Kudos & Kindness

Provided to the Tahoe Daily Tribune. Heavenly Ski Foundation thanks Kenny Curtzwiler and his crew for doing major roof repair and painting on the foundation building.

A huge thank-you to Kenny Curtzwiler and his crew for doing major roof repairs and painting at the Heavenly Ski Foundation building. He not only had his crew there from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., but he managed to get Meeks to donate many supplies including the paint.

Also, thank you to Patti Clothier and her girls, who all stayed until the very end. We sure tackled a lot on Saturday – painted the entire outside of the building, plus trim, stained the deck, sealed the rock, repaired the roof, dumped trash and cleaned the bathrooms. Everything looks awesome.

Armando Agulila of Deep Clean carpet cleaners cleaned all the carpets, donating his time and services. He is truly appreciated.

Also, in preparation for last Saturday, Jere power washed the entire building inside with Noel and Raquel, and the outside by himself. We will need to put a second coat of trim and paint the railings and steps. If you could help or know of someone, let us know.

Disaster drill was a success

I want to thank the South Lake Tahoe American Red Cross Disaster Action Team, the STARS members and all the volunteers for their help with community-wide disaster exercise on Oct. 5.

Your participation and support helped many agencies be better prepared in the case of a real disaster. It was a tremendous help and we could not have done it without you. Great job. Thank you all very much.

Event promoted non-violence

South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center would like to thank the nine local faith communities who attended our Peace at Home Interfaith luncheon on Oct. 6.

Representatives of the following faith communities attended the luncheon and were awarded a declaration of the nonviolence: St. Theresa Catholic Church, Unity at the Lake, Sierra Community Church, Presbyterian Community Church, Temple Bat Yam, South Shore Christian Assembly, Lake Tahoe Christian Fellowship. Calvary Chapel of South Lake Tahoe and Hope Lutheran Church.

More than 40 people attended the luncheon to discuss the problem of domestic violence in our community.

The faith community is a fundamental support network for the people who live in South Lake Tahoe. South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center is thrilled to know we have a new partnership with our faith community in making South Lake Tahoe a safer place for everyone.

We would also like to thank Tahoe Keys Deli for showing their support and providing lunch at a discounted rate. October is Domestic Awareness Violence Month.

Please join us in taking a stand against violence in our community.

Call the South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center at (530) 544-2118 for more information on how you can help.

Many helped out at Valhalla

Once again it is appropriate and a pleasure to thank in print the fine volunteers and professionals who made “Murder in the Renaissance Hotel” mystery dinner a success. The fundraiser to refurbish the floors of our beautiful, historic Valhalla was made successful through the efforts of our talented April Mai, who penned the mystery, and the cast of talented players.

The wine was generously donated by Dart Liquor, the salads by the Horizon, and Nestle’s Toll House Café by Chip provided cookies, which were complemented by dishes of Cold Stone ice cream, both stores in Heavenly Village. Lake Tahoe Catering Company also contributed to the fare t hat was enjoyed by a full house.

And, as always, the Tahoe Tallac volunteers play second fiddle to none. Bob and Kathleen, Bob and Jeannie and Donna and Bailey made an incomparable tea. Finally, a note of appreciation to Candy Curtis, executive assistant, who always goes beyond the call of duty.

Trip to New York was unforgettable

The STHS Girl’s Cross Country team would like to thank all the people and organizations that made their trip to New York City to participate in the Manhattan Invitational a reality.

Many thanks to Optimist, Kiwanis, South Tahoe Refuse and Tahoe Basin Container for their generous donations toward the trip. Also, many thanks to Jeff Tillman, Bob Novasel, Jim and Kay Haen, Francie Cole, Rankin Lynn and all the people who attended the car washes over the summer. The team represented South Tahoe well and had an experience they will not soon forget.
