Disaster ‘victims’ are needed

Barton Hospital and the Emergency Management Community Council need people to participate on Thursday, Oct. 5, to help our community be better prepared to face real emergencies in the future.

Volunteers won’t be required to do anything especially technically difficult aside from pretending to be casualty patients for a day in a major hypothetical disaster.

Specific roles and injuries will be assigned with injuries created from makeup and latex ranging from cuts and bruises to broken limbs and major injuries. Some will be treated on site and others will be transported to participating hospitals. It’s a great opportunity for service clubs, scout troups or anyone interested.

If you can help, please contact Jaymee Willison of the South Lake Tahoe American Red Cross DAT at (530) 544-2657 or e-mail her at

Ice cream event is a benefit

The 5th Annual World’s Largest Ice Cream Social will be held locally at the Cold Stone Creamery in the Heavenly Village on Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Each year the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Sacramento & Northeastern California teams up with our local Cold Stone Creamery to support Make-A-Wish gifts to children with life- threatening illnesses.

Cold Stone Creamery began its relationship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation in 2002 and has expanded its sponsorship of the Foundation to include fundraising in new store grand openings in addition to the annual month-long celebration.

Since 1999, 96 wishes have been granted in El Dorado County.

This year’s ice cream social will be hosted by Jeff and Karen Miner, whose daughter, Sarah, was a Make-A-Wish recipient. For more information call (530) 577-7293 or (530)416-2180.

Yachters helped with clean-up

The South Lake Tahoe Yacht Club took part in the International Coastal Cleanup from 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 16. Their participation included cleaning the beaches in and around Vikingholm at Emerald Bay. The International Coastal Cleanup organization provided plastic bags, gloves and tally sheets (to count the garbage), while teams of two dispersed, collected and reported what was picked up.

Sixteen members of the South Lake Tahoe Yacht Club participated this year, in which eight members were transported to Emerald Bay by the El Dorado County Sheriff’s boat, and the other eight were transported by one of the yacht club members. Lunch was provided for the volunteers, the Sheriff’s Office and Hayden Sohn, superintendent of California State Parks, who arrived to give us a big thank-you for a job well done.
