Community Briefs: Auburn Ski Club, Holiday Hope, Holly ART

Auburn Ski Club members can’t wait for the season to start. They will be appealing to the Norse God of Snow and Skiing, Ullr, for a bountiful snow season with a bonfire as a request to the snow-god to “bring it on” Nov. 22 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the east end of Boreal Mountain Resort. Help them get the (snow) ball rolling. Festivities include a waxing clinic, arts and crafts, snacks, games and more, with hot dogs and hamburgers being served from noon to 1 p.m.

Bring the whole family, help bring in the snow and the new season, and find out about the Auburn Ski Club. Visit http://www.auburnskiclub.org.

Every year North Lake Tahoe residents show the true meaning of the holidays by sharing their time, energy, and kindness with children and families in need of help during the holidays.

Tahoe Women’s Services (TWS) and the North Tahoe Family Resource Center (NTFRC) are seeking donors and adoptive families for their holiday program through Monday, Nov. 24. Families can be matched in a timely manner, allowing gifts to arrive at their destination in time for the holidays.

Participate in the joint Holiday Hope Program and give back to the community in an effective way. Businesses, congregations, service organizations, families or neighbors are encouraged to think outside the box and adopt. Please contact Cecilia and Jessica at TWS at 546-7804, or Amy and Ana at North Tahoe FRC at 546-0952. The Holiday Hope Program could not function without the compassion and generosity of its donors.
