Kudos & Kindness

To the editor:

The leaders and membership of South Tahoe Middle School Club Live would like to thank several people for their recent contributions to our club. First, during our fall “Make A Difference Day” clean-up of the Old Al Tahoe Pioneer Cemetery, a number of people made the event a great success.

We thank Roger and Tammy Miller, Kimberly Sweeney, Shelia Bennett, Korrine Butler and the management and crew from Jamba Juice for their fantastic drinks. We also would like to thank Les Wright for his recent financial donation to our club. Over the past eight years Mr. Wright has been a consistent supporter of our Club Live through our involvement with the Lake Tahoe Marathon.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank Richard Bennett and his staff at Rite Aid. His store has helped us through merchandise discounts which have greatly saved us money.

Many assisted ornament project

Each fall students from Lake Tahoe Community College provide new warm hats, gloves, jackets, snowpants and boots to many children in the Nevada and California schools who do not have warm winter clothing. It is a great program benefiting our students in the community.

A great thank you to local artists and community supporter Nancy Gardner, who believes strongly in the college and this program. She donated several hundred limited edition holiday ornaments to be sold with all the proceeds supporting the college foundation as it serves the Tahoe community and LTCC students.

We would especially like to thank Paul Bruso of Ernie’s Coffee Shop for supporting this project and selling so many ornaments. A gracious thank you also to Bert’s Cafe, Cork & More, Tahoe Country, Lakeside Landing and Sidestreet Boutique for selling the ornaments.

To the hundreds of people who supported the college and purchased the ornaments, thank you.

Publicity was appreciated

To the editor:

Thank you for featuring my March 2 performance at the South Lake Tahoe Library so prominently in your Feb. 28 issue (page A5.)

The performance was very well attended, demonstrating that there is great support for the public library in this community and that you have a very strong readership.

Donation will fund new facility

To the editor:

Sierra Recovery Center would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to Harrah’s/Harveys Lake Tahoe. They have provided us with a very generous monetary donation that will be designated toward our new facility. Our treatment facilities and transitional houses will benefit at a time when some would otherwise go without. The support of Harrah’s/ Harveys is invaluable for a nonprofit agency in our small community.

Sierra Recovery Center is a private, nonprofit chemical dependency rehabilitation facility. Donations from the community are essential and allow us to continue to provide services to those who are struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. Sierra Recovery Center strives to educate and provide opportunities, which enhance the quality of life for those affected by alcohol and other drug use.
