It’s the first day of summer, and balloonist Whit Landvater was drifting over Gardnerville this morning. There’s not a breath of wind so far today, and it’s warmer by at least 5 degrees than it was on the last day of spring. Expect sunny skies today with a high near 76, and for the winds to pick up a bit this afternoon to 5-10 mph. Saturday will be nice, but there’s a chance for showers on Sunday. That chance will increase on Monday.
The Carson Valley United Methodist Church rummage sale should be off and running pretty soon this morning. It continues through Saturday if you miss it today. Genoa will be hosting its Community Garage Sale on Saturday if the Methodists didn’t empty your pockets today.
If you’re a Journey fan, tonight’s concert in Minden Park is for you. Journey Unauthorized will be performing free starting at 6:30 p.m. I can guarantee the chairs will start gathering this morning. Live music will continue on Saturday at the Center for Hope and Healing’s fundraiser 5-9 p.m. Saturday at Trimmer Outpost in Genoa. Valley Christian Fellowship is hosting Jacob Thomas at 7 p.m. at 1352 Highway 395 in Gardnerville. Then on Sunday the Mark Sexton Band is performing 5 p.m. at the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park. For details on all this and more pick up a copy of today’s edition of The Record-Courier at news stands all over the Valley.
