The Local Lens – Highlander Homecoming
September 28, 2022 | Linda Offerdahl
Homecoming week at incline high school! Yes, homecoming games are well-attended by locals, so don’t miss this Friday night’s game at 7 p.m. The Highlanders are playing Reno’s Coral Academy. Not a football fan? Then come to see Incline High School royalty get crowned! Oh, and the snack shack will be open and run by the soccer team and will feature some delicious Mexican options. While you are on that field behind the high school, imagine what it will look like when improvements are made with the help of our local benefactor, the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation.
If you really can’t make the game, watch the parade at 2 p.m. The homecoming parade is another great tradition. It begins on Alder, follows Northwood and winds up on Tahoe Blvd and the Raleys parking lot before it heads up Village back to the high school. The theme this year is Board Games, so students have been dressing up in “game appropriate attire” representing Jumanji, Clue, Cards, Candy Land, or Battleship. Each grade will have a float that relates to the “board game” theme. For example: the Freshman will represent the game Jumanji, Sophomores are the game Clue, Juniors are playing cards and Seniors will represent Candyland. (Parade Route Map)
Inclined to Meet Town Hall on the City of Incline Village I normally don’t write about things that have already happened, but I want to mention this one. This Town Hall was sponsored by IVCBA and the IVCB Community Forum.It was attended by well over 150 people who listened respectfully to speakers Todd Lowe and Kevin Lyons talk about the movement to form the City of Incline Village. It is a long process involving much research and work by local citizens and professionals. This Town Hall is one of many steps being taken to inform the community so that a petition can be passed next year, allowing us to formally bring the matter to the community for a ballot vote. Although IVCBA does not take a political stance, we ARE in favor of information and dialogue! There are many opinions; I observe that the common denominator is that all share a deep love for our community.

Sheriff’s picnic on October 8 I am going to keep promoting this event because it is such a classic small town event. Put it on your calendar now…more details in next week’s Local Lens!
