Birthdays to celebrate this week: Kathy Long and Sharon Kennedy on Sept. 2. Happy Birthday!
The best deal and steal this week is at Incline Village. Take a staycation for the Labor Day Weekend and play tourist here. So much to do not only in Incline but all around our area. Have you been on the V&T Railroad? Enjoy!
