We are close to the end of the school year in Incline and that means more people will be arriving here for the summer. Let’s all try to get some of the summer residents to be bear aware this year. I know we are not going to reach all of the visitors but we can all try to reach the visitors in our own neighborhood and help save a bear.
The weekend is already filled with activities. The Tahoe Biltmore is hosting a car, truck and motorcycle show in the parking lot at the Biltmore all weekend. Lots of other fun activities scheduled for the weekend too.
From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 8, be sure to attend the annual Classy Garage Sale in the Incline Village Hospital parking lot. The ladies of the Auxiliary always work so hard and the funds are all used locally.
Also on Saturday, June 8, the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science is holding a fundraiser, “Tahoe’s Natural Year: a Journey Through the Seasons.” The event is at the Lake Tahoe Golf Course in South Lake Tahoe and promises to be a fun evening. This is the organization that hosts the free Bird Walks at Aspen Grove and they just happen to have another scheduled at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 12. To attend the fundraiser or learn more about TINS visit www.tinsweb.org or call 775-298-0066.
