Truckee Tahoe Sunshine Letters

I have grown up in Tahoe and I never realized how close-knit our community was until I ran for Snowfest! Queen. In the process of selling tickets, I realized that almost everyone I asked was willing to purchase a small amount of tickets to contribute to the cause. I would like to thank everyone who supported me and the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association in this endeavor. I appreciate all the support I was given and it would not have happened without the wonderful support of our community.

Thanks so much!

Truckee AYSO would like to heartily thank three outgoing Board members for their years of service and boundless energy: Kelly Herrington, Patty LaBar and Patricia Schiessl. Truckee AYSO is run by all volunteers and without the dedicated efforts of people like Kelly, Patty and Tricia, our kids would not have the outstanding quality program that they do. Thank you so much! To learn more about volunteering with AYSO or playing soccer this Fall, please go to our website at or send us an e-mail at

As the only sports team at North Tahoe High School not to receive any funds from the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District, the North Tahoe High School Snowboard Team’s success would not have been possible without the help from our community in dollars, services and time.

In addition to coming in 3rd out of 33 high schools at the state championships earlier this month, the team had a great time. We would like to thank The Booster Club, Sawtooth Ridge Cafe, Sunnyside Marina and Storage, Shared-Treasure, Boresha Coffee, Porters Sports, Tahoe Daves, Squaw Valley Sports, Sunnyside Steakhouse and Lodge and especially, Vance Lura. Their support of the North Tahoe Snowboard Team is especially appreciated in these financially difficult times.

Thank you North Tahoe!

The Tahoe Community Nursery School and Director Laura Stout would like to thank the Tahoe Truckee community for their enthusiastic support of our snowmobile raffle fundraiser. The event was a huge success. Forty percent of our yearly budget comes from fundraising making our school affordable for everyone. A number of people also made private donations, for which we are extremely grateful. We would also like to thank all the local stores, restaurants and business that donated prizes to the raffle ” especially Syd’s Bagelry for hosting the event and Thin Air Motorsports for the snowmobile. Congratulations to local Squaw Valley resident Butch Macgiver, winner of the grand prize. For more than 40 years this community has supported TCNS and with your continued support we will be here for 40 more. Thank you. This year’s open house registration is on April 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the School. Call 583-3331 for details.
