Congratulations to local golfers winning the Wine and Nine Event last week. Carol Johnson, Susan Herron, Susan Johnson, Terri Fitzpatrick, Danny Kerr and of course Lori (I can’t putt) Pommerenck won the event. Way to go.
More golf news — -congratulations to Dennis Griffiths for a hole-in-one on July 28 at the Mountain Golf Course. Still time to enjoy golf season.
Congratulations to Stacy and Ray Collins on a new healthy baby daughter, Riley, born Thursday, July 25. Congratulations to big sister Cameron too. Stacy is a marketing consultant for the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza and Sierra Sun.
Happy Anniversary to Elise Fett and Rob Lober. And Happy Anniversary to Aaron and Danielle Zendner on Aug. 3.
It is birthday time. First, we totally missed Chris Bryan’s birthday on July 22. Birthdays this week include: Kristen Ferrall on July 28, Steve Andersen on Aug. 2; James “JP” Peterson on Aug. 6 and Bob Croke on Aug. 7. Happy Birthday.
The best deal in the Village this week is definitely Wine and Nine. It is only $30 per person for nine holes of golf, delicious food and fantastic wines. It is such a deal that it sells out, so go enjoy one of the benefits of being a local.
