Tahoe Truckee Sunshine Letters

On Sunday, June 6, 13 third, fourth and fifth grade girls from Incline Elementary participated in the Girls on the Run 5K at the Truckee River View Sports Park. This was the culminating event for these girls who worked hard over the last 10 weeks to prepare to run a 5K race. Girls on the Run is an after school program that combines training for a 5K race with education on healthy living and positive self esteem. Each girl is partnered with their own Sole Mate, a community volunteer who participates in the race with them. This is the first year that Girls on the Run was offered at Incline Elementary and it was a huge success with full enrollment. All of the girls and their Sole Mates had a fantastic time during the season. andamp;#8212; Renee Rintala

I had the best experience recently with a local business and would love to share it with the community.This is the second time I’ve taken my car to Quality Automotive and Smog under the new owner, Bill, and each time it gets better as they demonstrate how much they appreciate my business. It’s a delight to work with them andamp;#8230; they’re friendly, clean and do excellent work.I’m thrilled to have found yet another thing to love about Truckee!Best,Christine Hueber

I attended the andamp;#8220;Older Americans Month Celebrationandamp;#8221; at the Senior Center Saturday, May 8. The ladies of Plumas Bank were very gracious hostesses and the catering was really delightful. My friends and I enjoyed the experience and we are looking forward to next year. Hopefully, they will be in a position to do it again. Thanks again for such an enjoyable treat.andamp;#8212; Nancy Williams
