The Sheriff’s Team of Active Retirees is looking for volunteers.
STARs are involved in a variety of activities throughout the year. In April, the volunteer group assisted at Lake Tahoe Community College during the Drug Store Project. Alongside members of the National Guard, local organizations, agencies and community members, STAR members staffed the command center, directed participants to their assignments, ushered sixth-grade students to the life-like scenarios that define the Drug Store Project, hosted in the cafeteria during lunchtime and performed other duties to ensure the project’s annual success. The event is held throughout the college campus and choreographed and coordinated annually by Lisa Huard. STAR members have been working with Huard since the project began.
STAR members also assist at the Lake of the Sky Airshow in September, Treat Street on Halloween and other local events, as well as patrolling El Dorado County Lake Tahoe region in service to the sheriff’s office. Women and men age 50 and older can apply to be a STAR at El Dorado Coounty Sheriff’s Office on Johnson Drive in South Lake Tahoe or by calling 530-573-3300 or 530-573-3000.
