Sunshine letters: Kudos to community

Special to the Sun

Dog Day afternoon

On Sept. 10 North Tahoe went to the dogs! Thank you to all our four legged and two legged community members who came out to the first Dog Day in the Park. We all had fun at the carnival games, dog contests, information booths, raffle, food and entertainment while gathering bones and#8212; raising a whopping $11,000 and#8212; for our Placer County Animal Services Shelter in Tahoe Vista. Many dogs received low cost rabies vaccinations, licensing and micro-chipping and the adoption clinic perked up interest in dogs waiting for their and#8220;foreverand#8221; homes. Thank you to all the local businesses and organizations who were sponsors of Dog Day in the Park: The North Tahoe Recreation and Parks Department, the Wylie Animal Rescue Foundation (WARF), Northstar Deli, Taneva Auto Parts, the Tahoe City Rotary Club, Boy Scout troops from Tahoe City and Incline Village, the Kings Beach Methodist Church, Friends of the Kings Beach Library, Tahoe City SaveMart, Kings Beach Safeway, Jo-Mar, the Kohler family, the Willard/Landis family, A Party House, Sierra Boar, NTBA, TNTTMA, Kings Beach RiteAid, Ferrariand#8217;s Crown Motel, Sean Oand#8217;Brien/Changoloco Productions, Printart, Reite Design, 101.5FM and many more. Thank you to all the raffle donors, vendors, musicians and volunteers who made Dog Day in the Park not only possible but successful!

Hoedown a kick

Sept. 17 at the Glenshire Clubhouse, Truckee Girl Scout troop 116 sponsored a boot-stompinand#8217; good time for their sister scouts by holding a Hoedown dance party fund raiser for their troop.

Troop 116, directed by leaders Karen Peet, Marjory Prisco and Kaesa Anestad, would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the following whom without this event would have not been such a success!

First, we owe a big yee-haw to our fabulous line dance instructor, Laura Ford, who graciously shared her birthday with the girls, leading the gang in the eveningand#8217;s entertainment.

Thank you to Eileen Allen of Truckeeand#8217;s hip boutique, Closet Cowgirl, and Celeste Lynch, stylist, for their prize donations which were awarded for early bird registration.

Best dressed mother/daughter cowgirls received scrumptious gift baskets donated by Karen Brunnings of JuJu Z Treat Co.

Lastly, the Glenshire Clubhouse provided the perfect venue for our event.

The girls of Troop 116 are very proud of their efforts for which they received anew badge. They were responsible for the planning and dance instruction, and also served as extraordinary hostesses.

Thanks again for supporting Truckee Girl Scouts!

Thank you Nanci!

We wonand#8217;t be seeing the little orange Honda and#8220;Rebeland#8221; motorcycle darting around town this fall and the Sawtooth Ridge Cafe just wonand#8217;t be the same. Nanci Davis has left the area to start a new adventure and our loss will definitely be someone elseand#8217;s gain.

From the time Nanci moved to Tahoe City she began helping others. She helped in Randyand#8217;s and Jessicaand#8217;s classrooms and served on many different school committees; Nanci was P.T.O. President, Measure A Chairperson, and was frozen on many mornings as she helped the U.S. Freestyle Team at Squaw Valley.

The Wilderness Lodge was made available to North Shore area locals at a very reasonable price. Then came along the Sawtooth Ridge Cafe where all were welcome! Sawtooth hosted vocal shows, up and coming bands, slide shows, moving away parties, engagement parties, book signings, countless fundraisers and the home for the Tuesday night Tahoe City Rotary meetings. You name it, Nanci was available and there for us. We wish you well dear friend and look forward to your return to Tahoe even if it is just passing through.

We just couldnand#8217;t let you leave without a heartfelt thank you from all of us in this community.

and#8212; Friends and neighbors
