Kudos & Kindness

We did it! We are all in this together, and we did it together. I would like to thank everyone who donated to and attended Blackie’s Batwa Bash last Friday night at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center. The food was great, the presentations were interesting and informative, and a good time was had by all.

Many thanks to everyone at the Senior Center for their help and direction, especially John and Jody, and to Harry and Linda Van Dam of Dart Liquor and Tahoe Douglas Rotary. Thanks to all the businesses who contributed to the silent auction and, most of all, to you, my friends who support me and believe in my work in Africa. Thanks to you, all the money raised will go directly into my project. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A gigantic thank you to the gentleman and young ladies who helped me get my car out on Washoe Street in Meyers on Wednesday morning. I was high-centered in deep snow, and they were all very persistent.

It took an hour to free my car. A couple of them were late for work, but they helped me anyway. As always, this community helps each other out in a time of need, whether it’s a devastating fire or a minor problem like mine.

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

National Alliance on Mental Illness had a lot of help this year with donations for needy families and individuals in our community who deal daily with mental disabilities.

Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra took 29 names from one group at the Mental Health Clinic and gave each individual new items for Christmas. The South Lake Tahoe Public Utility Company took another 37 names from a different group and donated new items for each person. Middle School Club Live members collected grooming goods, as they have done yearly.

Not only did clients receive gifts, but they also received special caring, individual attention. NAMI South Lake Tahoe thanks you. We could not have met all these needs on our own.
