Kudos & Kindness

The Family Resource Center held its third annual “Cinco de Mayo” festival on May 3 at Heavenly Ski Resort. It was a fantastic event, with well over 500 members of the community participating in the celebration of Hispanic culture.

We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to our event. Entertainment included Mariachis, folklorico dancing by FRC Children’s and South Tahoe High School groups, flamenco dancing, and excellent food provided by Lakeside Casino’s Taberna, Applebee’s, The Cantina, El Parque, Los Mexicanos, Sub Station Deli, and Taqueria Margaritas El Caballo Negro.

A hearty thank-you to the restaurants for their support of the Family Resource Center and a very gracious thank you to Heavenly Ski Resort for its generosity with the use of the facility, and all of the many ways they assisted in ensuring this event was a success. A special thanks to Keith Cooney for all his support.

Most of all we thank the community for participating and supporting this fundraising event, enabling us to continue to provide services to meet the needs of our community members.

Finally, thanks to the Tahoe Tribune for all the publicity, keeping the Family Resource Center in the eyes of the community.

Final moments were peaceful

A big heartfelt thank-you to all the wonderful people at Barton Skilled Nursing Facility, who took such great care of Raymond Cignac. You were outstanding in your kindness not only to Raymond but to us, his family. We will be forever grateful.

Also, special thanks to the ICU staff who did everything in their power to save him, and particularly to Dr. Jean Makris and Dr. Bruce Daugherty.

And finally, thank you Father Grace for leading us in prayer and making the final moments so peaceful. We could not have asked for more.

CHP helped with driver training

On behalf of the South Tahoe High School administration and driver education students we would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the California Highway Patrol for their involvement in the driver education curriculum.

The ice driving experience and the Start Smart presentation greatly enhance the student driver education program.

A special thanks to Jeff Gartner and Jason Nichols for the countless hours they have put in to help ensure that our students become safe responsible drivers.

Event promoted affordable homes

Saint Joseph Community Land Trust would like to thank all who participated in the early spring Dinner Out Fundraiser held at Baja Fresh.

There was an amazing show of support by all who attended, and it was good to get together with so many who cheered on the need for affordable housing here in Lake Tahoe.

Thanks to Baja Fresh for providing this opportunity for Saint Joseph Community Land Trust and other nonprofit organizations here in Tahoe to raise funds. This event will make a wonderful annual fundraiser and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
