Five years ago the Club had an average daily attendance of around 50 at our main site and approximately 30 at Bijou. Fast forward to today and we have an average daily attendance of over 300 a day across both sites. An improved Club experience, better programs, great staff and the low cost of membership have made the Club very popular. Tahoe is also a working community, and the majority of our families need after-school care due to their work schedule.
Let's plan ahead for germ season. Back to school is so exciting; new teachers, new friends, maybe a new school. But there is a downside to everyone reconvening together - and that is germs. The kids took a whole school year to build up their immunity and then over the summer met new people and went to new places with different germs. And now, before too soon, the familiar back to school coughs and colds will start.
I have always liked the song 'Smoke gets in your eyes' but recently it has been going around my head for the wrong reason - I've literally had smoke in my eyes! No-one living in or visiting Tahoe that summer can have missed the impact on our air quality from all the fires across the State. The Mendocino Complex is now the biggest fire in California history and recent reports indicate that it could take until September to get it under control.
Can you believe that the start of school is only two full weeks away. We still have lots of awesome activities planned for the rest of the summer, with trips to Reno, the Skate Park, water days and of course the party to beat all end of summer parties on the 24th August.
