INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. - Rain, rain go away. Now is not the time for rain, let's all get over to the Hacienda and fill the place for the Pray for Snow Party scheduled for Dec. 7. I think we need to start one earlier, like now. We need all the help we can get.
Did you participate in the Black Friday event? The Small Business Saturday shopping day here in the village was a great way to get out and see our local businesses. Our shops are filled with lots of friendly clerks, parking is easy and some even offer free gift-wrapping. It is all happening right here in our local shops. Go shop Incline!
