These Tahoe/Truckee are locals spreading the light
The beauty of our tight-knit community continues to unveil itself as we heed the impacts of the coronavirus. With springtime in our midst, it seems that generosity is being spread like seeds and the roots of kindness have sprouted up like flowers.
Thank you to the team at Eagle’s Eye, the Sierra Nevada University newspaper, for writing an uplifting article about the local individuals and businesses in our area making a difference during this trying time. There have been countless acts of selflessness around us, and the people doing them deserve our praise. Read the article, ‘Tahoe locals making the difference.’
