Kudos & Kindness for Nov. 1

NAMI-El Dorado County South Lake Tahoe truly appreciates Dr. Frederick Wenck’s very innovative approach that led to funding that will enable National Alliance on Mental Illness to host an educational program with law enforcement about mental disabilities and crisis interventions.

Dr. Wenck raised almost $6,000 for this important event to be held the first of next year. Thanks, Dr. Wenck, you have our deepest gratitude, and so does Pam Nance, our NAMI member, for making it happen for NAMI South Lake Tahoe.

The “take a hike for housing” partnership between Habitat for Humanity and Saint Joseph Community Land Trust, recently held at Spooner Lake, was a huge success.

A total of 33 hikers enjoyed beautiful weather. Half the hikers enjoyed the Marlette Lake trail, while the other half completed the Spooner Lake trail.

Lunch was provided by Lira’s Market and Raley’s for all hikers, and 15 raffle prizes went to lucky winners.

This was the inaugural hike for the housing event, raising more than $1,200 for affordable housing in our local community.

Thank you to all who supported this event. See you at our snow hike event this winter.

Dave Mills, manager of Camp Richardson, has again generously provided the lodge room for a South Lake Tahoe Historical Society event. As in the past, he did not fail to welcome the society and guests when Thunderbird Lodge speaker Bill Watson gave us the history of George Whittell and his amazing life.

Finding space for such programs, just the right size for our presentations, is important. Having the use of Camp Richardson’s historic ambiance is fantastic. Again, we thank Dave for his warm hospitality and interest in our historic programs.

Tahoe Senior Plaza residents and board members thank Rose Healion and Mary O’Brien of Sierra Pacific for delivering eight new energy-saving bulbs to every resident who participated in the giveaway program.

These new bulbs will not only save residents money on their electric bills, but also will help conserve energy for the future. Kudos, and thank you for thinking of us.
