TFH fund-raiser dinner features FDR
Tahoe Forest Hospice is planning its fourth annual Benefit at the Resort at Squaw Creek on Nov. 15. The gala event will include wine tasting, dinner, raffle and door prizes.
The highlight of the event, however, will be a talk by Richard Marold, performing as Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States. His portrayal of FDR has been described as “informative, nostalgic, and skillful.” Marold, a humanities scholar, is the editor of the quarterly journal, Cheyenne Mountain KIVA. Much of time and energy, however, is devoted to his continuing study of Roosevelt. Marold’s growing library includes more than 50 books devoted to FDR’s life and times. Marold is a regular participant on regional public radio and television, as well as performing for state Chautauqua, historical societies and corporate gatherings.
Hospice strives to support patients and their loved ones in coping with end of life issues and to honor patient-directed care. Our mission is “To provide quality, compassionate end of life care to our community.”
It is a challenging task, for its service includes Graeagle, Floriston, Verdi, Incline Village, Sierraville, Loyalton, Soda Springs and Emigrant Gap, as well as Tahoe and Truckee. Hospice includes an interdisciplinary group of specially trained professionals, funded by individual contributions, memorial gifts, grants and insurance reimbursements, as well as this annual benefit.
Franklin Roosevelt is an appropriate guest for this important evening. In 1937, he said, “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

I was inspired by the local students who track the science of climate change and yet do not give up hope. I loved their optimism that if we can alter our behavior, we can halt…
