Magic of music

Over the last few weeks, the talented duo of Ike and Martin, have rocked the MS Dixie and the Tahoe Queen with a series of free concert cruises. I can’t begin to express how wonderful these musical interludes, in the midst of all the holiday madness, lightened our moods and elevated our love of all things Tahoe. Kudos to not only Ike and Martin, but to Aramark Parks and Destinations along with their very hospitable staff on both ships. There really are few things as magical as a lake cruise, surrounded by friends, listening to exceptional music. It was a Christmas present, in and of itself. Thank you to all who made it happen.

Spirit of giving

Kids in this town know the true meaning of Christmas. A fine example of the spirit of giving is demonstrated at the Bijou Community School Holiday Food Drive. The Family Resource Center was the recipient of a huge mountain of food donated by the school children and their families to those in greater need. What surprises me most about this tremendous act of compassion and kindness is that it comes from a school made up of folks from diverse backgrounds and with a large percentage of those from a very low socio-economic status. It gives me such a warm feeling to know that our kids, no matter the circumstance, have a great sense of caring and desire to give back. Happy holidays to all!
