Kudos & Kindness

To the editor:

On Nov.13, magician Tony Clark had a special performance of “Fusion” for the children of the Family Resource Center and the Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe. Approximately 150 children and their parents filled the room, generously donated by the Horizon Casino, and were treated to lunch and an exciting magic show, all donated by Tony Clark. This was a rare opportunity for many of these families, who otherwise could not afford to attend.

This heart-warming display of kindness by Tony Clark and the Horizon Casino is just another example of their boundless dedication to the children and community of South Lake Tahoe for which we are incredibly grateful.

On behalf of the Family Resource Center and the Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, we would like to give our heart-felt thanks Tony Clark, the Horizon Casino, and Fusion’s Alexander, Bryson, Gregory, and Pamela for providing an incredible night for needy families that will never be forgotten.

Vets appreciate recognition

To the editor:

American Legion Post 795, on behalf of all veterans, would like to thank the Tahoe Daily Tribune for publishing the photo spread, “Saluting the heroes,” honoring the veterans for the Nov. 11 Veterans Day ceremony.

It was truly a great tribute to veterans. The page warmed the hearts of the veterans and their families.

Thank you for supporting our troops.

1,000 cheese balls sold in fund-raiser

To the editor:

The Barton Memorial Hospital Auxiliary fund-raiser of hand making and selling walnut-coated cheese balls was a great success again this year.

More than 1,000 cheeseballs were hand made and sold to benefit the hospital.

The success is attributed to the local community support of The Barkley Co., Crystal Dairy Foods, South Lake Tahoe Elks Club, Thran’s Flower Shop, members of the auxiliary who volunteered their time and especially their effort and the many community members who purchased this holiday treat.

A big thanks to all and your participation was appreciated.

Bob and Geri Wilk, chairpersons

Smokers try hypnotherapy

To the editor:

On Nov. 19, 55 STHS students and 40 community members had the opportunity to participate in a Quit Smoking Hypnotherapy session to see if this method could work for them to gain relief from the addiction of tobacco products.

This event could not have taken place were it not for Gaye Wilson, a registered nurse and certified hypnotherapist who donated her time, the El Dorado County Tobacco Coalition and Health Promotions, student groups FNL, STYC, Club Live, NJROTC, and Bill Cottrill and Embassy Suites.

We’d like to also thank those individuals who took a courageous step for themselves and those they love.

If this program helped just one individual it was a great success.

Family grateful for support

To the editor:

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the people in the Reno, Carson City, and Tahoe areas who sent out their prayers to my brother, Michael, and to our family.

He lived in all three areas over the past 30 years, and had many friends.

Michael was a very loving and sincere person. He touched many people in his life, and the compassion he often felt for others was returned to him in prayer.

The Thanksgiving holiday is always hard on this family, for we lost our mother on this day.

Now, as we prepare for Michael’s funeral, we all feel an appreciation for just how precious life is, and in his memory we will have and feel our Thanksgiving as never before.

We miss you, Michael. Thank you and God bless you all.
