Walley's renovates day spa

1862 David Walley's Hot Springs Resort and Spa recently completed renovation of their day spa, offering upgrades and new amenities with the intention of creating a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for local and vacationing guests.

This is the second major renovation to the property since Summer Winds Resort Services acquired David Walley's in 2010.

The renovations began in late 2010 with the properties' two restaurants, 1862 Restaurant and Saloon, and Harriet's Cafe.

"The beautiful renovation of the 1862 day spa is another example of our vision for the resort," said Dawn Joyce, co-owner of Summer Winds Resort Services. "It is our goal to compete with the finest resorts in the region by always improving our guest experience."

The new day spa features craftsmanship in natural stone and woodwork completed by local tradesmen.

It offers Vichy Shower treatments and mineral water from the hot springs, complementing a variety of body scrubs and wraps.

It also offers facial treatment featuring Pevonia skincare products, as well as massage therapy and a nail salon.

Reservations are required for spa treatments. Visit

GNCU thanks employees

This fall, Greater Nevada Credit Union hosted its annual company-wide employee appreciation and training event, thanking the 170 individuals who work there.

"Credit unions are about people," said GNCU President and CEO Wally Murray.

"We strive to employ individuals who are dedicated to serving not only our members, but also the communities in which they live. It's a culture that we believe in, and one that has helped us forge ahead, even in challenging times."

The employee appreciation event has become a tradition, focusing on individual employee accomplishments, as well as outstanding contributions by branch and department teams. Length of service is also recognized, and highly valued by an organization that was founded in Carson City in 1949.

This year, 24 employees were recognized for reaching five, 10, and 15 years of service.

However, the meeting serves another purpose: to share business goals with all levels of staff collectively, and discuss how each employee plays a key role in achieving those goals.

Geri Carlson, a member services representative at GNCU's Minden branch, has attended every annual employee meeting.

"I've worked at GNCU for 17 years and always look forward to this event," Carlson said. "It's both fun and informative, and it helps me do a better job because I understand the direction we're headed and how I fit into the journey."
