Everyone is invited to a potluck with interesting topics and speakers starting at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 1 at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
At 6:20 p.m., Dee Nangle, spokesperson for the Fire Safety Council in association with Lake Valley Fire Protection, will tell how one can get free firewood, if they qualify. She will have applications. Those who qualify are disabled persons and seniors. The deadline for returning applications is in September.
At 6:30 p.m., El Dorado County Supervisor Norma Santiago and South Lake Tahoe Councilwoman Kathay Lovell will speak about the 56-acre project. It is a joint effort by the city of South Lake Tahoe, El Dorado County and the California Tahoe Conservancy to evaluate potential community, recreational and public access improvements at the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Area and surrounding public lands.
If the project materializes, which may be in about two years, it would likely have a positive effect on the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, the El Dorado County Library and the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Department. There is an indication that funds can be available, and Santiago and Lovell are enthusiastic about the possibilities.
South Lake Tahoe Senior Citizens Inc. will provide hamburgers with all the fixing free of charge. Those who attend the potluck are asked to bring salads, side dishes or dessert for six to eight people and their own plates and utensils. There will be a cash raffle, in which all are invited to participate.
