Letter to the editor: Thank you for generous donations

My name is Marilyn Willis and I have lived in Alpine Meadows since 1989. I am a member of the Sierra Tahoe Chapter of The Association of peri-Operating Registered Nurses. On Oct. 10, we had a fundraiser for nursing student scholarships at the Edgewater Golf Club in South Shore.

Our chapter consists of operating room nurses from Tahoe Forest Hospital, Truckee Surgery Center, Incline Village Hospital, and Barton Hospital. We would like to recognize and formally thank the following businesses for their generous donations:

Double Diamond Jewelry at Squaw Creek Resort, Keoki Flagg Art Gallery at the Village at Squaw Valley, Tahoe City Kayak and Paddleboard, Uncorked at the Village at Squaw Valley, PlumpJack restaurant at Squaw Valley, PlumpJack Sports at the Village at Squaw Valley, The Villager Nursery in Truckee, Fat Cat Bar and Grill in Tahoe City, The Sports Hub in Truckee, and El Toro Bravo in Truckee.

The fundraiser event was a great success due to the generosity of these donors. The funds will go toward one or more educational scholarships to benefit local nurses.

Our members strive to educate our local community of the importance of well-educated nurses, primarily in the operating room setting. However, our scholarship will not limit a nursing student to only the operating room field, but any of the exciting areas nursing provides.

Don Rogers: How the ink rubs off


First there were the funnies, color on Sundays! My little sister and I shared them while our dad, lying on his stomach on the punee, read the rest of the paper remarkably undisturbed by one…
