TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — On Sept. 21 Peace Day was celebrated in festive fashion in Truckee. Despite a last-minute move indoors, the unexpected downpour didn’t put a damper on the cheerful event. Amid performances from children’s choruses, Truckee High Envirolution Club, InnerRhythms, Danny Sturtevant, and Angele and the Wildwood Band, attendees visited nonprofit booths and made arts and crafts, such as peace flags.

The annual Truckee Tahoe Peace Award went to Geri Meyer of Tahoe City, who gracefully represents the spirit of peace in our community.
