In a grand gestuure of generousity, Kathleen Tavernier's Tahoe Lake Elementary second grade class donated to Toys for Tots Friday, Dec. 19. The children unanimously voted to forego the usual gift exchange, thinking instead of those less fortunate. The group trooped to the Tahoe City Coldwell Banker office, a Toys for Tots drop spot, on a snow day no less. "These guys made me so happy with the decision they made," said Tavernier. "They shared that they are going to really feel good on Christmas morning knowing a child is going to have a present."
