Hear ye, hear ye, volunteers needed
One of the biggest events on South Shore is the Valhalla Renaissance Festival. The year is 1580 and the action takes place at a country faire in Yorkshire, England. People can experience for themselves the flamboyant world of Renaissance England at the Eighth annual Valhalla Renaissance Festival by becoming a volunteer for the Tahoe Tallac Association. The first volunteer meeting will be March 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the Tallac Vista Conference Center on Sherman Way.
Volunteers will make new friends, learn about England during the Renaissance period as well as be a part of the event. All ages are encouraged to volunteer and it’s a wonderful way for families to get involved together.
The Renaissance Festival will be June 3, 4, 10 and 11 at Richardson Woods, Historic Camp Richardson Resort. There will be merchants selling their wares such as handcrafted jewelry, period crafts, clothing and historic weapons. Continuous entertainment of musicians, magicians, jugglers, country dancers, belly dancers and one-act plays take place at three stages inside the faire. Savory dishes, fine wyne and ale is always available and amusements and games such as archery, javelin throw and fencing will please any crowd. Children can take part in the children’s glade with plenty of games and crafts.
The event is sponsored by the Tahoe Tallac Association, a nonprofit arts organization, and Historic Camp Richardson Resort. Proceeds assist cultural arts programs of the Valhalla Arts and Music Festival sponsored by the Tahoe Tallac Association. Proceeds will also assist the U.S. Forest Service in restoring the Tallac Historic Site. For more information on becoming a volunteer for the Valhalla Renaissance Festival call Hilary Anthony at (530) 542-4166.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California on Monday re-opened enrollment for its state health insurance exchange, hoping more people will buy coverage now that the federal government is offering new assistance that could lower monthly premiums by $1,000 or more in some cases.
