HEROs host dinner

On March 16, Bread & Broth’s dinner guests got a double-treat at the evening’s dinner. In addition to a wonderful meal sponsored by Harrah’s/Harveys’ HEROs, they were entertained by the musically and multi-instrumentally talented Todd Green. Thanks to the Tahoe Arts Project, Todd played a wide range of musical instruments, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the diners throughout the evening event.

B&B was also fortunate to have HEROs members Darlene Winkelman, John Guastella, Patrick Frega, Randall Sumner and Jacalyn Andrews volunteering to help the evening event go smoothly. With their help, the dinner guests received a warm welcome, heaping bags of food to take home and a hot, nutritious meal. “It fills my heart with joy to serve those struggling with hunger in our community,” Winkelman said, after helping on the serving line.

HEROs, a Harrah’s/Harveys’ employee-based volunteer organization, is a frequent Adopt A Day sponsor and always sends a great volunteer crew. B&B would like to thank both the Caesars Entertainment for its financial donation and the HEROs’ volunteer for donating their personal time to take the opportunity to help others. Sumner summed up his take on his B&B experience, “I feel great after volunteering at B&B helping those less fortunate than myself. Plus, a great bike ride to Saint Theresa Grace Hall equals win/win. No brainer.”

Super speaker at Rotary

Thanks to James R. Tarwater, Ed. D. Superintendent for being our featured speaker at the Rotary Club of South Lake Tahoe. He gave an informed, interesting and spirited presentation on the many successes and future plans for the Lake Tahoe Unified School District, the dramatic improvement to school facilities and programs, and the opportunities and challenges facing the district. Our members and I also enjoyed his discussion of the truly cooperative and collaborative relationship the LTUSD and LTCC have formed for programs that will enable local high school students to participate in college classes and learning. We all benefit by the work he and the Board of Education are doing to provide exceptional educational opportunities and facilities for our young people.
