The South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce Open House will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. Nov. 16 (not Nov. 9 as previously stated in the Chamber newsletter) in the Chamber office, 3066 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

The Chamber is kicking off its 50th anniversary and invites anyone not currently affiliated with the Chamber to attend as well as current members. Current members are encouraged to bring non-member business friends along. As a way to commemorate 50 years, the Chamber will use this forum as a re-introduction to the business community.

People who snore, find it difficult to stay awake during their everyday routine or wake up with headaches could be suffering from sleep apnea. Lucky for them, Barton Sleep Studies Lab has a Group for Apnea Sleeping Problems. G.A.S.P. will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Barton Hospital board room.

Sleep apnea is the most prevalent sleep disorder. The possible dangers of sleep apnea include anything from weight gain and care accidents to heart disease and strokes. Anyone who believes they or a loved one has sleep apnea, or has been diagnosed with the affliction, is welcome to attend the meeting.
