Kudos & Kindness: Save a Pet was a tremendous success; B&B thanks LTCC Leadership Team

Save a Pet was a tremendous success

Save a Pet 2014 was a huge success. First and foremost, I would like to thank the Tahoe Humane Society and Sierra Vet for their full support for the fundraiser. Also, South Tahoe K-9 Unit for its continuing participation and demonstrations.

Booth Participants: Pet Supermarket, Wells Fargo Bank, Humane Society, and Dennis Perry with USA Cash.

Raffle Prizes donated by: Staples, Locals Choice, Dog Dog Cat, Tahoe Bowl, Lilly’s Tire Services, Video Library, Deja Vu, Tahoe Best Friends, Tahoe Tails & Trails, Rio Nail & Spa, Tony Harper, The Lodge at Kingsbury Crossing and Tahoe Seasons Resort.

A special thanks to Mary Albright for her hard work and dedication and Ray Harper and Tori Liebenberg for donating all of the food. Music was provided by Ashley Wallick and David Salois.

Again, a special thank you to Niki Congero with the Tahoe Humane Society and David Monroe with Sierra Vet.

Our soul mission is to get medical attention to those pets whose owners may otherwise not be able to afford it. Thank you, everyone. Donations can still be made to Tahoe Humane Society and Sierra Vet under the Aussie/Hooter Fund.

Hope to see everyone next year.

All my deepest respect and honor,

Rose Denner-Welechenko

B&B thanks LTCC Leadership Team

“Outstanding meal! Outstanding staff! Outstanding experience!” was the consensus of the four Lake Tahoe Community College Leadership Team volunteers at Bread & Broth’s Monday evening dinner on June 9. During a lull in the serving line, Alba Morales, administrative assistant to the dean; Sue Saia-Gochis, dean of students and academic support service, and her husband, Peter Gochis and their daughter, Courtney Sais all agreed that they were having a wonderful time serving a hot, nutritious meal to all of the guests at B&B’s dinner.

In additional to thanking this fun-loving and hard working sponsor volunteer group, B&B would like to thank the LTCC Leadership Team for donating $250 for sponsoring their second “Adopt A Day of Nourishment” this year. As a non-profit, all volunteer program, Bread & Broth receives its funding from the many Adopt A Day sponsors and anonymous donors who generously give so that B&B is able to provide a full-course dinner every Monday at St. Theresa Church’s Grace Hall and a soup/pasta meal every Friday at Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church.

On June 9, 92 guests attended B&B’s dinner of roast beef, green beans, mashed potatoes, green salad and a variety of desserts. Twenty-six guests came back for seconds and many “to go” cartons were handed out. All of this was the gift of the Lake Tahoe Community Colleges Leadership Team and the many B&B volunteers who all share their concern for the less fortunate of our community.

Getting serious about transportation (Opinion)


Lake Tahoe’s transportation system and roads need a transformation. On peak days, the region faces metropolitan-scale problems on narrow mountain roadways and, unlike metro areas, Tahoe can’t simply grow its way to a solution with…
