The Importance of Giving

Winston Churchill said it best when he quoted "We make a living by what we get; but we make a life by what we give."   I was reminded of this quote recently when a parent told me that along with all the personal requests to Santa, her children are asked to also include a request for someone else.  It can be a physical thing 'please bring my best friend a soccer ball so we can play together' or, as they've got older, a request for a cause or charity that they have become interested in.  She hopes that this early reminder to think of others as well as themselves will teach a lifelong habit of concern for others and charity.

Whole Foods has come to South Lake Tahoe!

For those of you who have not seen the coverage in the local press, it was quite an opening day, with people lined up early in the morning to be the first through the doors, with goodie bags and saver cards for the first 300 visitors. If you have not yet been to check it out, then today is your day! On Wednesday 13th November, Whole Foods South Lake Tahoe is donating 5% of all their sales revenue to the Club. We are so excited to have created this partnership and to be chosen as one of Whole Foods' local charities. Indeed, we have been extremely impressed by how Whole Foods have approached local charitable giving with the opening of a store here.

What’s a ghost’s favorite dessert? I scream!

Yes, Halloween is here and now that you've spent a small fortune on a costume (seriously an old sheet with cut out holes for eyes was good enough for us!), your paycheck on candy,  and started to google Thursday's temps every other hour - you are finally ready to hit the streets and scare some ghosts away.
