Kudos & Kindness

Barton Skilled Nursing Facility wishes to give a big heartfelt thank-you and a hug to our generous community in response to our Christmas celebration and gift giving. Wonderful individuals went above and beyond in their gifts and services. Many were our own hospital employees who would come down in groups to take tags from our Angel tree. This has always been the time of giving, but all of you took it to a new level and warmed all our hearts.

We have wonderful stories to tell of generosity. A 92-year-old woman sent in lap blankets that she had crocheted. A 7-year-old girl went around her neighborhood and collected cans for money to buy two residents Christmas presents. Businesses donated new clothes. High school and elementary kids made cards and came in to visit. We had dancers, carolers, piano players, preschoolers, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Kiwanis and wonderful church groups (loved that candlelight service) that blessed us beyond words.

A thanks to our own residents’ families and employees for bringing baked goods for our bake sale. The Tahoe Daily Tribune got the word out to everyone, and our fire department brought their Christmas truck and stuffed animals by.

We would like to thank all of you by name and give you a hug but there are so many there is not room enough. The list is endless and our words don’t seem to be able to express what is in our heart as we saw what all this did for our residents. So again, all we can say is thank you, and please know that the joy you brought was immeasurable.

New business off to good start

High Sierra Adventure Sports would like to thank all our local and out-of-town customers who have made the start of the winter ski, snowboard, and snowshoe season a success for our new family-owed business in South Lake Tahoe.

We would also like to thank Jim and Lisa of Rude Brothers Bagels for providing tasty treats and wonderful coffee for our customers. It’s been a big hit. So once again, a big thank-you to everyone in South Lake Tahoe for your support.
