Incline Village community notes: The holiday season has arrived

Jean Eick
Special to the Bonanza

The holiday season is here and today, Thursday, Dec. 15 is the opening day at Diamond Peak! Be sure to watch for lots of special events to celebrate the 50th anniversary.

And Friday, Dec. 16, is the last day of school in Incline before the holiday break. Now, bring on the fresh powder and let the holidays begin!

The Rotary Club is selling Christmas trees in the Raley’s parking lot from noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Volunteering at the lot with The Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline members are scouts from Boy Scout Troop 37 and the Incline High School JROTC. Purchase trees, swag, wreaths and even mistletoe to support local schools, scholarships and youth groups.

Another great community celebration is the tree lighting from 4-7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, at the Chateau. Lots of other holiday activities will be available too.

Congratulations to Cory and Ryan Ritchie. They received the Spirit of Philanthropy Award at the Barton Hospital Foundation’s gala Saturday, Dec. 3.

Birthdays to celebrate this week: Judy Morrison on Dec. 17 and Don Morrison on Dec. 18. Happy Birthday!
