On Aug. 29, Leslie Dugger, President, Soroptimist International of Truckee Donner (SITD), presented a $1,500 check to Truckee High School leaders for the Athlete Committed program.

The Athlete Committed campaign is about providing support to athletes, coaches and parents. This campaign urges athletes to renew their commitment to excellence. This is a commitment of personal responsibility, shared expectations and collective responsibility — to never lose their focus and never compromise on their values.

For more information about the Athlete Committed groups at both North Tahoe and Truckee high schools, visit the athlete committed pages at nthsathletecommitted.weebly.com or thsac.weebly.com.

The Soroptimist International of Truckee Donner holds monthly club meetings on the second Thursday of each month at noon at Zano's Restaurant (11401 Donner Pass Road) in Truckee.

All women are invited to join us as a guest by emailing info@sitruckeedonner.org. SITD hosts the "Oldest and Best" Wine tasting and Restaurant Faire each year, on the first Saturday of June and Soroptishop, an evening of wine, food and shopping featuring local artisans, on the third Thursday of November.
