Oh joy the season of winter driving has arrived, and it is true — winter driving is a skill. Some have it and many do not. Please stay safe out on the roads.
Lots of fun is happening this weekend and everyone can participate. Friday evening is the kick-off event for the Incline Community Business Association Toy Drive. Stop at the annual Christmas Tree Village Mixer from 5-7 p.m. with a new unwrapped toy, and place it in one of the collection barrels. For information on barrel locations or to have an elf shop for you visit www.inclinevillage.com.
And the other big event happening on Friday starting at 7 p.m. is the Hacienda’s annual Pray for Snow Party. We need snow and this is your chance to encourage the “Snow Gods” to bless Tahoe this winter. Go participate in the merriment and bring on the snow.
