Off-road vehicle users sought for survey

The Nevada County Sheriffs Office is currently in the process of application with the State of California seeking a grant to establish an off highway vehicle enforcement and education program.

Nevada County has large areas in the Truckee area which are specifically designated for off highway use. These areas are for snowmobile use in the winter months and all other types of off highway vehicles in other seasons. In addition to specifically designated areas for OHV use there are large tracts of Forest Service, BLM and private land that are used by OHV enthusiasts.

The Sheriffs Office is seeking citizen input in the grant application process. County residents and those who use off highway vehicles within the Nevada County area are encouraged to contact Captain Ken Duncan at 265-1371, if they have ideas or concerns relative to off highway vehicle enforcement or education.

Air Affair tickets now on sale

On Saturday, July 7, the largest hangar at Truckee Tahoe Airport will be transformed into a World War II-style ballroom with live music provided by the Moonlight Swing Living History Big Band.

A memorable evening of dining and dancing goes from 5 to 11 p.m. The event’s sponsor is the Truckee Tahoe Airport Coalition.

The Air Affair Dinner Dance will become an annual fund-raiser for the Truckee Tahoe Airport Aerospace Scholarship Fund to award aviation-related scholarships to local students.

Tickets, at $50 per person, will be on sale Thursday, April 19, through any of the sponsor organizations or at the Truckee Tahoe Airport operations counter on the second floor of the airport terminal.

Last year’s event sold out early, so 25 percent more tables have been added. Buy your tickets early to avoid the rush. World War II dress is optional but encouraged.

For more information contact the Truckee Tahoe Airport District at (530) 587-4540.

TFH Auxiliary seeks volunteers

The Tahoe Forest Hospital Auxiliary has an urgent need for volunteers to help staff the gift shop and ambulatory surgery reception, to coordinate student volunteers, and to perform general clerical functions.

Anyone with a few hours to spare is encouraged to apply. Students over 15 years of age will find this an excellent opportunity to fulfill community service requirements and to give back to the Truckee/North Tahoe Community. Each volunteer will be placed in the department where he or she is the best fit and any commitment of time will be greatly appreciated.

The Tahoe Forest Hospital Auxiliary, founded in 1977, operates The Gift Tree gift shop and The Corridor Gallery, provides volunteer support for the hospital staff, and conducts school tours. For additional information regarding the Auxiliary, contact Colleen Iden, Membership or Carol Leamy, President at 582-3571.
