Don’t forget about Truckee Day, a community clean up day and block party scheduled for Saturday, June 4.

Volunteers should check in with their neighborhood champions at 8 a.m. The block party begins at noon at Truckee River Regional Park.

Check out Friday’s Sierra Sun for details on locations of neighborhood champions and other Truckee Day information.
