A service will be held on Friday, March 28 at 6 p.m. for Emily Clothier, a 14-year-old South Lake Tahoe girl who died last week after a ski accident at Heavenly Mountain Resort.
Also, a scholarship has been established in her name.
The service will take place at Sierra Community Church, 1165 Sierra Blvd., South Lake Tahoe.
Emily’s parents have requested athletes with the Heavenly Ski and Snowboard Foundation to wear their speed suits and team jackets. Emily was a member of the team and was training when the accident happened.
The family is also requesting that Heavenly personnel and ski patrol wear their uniform jackets as well.
The foundation has asked for those attending from either the foundation or Heavenly Mountain Resort employees and ski patrol to please call ahead of time as there will be a seating section for both. Call (530) 541-7354.
A potluck will be held immediately following the service. Please contact Kimber Allen at (530) 541-2751 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know if you plan to bring anything.
In lieu of flowers, donations will be accepted to benefit the Emily Clothier Memorial Fund. Make checks payable to Bank of the West, 2161 Lake Tahoe Blvd., South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.
The Emily Clothier Memorial Fund will be used to perpetuate the future development of junior ski racing in South Lake Tahoe.
