Village Notes

Welcome December. Tahoe has put out the welcome mat with a nice white blanket and we are ready to celebrate the season of joy. Winter driving skills seem to be a little rusty, but I am sure they will get better as the winter continues and bring joy to all out and about on the streets!

The annual Holiday Concert from the Sierra Nevada College Choir is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1, and 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, at St Patrick’s Episcopal Church. Tickets are on sale at The Potlatch, Handmade at Tahoe, the SNC Bookstore or from a member of the choir. For more information call 775-881-7586.
