TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Tahoe League for Charity (TLC) held its July meeting at the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe. TLC members and guests enjoyed a tour of the facility and a delicious lunch.

Serving 1,500 youths annually, the Boys & Girls Club provides a safe, structured and positive environment for young people with life-enhancing programs, a professional staff, and daily fun activities available and affordable to all children in the community. The club is accessible before and after school, during holidays and summer vacation.

TLC has contributed $14,000 in grants to the club since it opened its doors in 1998.

Following the tour of Boys & Girls Club, TLC visited the Community House construction site to view its progress. The location will house satellite offices for Tahoe SAFE Alliance, North Tahoe Family Resource Center and Project MANA in an effort to create service integration and increase efficiency.

The next TLC luncheon meeting will be held on Aug. 12, 11:30 a.m., at Jake’s on the Lake in Tahoe City’s Boatworks Mall.

The August speaker will be Todd Borg, author of mystery thrillers set in the Tahoe Basin featuring detective Owen McKenna as exciting super sleuth.

Books will be available for purchase.
