The Lake Tahoe Historical Society will open the museum for an open house Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. This will precede the holiday lighting festivities at the South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce.

The museum is located at 3058 Lake Tahoe Blvd., just two doors west of the SLT Chamber of Commerce. It can be easily identified by the Celio butter wagon in front.

For those looking for Lake Tahoe related gifts, the Historical Society has a varied group of books and posters. Some attractive and interesting “coffee table” books have been added to the stock this year and the old favorites are still available.

There will be no admission charge and refreshments will be served. This is an opportunity to visit or revisit the museum and them take in the festivities at the Chamber of Commerce.

Walley’s the site for Sunday party

The Lake Tahoe Gay Lesbian Foundation’s holiday party is all about fun no matter your sexual preference. The festivities will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. Sunday at David Walley’s Hot Springs in Genoa, 2001 Foothill Road.

A scrumptious buffet, wine and music to dance to will be available for $45. If you want something else to drink, bring some cash and the bartender will get it for you. Tickets are available at the Tahoe-Douglas Chamber of Commerce or from a Lake Tahoe Gay Lesbian Foundation board member. Only cash or checks made out to LTGLE (E is for Events) will be accepted. There are a limited number of tickets, so don’t wait too long to purchase one, two or half a dozen.

With Dec. 1 being World AIDS Day, Maxine Alper, guru of our beneficiary Sierra Foothills AIDS Foundation, will speak briefly on this topic that unfortunately is still of relevance today. A portion of each ticket will go directly to LTGLE – the events side of the foundation.
