Watson Cabin combines centennial and North Lake Tahoe chamber mixer

In honor of this event, a summer-long celebration is planned. The kick-off will be Friday, June 19, when Watson Cabin will play host to a chamber mixer from 5 to 7 p.m., followed by a series of events. To learn more about this event, call 583-1762 or visit
