B&B salutes Tahoe/Douglas Elks Lodge

For the second time this year, the Tahoe/Douglas Elks Lodge No. 2670 sponsored a Bread & Broth Adopt A Day of Nourishment. B&B is grateful to the Elks Lodge members for their continued support of B&B’s goal of providing hot, nutritious meals every Monday evening to those who are experiencing issues of hunger and difficult times in their lives.

At the Feb. 2 Adopt A Day dinner, the Tahoe/Douglas Elks Lodge was represented by members Roger Barragan, Jim Planenig and Gary Wendt. All three members have served at their lodge’s sponsorship dinners over the years because “we care, we share,” said Wendt. After helping prepare the utensils for the dinner, the three dished out heaping servings of French bread pizza to 107 very happy dinner guests. The pizza was so good, 40 guests came back for seconds!

Bread & Broth would like to thank the Tahoe/Douglas Elks Lodge No. 2670 members for their sense of community, and as Roger Barragan said, their “always here to help” attitude. B&B is fortunate to have so many great volunteers, donors and sponsors to partner with us in supporting our program for more than 25 years.

Beautiful craftsmanship

I am writing this to thank a local craftsman/artist as well as to let the community and locals know about him. His name is Daniel Parks and he is new to Tahoe. His one-man shop is near the “Y” and his website is http://www.danielparksart.com

Using a redwood burl and mahogany legs he designed and built me a dining room table into an incredible work of art without the use of nuts, bolts, or screws. His craftsmanship and artistry will someday be award-winning. After viewing his website I suggest you ask to view the table he built for Ken, eventually a picture will make it’s way to his site. You will also be impressed with prices, they are more than reasonable. He had no problem working with the wood I supplied him and made it into his own design that turned out to be much more than I ever expected. Everyone in Tahoe should take a look at his website and/or stop by his shop and meet him.
