Village Notes; What’s happening in Incline Village

Special to the Bonanza

Don't be fooled by the strange reports that winter is really going to make an appearance in Tahoe. It is a trick to keep us off the beach, and I suggest we all go to the beach and enjoy. Of course March is almost here, so we could see a miracle March.

Saturday, Feb. 28, is the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science scotch tasting. If you did not make reservations and still want to attend, contact Kirk Hardie at kirk@tinsweb.org or 775-298-0065. I know the deadline for purchasing tickets was earlier this week, but you can always ask.

From 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, everyone is invited to celebrate the Chinese New Year at Patterson Hall at Sierra Nevada College. For information about the event call 775-833-6465.

Ladies, do not miss the annual SnowFest! Bunco girls night out from 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, at the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach. This event supports the Gene Upshaw Memorial Cancer Treatment Center, WARF (the Wylie Animal Rescue Foundation) and COTA (the Children's Organ Transplant Association) for 12-year-old Tahoe resident Bode Everest. Tickets available at http://www.tfhd.com. For information, please contact Carol King at 530-546-7542.

From 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, is the Project MANA fundraiser, a four-course dinner by Chef Jean-Pierre Doignon at Le Bistro. Space is limited. Reservations can be made at 775-298-0008 or heidia@projectmana.org.

Tahoe Family Solutions will host a special presentation by Nando Parrado on Monday, Aug. 10, during the Monday night performances at the Shakespeare venue at Sand Harbor. Tickets go on sale in March.
