Widowed group plans events

Holiday time can sometimes be a lonely time for widowed men and women. This was a consideration when the Widowed Persons Association of California was formed. The South Lake Tahoe chapter of the association provides some answers for the suddenly or longtime widowed man or woman.

December events will include gatherings for no-host luncheons and dinners in local restaurants, and a Christmas party in the home of a member. The Christmas party is restricted to members, but other widowed persons are welcome to join the group for the other events to explore the organization.

Recent activities have included trips out of town for theater productions and future trips are planned.

Call (530) 542-4912 for more information.

Civil Rights era comes to life

Tahoe Arts Project and Annetta and Robert Chester are pleased to bring you a compelling performance by Living Voices. Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe will host this program at its luncheon meeting at noon, Dec. 1, at Harveys convention center.

The cost is $10 and includes lunch.

Living Voices brings life to history by using a unique combination of live theater and interactive video.

The program to be presented is titled “The Right to Dream,” which tells the story of the struggle and sacrifice for Civil Rights in America.

“The Right to Dream” conveys the experience of growing up as an African American in Mississippi during the 1950s and 1960s.

This program illuminates the issues of civil rights, leading audiences to understand how the fight against prejudice has shaped our history.

“The Right to Dream” and “La Causa,” the story of Cesar Chavez, also will be presented to local middle school students.
