Sierra College (Tahoe-Truckee campus) and the collegeand#8217;s newly formed SOAR (Sierra Outdoor Adventure and Recreation Club) would like to extend their sincere thanks to Safeway and Save-Mart grocery stores. Their generous contributions helped make the on-campus kickoff event a success!

Four years ago, Nick Cabral graduated Truckee High and asked me if he could work at Cross Roads Car Wash for the summer. Nick matured as both a good employee and a young man. He continued to work at the car wash to pay for his college education (computer programming) at Truckee Meadows College and UNR.

As a local business owner, I received countless positive comments about what a nice conscientious employee Nick was. When Truckee is filled with courteous employees like Nick, visitors will always look forward to their next Truckee vacation. Nick Cabral is moving on to Boise, Idaho where he plans to work for a computer company. Nick, you make both the many North Tahoe/Truckee residents and myself proud to have worked with you.

Thanks Nick and good luck with your future endeavors.

On behalf of the Adapted Physical Education Department of TTUSD, I would like to send out a huge thank you to the following three groups. First, the Optimist Club of Truckee for their donation towards the purchase of x-country ski equipment for high school and college-aged students with disabilities. Next, Tahoe Donnor Cross Country for their donation of multiple pairs of x-country ski boots. Third, to Gary at Sierra Nordic for offering a discounted price on x-country skis as well as for donating time and labor to mount bindings.

Thank you for allowing us to update our equipment. With it, youand#8217;ve helped students experience the fitness, recreational and social opportunities of x-country skiing.
