At the Oct. 4 meeting, the volunteer group will discuss the Tahoe Arts Project, Tallac Association fall events, Lake Tahoe Marathon, Kokanee Salmon Festival, Mountain Photo Workshop, Black & Black Ball and the Valhalla Holiday Gala, among other items.

Anyone interested in promoting or helping organize special events on the South Shore is invited to attend. The coalition meets every other month to identify opportunities in Lake Tahoe’s special events calendar, increase awareness of regional special events, and to help nonprofit groups better publicize their events to the community.

To have items added to the special events agenda, contact Marvin Weitzenhoffer at (530) 577-6024.
