TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. – TAHOE TALKS offers the brightest and shiniest stars in our community speaking about their contributions to a world based in happiness, respect and love. Listen to new ideas that will change your world and our community.

This Wednesday, Feb. 27, 6:30 p.m. at For Goodness Sake in Truckee, enjoy talks by Susie Sutphin and Susie Alexander. If you were one of the lucky ones to hear Joel Salatin at the Squaw Valley Institute event, you will want to hear about the Tahoe Food Hub. Susie Sutphin is changing our world with local food growers, growing food locally, and developing the local “food shed.”

Susie Alexander is changing lives by changing our view of creativity and what it has to do with keeping a healthy mind, body and spirit. Susie teaches us in a gentle and kind way how to explore creativity and our ability to get it down on paper.

“I have always loved the TED.com talks broadcast over the Internet. One becomes privy to the most mind-expanding ideas from people across the globe. I knew we had a population of creative minds right here in Tahoe. I wanted a platform to show off these leading edge, creative thinkers to our community. So I started promoting TAHOE TALKS,” said Deb Kelly, organizer of TAHOE TALKS. “People are interested … it’s about great minds sharing ideas and creating an organic network for our community to resource when needed.”

“Our community is filled with minds eager to share new views of our world from the foodies, farmers, the amazing artists, gifted writers, talented athletes, brilliant minds of technology and I am very excited about having the high school crowd share their ideas and visions,” Kelly added. “We have ecologists, parachute flyers, nutritionists, photographers, champion athletes and financial minds all making a significant impact on your world. I invite you to experience a TAHOE TALKS and get to know the amazing people living right here in your community.”

TAHOE TALKS is a time to share new ideas and discover the great people in this community. Join the first event Feb. 27, 6:30 p.m. at For Goodness Sake, 10159 Donner Pass Road in Truckee. TAHOE TALKS is a free community event. If you would like to speak at a TAHOE TALKS contact Deb Kelly at 530-448-0774.
