Village Notes: What’s happening in Incline Village

Special to the Bonanza

We are only 29 days away from spring. We might as well look forward to counting down the end of winter and to seeing our spring flowers early this year. I am sure the flowers are confused as to when to bloom so it will be wait and see for our gardens.

The Tahoe Institute for Natural Science is offering a scotch tasting at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28. The tasting will include five scotches along with a four course dinner from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center.
