Sierra Recovery Center has launched a new program called, “Every Child Deserves a Drug Free Home.”
This is in keeping with the mission statement of “offering continuing and compassionate recovery to individuals and families affected by addictive behavior.”
To kick off this new program, SRC is providing selected businesses with donation boxes for collection of donations during the holiday season.
All proceeds will go toward providing care and treatment of families and individuals affected by substance abuse, as well as toward SRC’s new outpatient and transitional facility.
Look for the brightly colored SRC boxes at businesses around Tahoe starting Thanksgiving week. All donations are appreciated.
For more information contact Sierra Recovery Center at (530) 541-5190.
Genoa readies for the holidays
Once again the holiday season has arrived in Genoa. In Nevada’s oldest town on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada range, the Dake House Antiques Emporium is ready for their Victorian Christmas.
The staff will be in costume for the event, which is scheduled from Nov. 26 to Dec. 8.
Built in the 1870s, the house is decorated with ribbons, lights and wreaths, with Christmas trees covered in ornaments from vintage to new.
Back again this year for display will be the J.W. Laird Collection of vintage figural light bulbs.
There is always hot cider to go with a sampling of cookies while you browse for the right gift or a treasure for yourself.
The Dake House is at 2242 Main Street, next to the post office, and is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week.
Just up the street is the Genoa Bar, Nevada’s oldest thirst parlor. They have a unique New Year’s Eve celebration – the Old Traditional Party.
No electricity, just oil lamps and candles and music is all acoustic.
