HOLIDAY GALA - Thanks so much to the over 40 ladies and gentlemen who so generously gave of their time, effort, talent and money to provide the wonderful cookies and candies for the annual Sweet Shoppe at Saturdays Holiday Gala. You always come through and with the very best of goodies. I know the many hours that had to be spent on baking, cooking and decorating at such a busy time of year. I and my committee are very appreciative of all your efforts.

There were so many positive comments on all the goodies for sale. Lots of "ooohs" and "aaahs". Many thanks to organizations such as DAWG , Red Hatters, and Helping Hands for supporting us with their donations. We also were joined by Raleys and Walmart with their generous donations. It's hard to express how grateful we are for such a supportive community.

Almost two hundred persons went through the Sweet Shoppe doors to make their purchases. They followed their noses as the museum was filled with the scent of freshly baked cookies and homemade candies. Without our generous buyers, we wouldn't have been so successful.

Thanks to all who participated in some way to make the event another success for the Historical Society. All proceed go directly to the Historical Society as a nonprofit organization.

Thanks to the bakers and buyers and to those who helped make it happen, including Anita, Barbara, Joan, Marlena, Mary and Susan. Thanks for another successful event filled with fun, food and festivities. forgive me if I missed anyone.

Our Gallery of Trees will run through Christmas. Here we have a trio of perfectly paired trees. To the Left is the Douglas County Democratic Women's entry, "Unity for a Better Future" and to the Right we have the Douglas County Republican Women's presentation of "Honor And Remember" seamlessly balanced in the center with the John C. Fremont Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution's "Ladies Who Helped Win The American Revolution." We hope you will stop by the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center, 1477 US Highway 395 N, Gardnerville to view the entire section of trees, snow globes and gingerbread houses. Free admission to view the Gallery of Trees.
