Hardrockers seek volunteers

The Tahoe Hardrockers, like the U.S. Marine Corps, are looking for a few good men and women to volunteer their services to the handicapped. The Tahoe Hardrockers have constructed trails around Lake Tahoe, viewing areas, causeways and changed campsites to allow a person in a wheelchair to enjoy the outdoors.

“Since we have worked for the past 10 years to accomplish these things we have pretty much nailed down the process. We have been asked to assist the Nevada Conservation Corps in building a 11/2-mile trail from Sand Harbor State Park to the Memorial Point rest area on State Route 28 on the east side of Lake Tahoe and work began June 18,” said Charlie Smith of the Tahoe Hardrockers.

Volunteers are needed for the project from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. five days a week. They may work anywhere from one hour to days or weeks and are covered by workers compensation insurance. Volunteers meet at 8 a.m. at Sand Harbor State Park on State Route 89 to catch the bus to the work area.

“We do have a 501(c) 3 nonprofit status and we gratefully accept all contributions of time or money. We suggest all volunteers maintain a mileage and expense log as these expenses are tax deductible,” Smith said.

For more information contact Smith at the Tahoe Hardrockers via any of the following: phone, (530) 541-4594; e-mail, info@Tahoehardrockers.com; Web site, http://www.Tahoehardrockers.com; or mail, P.O. Box 17942, South Lake Tahoe, CA 95151.
