Genoa, Nev. — The Main Street Farmers Market presented by Sierra Chef gets an early start today at 8 a.m. in Gardnerville’s Heritage Park. The market will be open until 1 p.m.
Community coronavirus testing will be conducted 9-10:30 a.m. at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center in Gardnerville. There haven’t been a large number of participants since vaccinations started in January, so if you want a test, I wager there won’t be much of a wait.
Health officials will be back at the Community Center 3-6 p.m. Thursday for Pfizer vaccination clinic for those 12 and older. I just checked the site, and it looks like there are appointments available at https://booking.appointy.com/en-US/quadcovidvaccine/bookings/service There will also be a few walk-in appointments available.
The Douglas County School Board will meet virtually 4 p.m. today to discuss when to bring back the budget hearing after the cancellation of Tuesday’s in-person meeting. I hear the Legislature could close the K-12 budget in the next day or so, which will give trustees something to work with.
A four-year contract with the Douglas County Professional Education Association is up for approval today. To participate in today’s meeting, visit www.dcsd.k12.nv.us, click on board meetings and then press the big purple button.
The National Weather Service has issued a freeze watch for Thursday night through Friday morning. Time to bring the tomatoes in, and unhook the hoses for a couple of nights. It’s only forecast to drop to 29 degrees in Minden early Friday morning, but there are a lot of microclimates in the Valley, and your temperatures may differ.
It’s relatively warm and a little breezy out this morning. The forecast calls for a high of 72 degrees under sunny skies. The wind will start out at 10-15 mph out of the south, then shift southwest 20-25 mph, gusting to 40 mph from noon to midnight.
