Kudos & Kindness

We would like to thank the community of South Lake Tahoe for its tremendous support after our home was destroyed during the Angora fire.

June 24, 2007, was a very hard time for our family, but through overwhelming amounts of kindness and support, we were able to overcome.

We have finally moved into our new home, which wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the community, and especially various individuals.

Our family would especially like to thank Lake Tahoe Unified School District, Lake Tahoe Community College, Embassy Suites, Sue Novasel, The VanDeusen family, Dr. Tapper, Bruce Daugherty, the Ricioli family, and way too many other people who, for lack of space, we are not able to name.

Thank you for all of the support, and we hope to return the kindness that was bestowed upon our family during this time of need.

South Tahoe Middle School would like to thank the Lake Tahoe Business Referral Network for its generous donation to our community clothes closet.

The South Tahoe Community Clothes Closet helps students in the district who may need clothing or school supplies throughout the school year. As our economy continues to decline, we know that many families are going to be served this year. Their donation will enable us to continue to help the students of Lake Tahoe Unified School District.

Thank you to all of the people in our Soroptimist Club of South Lake Tahoe for putting together the Pink Ribbon Parade on Sept. 6 to celebrate Jaycee Lee Dugard’s return. Thank you to all the many, many people who were involved. The city of South Lake Tahoe, BlueGO, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and South Lake Tahoe Fire Department, California Highway Patrol, Lake Valley Fire, Kathay Lovell, Sue Novasel, Brooke Laine and so many, many more for allowing us to heal as a community. Thank you to Fighting Chance.

Mostly, thank you to Jaycee’s family for never giving up. Now, for Jaycee and her family, and for many more of us in this community, the healing has begun.
