Truckee Tahoe Sunshine letters
The music video film shoot on July 10 to 12 was a success due to the support and involvement of the Truckee Community and Town. A special thanks for those who went above and beyond goes to: Sugar Bowl Corporation, Truckee Hotel, Truckee Police and Volunteers, Casa Baeza, Totally Board, Moodyand#8217;s, Truckee River Glass, Truckee Variety, Bar of America, Stir Crazy Deli and of course the teen extras who spent hours in takes and re takes. The crew that came from Los Angeles to do the filming repeatedly mentioned what a wonderful town we have, and they are right!

Cyclist says thanks
On behalf of Truckee cyclists I would like to thank The Town, especially Town manager Tony Lashbrook, Public Works Director Dan Wilkins, and the Town Council, The Legacy Trail Foundation, East West Partners, Truckee Trails Foundation, and Truckee Tahoe Area Bicycle Advocates for the extensive class one and on-road class two bicycle trail network that has been established over the past several years. I would also like to thank in advance the Truckee Police Department for enforcing the No Parking signs near the new bike lanes on Donner Pass Road. There is a long way to go, but significant progress has been made. Our new bike lanes on Donner Pass Road near Donner Lake will provide a safe and scenic route and, when combined with the China Basin trail on the south side, create a nice loop. The freshly-paved Legacy Trail provides great access to the Regional Park, Ponderosa Fairway Estates and provides a view to the future when we will be able to ride safely from Donner Lake to Glenshire. The trail system throughout Old Greenwood, Greyand#8217;s Crossing, connecting to the Pioneer Center and downtown to Bridge Street makes for a great commuting route. If you have not checked out these new lanes and trails, get out and ride them, and if you see anyone from the organizations responsible for these great additions to Truckee, thank them!

Turning Point Tahoe
Turning Point Tahoe, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality and standard of living for people with disabilities, would like to thank the Truckee Noon Rotary, Bob Tilton, the Nevada County Fish and Game Commission and all the volunteers for creating an wheelchair accessible and shady space to catch big fish during the recent Kidand#8217;s Trout Derby. This is the second year in a row for this compassionate inclusion. Everyone, including our volunteers, are people who come from the heart. We appreciate your dedication to service. We want to give Bob Tilton a special shout out of thanks for casting a line for us to catch the big ones and Good Luck with the fishing competitions.

Deck Affair a success
The Glenshire and Truckee Elementary School PTOand#8217;s would like to thank all of those who helped to make the A-Deck-Affair event a smashing success. The event raised more than $30,000. This money will be put to good use supporting the programs our children love, such as assemblies, tutoring and field trips. At a time when school programs are suffering from cuts, this money will make an impact on each and every student and family. Special thanks go to the River Ranch for donating the venue and the food, and to sponsors: Clear Capital, Tahoe Staff, Mountain Hardware, Gunter Construction, Waltman Construction, Mountain Home Center, Plumas Bank, The Whitehead Group, Tahoe Donner, PIA / Sierra Insurance Assoc., The Real Graphic Source.
Finally, thank you to all our volunteers and to those who attended and opened their hearts and their wallets for the children of Truckee!

Thanks to Talbot
The North Tahoe Public Utility District would like to express its appreciation to Chris Talbot for his hard work in putting on the Tahoe Fest at the North Tahoe Event Center on July 8. Watch for the announcements and join us next year!
Due to the generosity of Chris and his sponsors, more than $1,400 was raised for the Playground Replacement Project at the North Tahoe Regional Park. The District is raising funds to replace the playground equipment at the Park that had to be removed because it didnand#8217;t meet current safety standards. Nearly $100,000 is still needed to complete this project, but with the help of many donors we hope to bring play equipment to the children of North Tahoe. We look forward to next year.
