The View From The Top

December 2023


Happy winter! Mt. Rose opening before Thanksgiving is a great sign for skiing, let’s hope for more snow!

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Thanks to members who have volunteered to lead activities, we have several Christmas events:

  • Holiday Dinner at Skyline Kitchen and Vine with dancing to a DJ on December 6. Dressing up is encouraged!
  • Christmas TGIF at the home of Gayle Sherman and Peter Callison on December 22.
  • Christmas Day Dinner at the home of Kats Cannell.

December is the month of our annual fundraiser – the Holiday Bake and Craft Sale at our general meeting on Tuesday, December 12 at La Fonda Restaurant, something not to miss! It’s hard to explain to someone who has never attended one of these events just how fun it is as we experience our members out bid each other. Our auctioneers add the right touch of humor, and we have some fabulous bakers, cooks and crafters that prepare tantalizing goodies, wonderful crafts, holiday decor, services such offering a dinner, and more.  Please bake or create something to auction if you can and/or bring your checkbooks so you don’t miss out on the great items to purchase.

Doug Barr is working with a travel agent for a ski trip in late February to the Salt Lake City area. Although not an officially sponsored RSRC trip, the Board of Directors has agreed to let Doug advertise this to our members. We know how many enjoy ski trips so here is a great opportunity to consider.

By now, December, hopefully you have renewed your membership. If so, thank you!!!! If you haven’t renewed, I get it, we are all so busy. But please do so now! I look forward to another great year with for the Reno Ski and Recreation Club.

During the holiday season I am especially glad to be part of this group, knowing that I am surrounded by good friends that I consider my family.  May you find yourself surrounded by loved ones and joy this holiday season. Merry Christmas.

Keep recreating,
