Village Notes: What’s happening in our community

Jean Eick
Special to the Bonanza

Celebrate Easter in style this weekend — under an umbrella instead of with your snow gear. Of course the big bunny could bring a little snow, and that seems to be all we are allowed. If you are eager to welcome spring to Tahoe, stop down at Aspen Grove to see the beautiful daffodils in bloom up against the building. That’s right, daffodils blooming in March.

A huge thank you to everyone connected to the Star Follies including everyone who attended. From Potlatch selling tickets to the lighting crew, congratulations on a great show. Thank you for entertaining us for so many years. We appreciate what you do so much.

The Rotary Club of Incline Village will host speaker G. Wayne Glass on Monday, April 1, at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center.

For Deals and Steals this week, you must attend the annual Community Egg hunt at Incline Beach for infants through 11-year-olds on Saturday, March 30. This is a free event for the children and it is worth watching as it is definitely our fastest event. It starts at 11 a.m. sharp and is really over within minutes. Go enjoy.
