Incline Village community notes: Remember, the groundhog promised more winter

Jean Eick
Village Notes

Yes, the groundhog promised more winter, and it is happening at Tahoe! Sorry to all the locals that have hit the end of living in a winter wonderland and are ready for spring.

And it was bad timing for the airlines to start announcing fare specials from Reno this week as I think several residents, you know who you are, purchased one way tickets out of Reno!

Remember to adopt a fire hydrant, clean it off and post your photos on Facebook. Great way to help our friends at the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District.

Looking ahead to March, the annual SnowFest! Ladies’ Night Out Bunco Bash is Wednesday, March 8. This year’s event will raise money for the Gene Upshaw Memorial Cancer Treatment Center in Truckee, and for the family of Tyler (Ty Ty) Whisler, a 10-year-old local boy who is currently being treated in the Bay Area for a brain tumor. Contact Carol King for more information at 775-721-5205.

The 18th annual Incline Star Follies show is happening on March 24-25 at Incline High School. Rehearsals are underway and the cast is working hard to prepare for this fun event. As soon as I hear that tickets will go on sale, I will include that information.

Speedy recovery to Sherri Kleinman. Good timing to be inside!

One Birthday to celebrate this week: Indra Winquist on Feb. 28. Happy Birthday!
