The Local Lens – Community Involvement Opportunities

October 12, 2022 | Linda Offerdahl

This is a big week for community involvement! Beyond the obvious reason for attending community forums…. learning about an issue or what’s going on, meeting your neighbors in person again is a real plus. When we can put faces to names, when we can meet n ew people, when we can listen with interest, we start to weave together the fabric of community again.  And you know what that leads to…conversations with now familiar faces at Raley’s! Please share with me IVCBA’s vision of a thriving community that supports and is supported by its agencies, businesses, nonprofits, and residents!

IF IT’S NOT TOO LATE… to plan something for tonight, Wednesday, October 12, pick one of these 3 events:

  • Incline High School Expansion grant community forum. Nowhere has the generosity of the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation been felt more than at Incline High School, at least in Incline Village. This latest grant builds out a football and track field, as well as expansion to the building itself to allow for more student programs. This is a broad-brush explanation of an extensive $38 million development. Thank you to Dave & Cheryl Duffield! 
  • IVGID Board of Trustees meeting…there are two this month, tonight and October 20.
  • UNR’s Great Conversations “Why We Make” presented by Rick Parsons, Teaching Professor of Art, at the Holman Art Center. UNR at Lake Tahoe is working hard to engage with our community. Rick is a longtime professor. The Holman Art Center is truly a great resource for local artists and people who enjoy art.


Now’s your chance to find out where the candidates stand on all the issues at IVGID! Being an IVGID trustee must often seem like a thankless task. I am so glad OTHERS are willing to do this. The least we can do is vote for the candidates that best represent our point of view. And then trust them to do their job! Do your homework: go online to research the candidates and then come to the candidate forum at the Chateau Thursday (6:00 p.m.). All the trustee candidates have websites: Yolanda Knaak, Gail Krolick, Dave Noble, and Ray Tulloch. Thank you to IVCB Community Forum for presenting this candidate night.
