Every year we look back on all that has been achieved in the past 12 months and think ‘that was our best year yet’; and this year is no exception. The Club, our members and our staff have achieved so much in 2018 that it was hard to remember it all. But here are just the top highlights to remind us what a great year it has been.
Or, more precisely, to the Club. In mid November, Sierra House School had an electrical fire in one of the reading classrooms that caused significant damage, and as a result, the entire school is vacating to enable extensive remediation work to be completed. The Club is delighted that we have the ability to open our rooms and make ourselves available to the school. Starting on Monday 17th December the whole of Sierra House will be at our site. To fit everyone in the school will be doing a split schedule. K-2nd in the morning and 3rd-5th in the afternoon.
November has been a tough month for California. First the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks and then the fires in Malibu and Paradise. Fire hit very close to home over President's weekend with the fire at Sierra House Elementary and we are so grateful to our local firefighters, district staff and community helpers for quickly stopping the fire from spreading and for working so hard and so quickly to get the school open again.
The Tahoe Brewfest received the Tahoe Chamber's Honorable Mention in the 'Tourism' category at the annual Blue Ribbon Awards on Thursday 8th November. The Club was very proud to come second place, beating some of the South Shore's top businesses and events, and showing just how far the Brewfest has come in only two years. Nicole Marsel, our Events and Fundraising Director, did an incredible job growing and improving the event this year and we are already planning for the 1st June 2019 - save the date!
