Incline Village Library. They will have a table outside the Village Market on Mondays through Fridays to help legal residents of Nevada file address changes or party affiliations. For information, please contact Diana Jones at 775-833-1098 or Kaye Shackford at 775-832-5300.

Let’s all get out and enjoy the Washoe County Sheriff’s picnic on Sunday, Sept. 21 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Aspen Grove. This is a family event with lots of special features as well as food and a good way to learn more about our community resources.

There is still time to sign up for the Golf from the Heart Golf Tournament benefiting the Incline Village Hospital. The Hospital Auxiliary’s annual golf tournament is Tuesday, Sept. 23, and starts with a shotgun at 11 a.m. at the Champ Course. This annual tournament features lots of prizes and fun. To sign up call Norma at 775-830-2148.

It is time for Ronda to do the annual coat drive at Bar Bar Bar. Next time you go to the PO just drop off your donations and she will take care of the rest. If you have questions, just stop in at Bar Bar Bar and ask Rhonda.

Project MANA is hosting its second Foodie Event on October 17 at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center. This will be an interactive presentation featuring Paella.

Now is the time to put together a group of co-workers, family members or friends and join the annual Tahoe Family Solutions Bowl-a-thon on Saturday, Oct. 25. The fundraiser for TFS features lots of local celebrities bowling and is a good time no matter what your skill level might be. For information call 775-298-0004.
