A message from Dianne

The View From The Top

Christmas time is here! 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 – December 9. Dressing up is encouraged! 4 different entrees to choose from.
  • Christmas TGIF at the home of Liz Winters – December 17 - complete with an ugly sweater contest.

December is the month of our annual fundraiser – the Holiday Bake and Craft Sale, 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, Ron Percivalle and Dan Lutterman. add the right touch of humor and we have some fabulous bakers, cooks and crafters that prepare tantalizing goodies, wonderful crafts, holiday decor, 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.

A big thanks goes to Peter Olsten for opening his house recently for a TGIF. Our very own Debi Campbell was our speaker at our November meeting, with an excellent presentation on progressive fitness.  And Renee Andrini has stepped forward to lead a trip to Costa Rica this June. The trip is organized through a tour company, offering 10 days traveling coast to coast to 4 cities with guided tours, many meals, and more! Check out the flyer in the newsletter. Thanks so much for our members who are leading events and opening their homes, it is so appreciated and what keeps our Club going.

Congratulations to Monica Palmer who was appointed as the Far West Ski Association (FWSA) Safety Committee Chair. Monica tirelessly researches topics and writes excellent safety articles each month for our newsletter and will now be contributing safety information to FWSA publications. Way to go, Monica!


If you received your December newsletter, then you renewed your membership, 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,
