Children’s Day June 2
Across the nation, thousands of parents and kids are gathering in early June to rally for children. The nationwide event, “Stand for Children,” hopes to promote the message, “together we can achieve solutions for our children.”
Truckee will have its own Stand for Children Day, June 2 at Truckee River Regional Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The theme of the local event will be kids, fun and the official proclamation of the Tahoe Truckee Children’s Bill of Rights.
Stand for Children Day will include free hot dogs, snacks, a kids’ carnival and a kids voting booth where children of all ages can step into a real voting booth and cast their nay or yea endorsement of the Tahoe Truckee Children’s Bill of Rights.
The highlight of the day will be the official community endorsement of the Tahoe Truckee Children’s Bill of Rights. The local chapter of the Sierra Nevada Girls Scouts will conduct a flag ceremony in honor of the Bill of Rights and the Truckee Middle School band will provide inspiring music by John Philip Sousa.
Officiating the Children’s Bill of Rights official proclamation will be Nevada County Superior Judge C. Anders Homer, Town of Truckee Mayor Don McCormack and Church of the Mountains Pastor Steve Johnson.
Nine different community groups will staff booths at Stand for Children Day.
“The Bill of Rights booths, staffed by community organizations, help kids understand the meaning of the Bill of Rights as well as help bring the document to life for children,” said Susan Randall, event organizer.
All activities and food are free. The Children’s Bill of Rights Ceremony will be from 12 to 12:30 p.m.

The past few weeks have felt choking. Every time I step outside, I feel like I can’t breathe. The walls that keep the smoke out seem to get smaller and smaller as summer crawls on.
