Village Notes: What’s happening in Incline Village, Sept. 2, 2015

Welcome September. This weekend marks the unofficial end of summer. Take time to get in some golf, enjoy a favorite hike or have a beach day. Happy holiday, and please be safe and keep Tahoe safe. Please, please get rid of trash and leave nothing outside for Tahoe bears to eat. They are very hungry right now and trash is an easy meal. Remember, a fed bear is a dead bear.

You can still make a date with Mark Twain before summer ends. “On the Tail of a Comet” is a performance by McAvoy Layne and happens in the Living Room at Casey’s Round Hill Center next to Safeway at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 5. Seating is limited and reservations encouraged at 775-586-1822.

Join the The Knights of Columbus of St. Francis of Assisi church in Incline for a pancake breakfast to honor and remember Bob Mimiaga on Sunday, Sept. 6, after the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. masses. The proceeds will help two families in the parish whose daughters are currently undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia and ovarian cancer at Children’s Hospital in Oakland. This is such a special tribute and way to remember Bob.

Be sure to go to Aspen Grove from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 6 for a community yard sale and barbecue. The Rotary Club of Incline Village is hosting the event for the Butterfly Effect Thyroid Cancer initiative and for community service organizations and projects. Tickets will be available at the door.

Now is the time to purchase tickets for the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation annual Community Table fundraiser Friday, Sept. 11, at the Shakespeare Ranch in Glenbrook. Chef Roland Passot from San Francisco’s famed LaFolie and his staff will prepare some of his favorite French recipes for the event. Buy tickets at or contact or call Jean Eick at 775-298-0184.

No Birthdays to celebrate this week? Someone is going to be sad. Remember to send in birthdays, please.

The Deal or Steal for this week is to enjoy all of your favorite local establishments. The lines are gone and it is back to routine now until the snow arrives. All of our local village businesses want to see you. And I challenge someone to get a hole-in-one this weekend. We have not had one since spring.

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
