Village Notes

It is time to experience St. Patrick’s Day at Tahoe Friday, March 17. Be sure to wear your green and watch out for leprechauns. And, it is true spring will arrive on Monday, March 20. Now the only thing we have to wait for is to see whether or not March will end with the roar of a lion!

The countdown is on to the 18th annual Incline Star Follies show Friday, March 24, and Saturday, March 25, at Incline High School. Shows will be at 6 and 8:30 p.m. both days, plus there is a special 1 p.m. Matinee on Saturday. The cast of 54 adults and 44 students have planned another amazing show. Tickets are now on sale at the Potlatch.

Our North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District will be hosting a Community Blood Drive from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 18, at the main fire station located at 875 Tanager st. Food and beverages will be provided courtesy of the Hyatt Regency Resort, Spa & Casino and Mofo’s Pizza. To make an appointment, please contact the Fire District at 775-831-0351, ext. 0, or visit http://www.Bloodhero.com and use sponsor code: INCLINE.

A few birthdays to celebrate this week: Kevin Weiss on March 19, Mary Blanchette on March 22, and Mary O’Donnell on March 23. Happy Birthday!

The Deal or Steal for this week is to break out your retro gear from the past 50 years and go up to Diamond Peak on Saturday, March 18, for Retro Ski Day. Hit the slopes and hang out in the lodge in your old wooden skis and woolen outerwear, 1970s stretch pants or neon onesies from the 1980s. A barbecue for season pass holders is from noon to 3 p.m. on the Base Lodge deck, weather permitting, plus music and special events.

As always send in your birthdays, anniversaries and news, along with the best deals or steals you can find, before 5 p.m. on Tuesday to jeanmeick@aol.com.
