INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The summer activities are off and running. And no the earthquake was not an official activity or part of the new Tahoe summer experience. It was just a little extra entertainment and conversation piece.
This week begins the Red, White and Tahoe Blue events with the barge christening on Saturday followed by a fireworks show. Remember everyone, this is just a dress rehearsal for the main fireworks on the Fourth of July. If you are still wondering what is happening around the village for Red, White and Tahoe Blue, visit www.redwhitetahoeblue.org to see a complete schedule, or check out the special section in today’s paper.
We will have an opportunity to have active duty military personnel and families in our village over this holiday and the local Incline Village/Crystal Bay Veterans Club will also be honoring all of veterans — past and present. For more information on veterans activities go to www.inclineseniors.com or call 775-832-1310.
There is still time to participate in the Incline Village Relay for Life. Volunteers and teams are still needed. For information go to www.inclinevillagerelay.org or call Linda at 775-842-7953.
Wendy Perrin of Conde Nast Traveler Magazine will be at the Tahoe Center for Environmental Studies on Tuesday, July 10. She will share Secrets Every Smart Traveler Should Know. This is a fundraiser for READ. For information go to www.READEvent.org.
The Community Table, presented by the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation will be held on Sept. 6. Information on tickets will be available in July at www.parasol.org.

This week’s deal is to purchase a rubber duck and be a part of the annual Red, White and Tahoe Blue rubber duck race on July 7. The local Rotary Clubs work so hard selling the ducks. Ducks can be purchased from either a Rotarian outside Raley’s or go online to www.redwhitetahoeblue.org. You could win first place of $1,000 and that is a steal as well as a deal.
As always send in your birthdays, anniversaries and news along with the best deals and steals you can find to firstname.lastname@example.org.
