Community asked to show pride

The North Tahoe Business Association is offering Kings Beach residents an opportunity to show pride in their community and make the streets shine at the third annual North Lake Tahoe Clean Up Day on June 2.

“The goal is to pick up litter and create a sense of community,” said Pam Jahnke, executive director of the North Tahoe Business Association in a written statement.

“This is a great opportunity to give back to your community, get things cleaned up and have fun with your friends and neighbors.”

Volunteers will meet at the conservancy lot on the corner of Highway 28 and Coon Street at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 2, for registration, doughnuts and coffee before setting off to the beach, Highway 28 and the back streets of Kings Beach with garbage bags in hand.

The morning’s trash-collecting will be followed by a community barbecue celebrating the event with volleyball and live music featuring the Rusty Strings.

“It’s just being a part of the community,” said Jahnke.
