It is still nice and warm in the afternoons for hiking and walking around the village. Go enjoy before everything is covered with the white blanket. The weekend looks quiet so it will be a good time to get out.
From 4-6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21, attend the Estate Planning 2013 free community forum. The event is free, but please reserve your spot at www.parasol.org/reservations or call 775-298-0184. This is sponsored by Mike Menath Insurance and the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation.
Please plan to do the community pumpkin carve at SNC from 4-6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22, and be sure to attend the community wide Trails of Treats and Terror from 4:30-7:30 on Thursday, Oct. 24. The trail is from the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center to the IVGID Recreation Center over to Lake Tahoe School and ends at Sierra Nevada College. Things at the DWR Center are really starting to take shape now. Just be careful if you open a door in the center as you might let out a skeleton or ghoul. This year a new feature at the DWR Center is a wishing well and children are asked to bring donations to make a wish. All of the donations will all go to the Make A Wish Foundation.
At 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22, attend an informational meeting at the North Tahoe Event Center for volunteers interested in helping with the annual Tahoe Community Thanksgiving Celebration. To learn more visit email@example.com or call Meera Beser at 775-230-1066.
Just in time to get everyone in the mood for Nevada Day, The Ghost of Mark Twain will present a 90-minute program, “Nevada 150 Years Ago.” The event is on Friday, Oct. 25, at the Mark Twain Cultural Center and Toccata Guttman Music Hall located in the Village Center. As is always the tradition, bring your picnic basket and beverages to enjoy beginning at 6:30 p.m. For reservations call 775-833-1835. It is always worth the price of admission, $20, to hear McAvoy Layne share his wit and wisdom about Mark Twain.
Congratulations to Joe and Polly Wolfe. Last Thursday, they purchased a brand new Mercedes at the KNPB Aged to Perfection Event in Reno. Oh, do not expect to see them driving around Incline with the top down though, as the bright shiny Mercedes is only a mini-me replica and will be enjoyed by the grandchildren as soon as it is delivered. Way to go!
