Christmas tree fund-raiser

To the editor:

On behalf of Truckee’s Boy Scout Troop 267, I thank the following businesses and individuals for their support of the Troop’s annual Christmas tree sales fund-raiser. Once again, our annual sale of trees was very successful, and will enable us to continue to provide a quality program for our scouts.

Thanks goes to Mountain Hardware for the use of their space for the tree lot, Sani-Hut in Reno for the shed, Tholl Fencing in Reno for the fencing, Doug Praetzel and Sierra Pacific Industries for allowing us to cut Christmas trees, Nancy Markson for storing the cut trees, Pacific Forest Products for the use of a flatbed truck to haul the fencing, Tom Dolley of Coppin’s Meadow Bed and Breakfast for plowing the road for us to get to the tree cutting area, and to Tim Groden for the use of his truck and trailer for hauling the trees.

We also want to thank all the wonderful people of Truckee, both full-time and part-time residents, who purchased the trees at our lot and supported the Boy Scouts.

Nancy Maass, Troop 267 committee chairman, Truckee

Thanks for pizza donations

To the editor:

A special thank you to Round Table Pizza in Truckee. Tahoe City Brownie Troop 381 would like to thank Ann Sauer for her generosity and kindness in the donation of pizza and drinks to our troop during the holiday season. Troop 381 sings at the Extended Care Center at Tahoe Forest Hospital during the holidays and then goes for pizza as a troop.

Round Table owner Ann Sauer wholeheartedly supported the efforts of our girls and responded very generously to our troop. We thank her for not only her generosity, but also showing our girls that the holiday season is truly a time for giving.

Cruisers Club made holiday fun

To the editor:

We would like to formally thank the Farside Cruisers Club for their generosity during the 2000 holiday season.

The Farside Cruisers Club donated $245 for special meals and events and chose names off the Angel Tree to provide gifts on Christmas morning for the residents at the Extended Care Center.

The residents appreciate all they have done to make their lives more enjoyable.
