What’s happening in our community

Jean Eick
Special to the Bonanza

As we turn the calendar to August this weekend maybe some of the issues in our roundabout will end. It seems some folks do not understand a roundabout is to keep traffic moving. It has been very challenging lately so drive carefully if using the roundabout. It could be very interesting under the blue moon on Friday night!

Please remember that our bears are very busy right now as they heard about El Niño and want to be prepared. A couple local bears spent last weekend behind bars until they promised to move out of town. Please help them stay safe in our village.

The Lake Tahoe SummerFest concerts start this weekend and offer another great summer activity.  Visit tahoesummerfest.org for information and to purchase tickets.

The Incline Village Library has lots of fun programs coming up. Please visit online at http://www.washoecountylibrary.us for more information or stop at the library and learn more.
