Intersection of conservation, business topic of Truckee meeting

Staff report

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Tuesday, Oct. 11, Good Morning Truckee meeting will feature two dynamic speakers on separate topics.

Lucy Blake is President of the Northern Sierra Partnership (NSP). She describes her work as “wrangling” her collaborators to protect the Northern Sierra from Mount Lassen to Lake Tahoe.

According to the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce, as founder and former president of the Sierra Business Council, Blake has years of experience bringing together groups who are staunch believers in the importance of conservation as a driver of economic health and quality of life in the most holistic sense.

A results-oriented business woman at heart, Blake is a testament to what can be accomplished when you have a big idea, a lot of grit, and it never occurs to you to take no for an answer.

Tahoe Truckee Unified School District Superintendent Rob Leri will be the other speaker.

“There is a lot to celebrate about what’s right in our district, our Tahoe Truckee community, and our world,” he told the Chamber. “We have tremendous support from our outstanding staff, parents, community partners, and from Measure A. Our commitment to academic success for all students is unwavering, and we continue to build even more pathways to possibilities in our district and at each of our schools.”

Good Morning Truckee meetings are open to the public. They are held the second Tuesday of every month at Truckee Tahoe Airport from 7 to 8:30 a.m.

Price at the door for general public is $12; Truckee Donner Chamber members pay $10, and it includes continental breakfast and raffle.
