TAHOE/TRUCKEE and#8212; The local nonprofit, Trails and Vistas, is looking for trail guides for the art hike held on Sept. 17 and 18 at Spooner Lake, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, Nev.

A trail leader is a high profile art hike position. Trail leaders are comfortable speaking in front of a group of 30 people and enjoy story telling.

In preparation to the hike, Trails and Vistas is sponsoring a breakfast workshop and#8220;Finding Your Voiceand#8221; with Deborah Kelly, marketing director of the Local Universe, on Sunday, July 24. Anyone interested in becoming a Trail Leader for Trails and Vistas in September, new and returning volunteers, is invited to attend this relaxed and educational workshop. Invite a friend to be a trail leader!

and#8220;Learn to tell your story. I believe we all have a story to tell. Learn how to find your voice, find clarity and intimacy with laughter and fun,and#8221; said Debora Kelly.

The breakfast workshop will be held Sunday, July 24, 9-11:30 a.m. at the beautiful Cedar House Sport Hotel in Truckee, a sponsor for seven years. Complimentary breakfast and workshop training will be free to all individuals interested in being a trail leader volunteer. If youand#8217;d love to help but public speaking makes you cringe, consider the role of the Caboose. The Caboose is the safety person and is partnered with a trail leader to hike at the end of the group during the hikes. During the event, a handful of people will serve as greeters and help get attendees organized. As the proverb says, and#8220;Many hands make light work.and#8221;
