Kudos & Kindness

To the editor:

The city of South Lake Tahoe Fire Department would like to sincerely thank both the locals and visitors of our community for their cooperation and safe behavior during the 4th of July weekend. We appreciate and commend everyone for not using personal fireworks this past weekend and being so vigilant in their participation toward keeping the South Shore safe from major fire and injury.

The cooperation between the celebrants and all the public safety agencies during this busy three-day weekend made this one of the safest holiday events ever. We’re encouraged at the continual support from the community for their commitment to fire safety at the South Shore.

Recognition is appreciated

To the editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Season for Peace and Nonviolence and Denese Schellink for acknowledging my work with Challenge Day and our youth. It was a very unexpected, however fulfilling, nomination.

Not only would I like to share my heartfelt gratitude, I would also like to thank them for their generous donations for continuing Challenge Day at South Tahoe Middle School. The money raised through their diligent efforts to create an awareness for peace and nonviolence will further support youth in receiving this life-altering experience.

Many helped after bike crash

To the editor:

Many thanks go out to all the kind men who helped our daughter, Tracy, when her bike hit some uneven pavement on Third Street and she fell.

Thank you to the men in the white car who stopped and asked if she was OK; to Rick from South “Y” Fireplace and Antiques, who offered her a chair and washroom, and gave her a cute bear keychain that she’d admired; and to the strong man who straightened her bike’s handlebars, and his friend who shared an encouraging word.

Tracy was able to ride the 3 miles home and is just fine. All these men seemed to appear out of nowhere in our time of need. They were all so kind, thoughtful and helpful. Thank you all.

Donation helps out nonprofit

To the editor:

Sierra Recovery Center would like to say thanks to the Lake Tahoe Gay & Lesbian Foundation for its generous monetary donation.

It has been a great pleasure to be associated with such a professional organization. The support that the Lake Tahoe Gay & Lesbian Foundation has given Sierra Recovery Center from their first fund-raiser has been rewarding and fulfilling for clients and staff.

The support is invaluable for a nonprofit agency in our small community.
