Well the calendar and the weather seem to be telling us summer is coming to an end at Tahoe. I am sure the rain will end soon and it really is helping us by providing the moisture we need right now. Just plan to enjoy the beach later in August.
We do have lots of events happening around the village this weekend. If the weather does not cooperate, check with all of the outdoor events you plan to attend to see if they have moved to an indoor location or if it will still be held.
The Incline Village Relay for Life is on Friday, Aug. 8, and Saturday, Aug. 9, at Preston Field. The theme is a Beach Party, so let’s hope we do not see a beach at the field. There is still time to put together a team or just stop at the event. To learn more, go to www.RelayforLife.org/InclineVillageNV or contact Aimee Giller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 775-828-2210.
On Saturday, Aug. 9, the Mark Twain Cultural Center and Toccata Guttman Music Hall in the Village Center will feature the Northstar Chamber Players with Donna Axton on piano. For information or tickets, email email@example.com or call James at 787-602-2121.
Sunday, Aug. 10, is Tahoe’s Connection for Families annual Teddy Bear Picnic from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Aspen Grove.
