Sunshines: Thank You Letters
A belated thank you to the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District paramedics who assisted me last July when I attempted a carpentry project and removed 3.5 fingers with a power saw. They took excellent care of me, but more importantly, they took care of my wife who had to put the fingers on ice while I laid passed out on the floor. After getting me on a helicopter to San Francisco, they returned to check on her and offered to wait with her until our son arrived. Also a big thank you to her co-workers at Hemmings and Jarrett who offered to leave work to be with her. Sincere thanks to Dog Gone Crazy who immediately made room to board our large dogs during their busy Fourth of July holiday schedule. The support from our community was wonderful and I give a high-four to you all. Thank you all againAlan ShattuckHomewood
The teachers of Truckee High School would like to thank the Alpine Meadows ski area and Doug Perini for their generous participation in our holiday Adopt-a-Family program. Alpine donated a day of skiing, full equipment rental and a day of lessons for three local teenagers who otherwise would not be able to afford it. The next time you plan to go skiing or snowboarding, please keep in mind those ski areas, like Alpine Meadows, who continuously give back to our local community.Patrick MooneyTruckee High School
The Rideout Community Center Committee welcomes the Tahoe City PUD recreation staff to Rideout. Having the staff on site allows the building to be open for extended hours with more recreation and community programs. We are very excited about how the participation and enthusiasm is growing for a multi-function community center.As the programs grow, we invite broader community participation in the work the committee is doing. We have begun work on a Rideout Community Center Master Plan, including helping to establish Rideout operations policies and creating a facility use plan that can help direct capital improvements at the site. The committee also hosts special events such as potluck dinners, dances and movies as fun, family nights out. Some areas of interest that are not well represented on the committee now are: young adult community or recreation needs, sports and health activities, and Tahoe City or West Shore business interests. If you have interest in any of these, or other community needs, please consider joining the Rideout Community Center Committee. Contact Bob Bolton at (530) 583-3796 x22 for more information.Sue Rae IrelanRideout Community Center Committee
The 2007 Community Christmas Senior Adoption program was a huge success due to the overwhelming response and support of the people from the Truckee-North Tahoe areas. We had nearly 100 adults adopted this year. A special thanks to the ladies of the Queen of Hearts organization and to Lauri Heath who coordinated their adoptions and also helped me with all the deliveries. Thank you two Bobs. To the Johannsens, Truckee High Interact Club, Tahoe Mothers Club and those who fulfilled multiple gift requests, my utmost appreciation. Well-deserved recognition to Jesse Griffin for her months of hard work at the Senior Center to assure each resident was included.Thank you to each and every one of you who supported this program. You have shown, once again, what a caring and giving community we live in.Patti BenaSenior Adoption Coordinator
2007 marked a new beginning for community holiday giving in the North Shore. The collaborative effort between North Tahoe Family Resource Center (NTFRC) and Tahoe Womens Services (TWS) proved to be a success. Through the Holiday Hope Program both agencies collectively served 85 families this year. This surpassed last years number by a large margin. The success of this seasons program is due to the great generosity of individuals and families in our community. We appreciate the time, money, and compassion that are involved in being a donor. This years 79 donors went above and beyond. North Tahoe Family Resource Center, Tahoe Womens Services and the benefiting families would like to thank each and every person who donated to the Holiday Hope Program. Cheers to you in the New Year!Jessica LinnKings Beach
