Another opening, another closing…

We were sad to see the Sweet Sippin’ Sundays in Genoa come to a close. We’ll miss those lazy summer afternoons spent strollin’ and sippin’ through the businesses in Genoa. Aside from the thousands of dollars the monthly event generated for local charities, it also funded the purchase of the covered wagon on Hwy. 395 pointing the way to Genoa. Special thanks to the volunteers who created the event and all who kept it going including local businesses, live bands and all those who came out to support it throughout the summer each year.

Determined to continue to offer unique activities, the Genoa Bar proudly presents “Sunday Porch Parties” beginning in May. Join them at the outdoor stage and bar on first and third Sundays from 2-6 p.m. Genoa Station Bar & Grille will be cooking up something special to add to the fun.


Bring your gently used household goods to Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park for their annual “Scatter’s Attic” rummage sale on May 13-14. Your antiques and collectibles, patio and decorative items, electronics, small appliances, and power tools in working condition valued at least $5 are needed to help raise money for landscaping improvements at Dangberg Ranch. Everything must be easy to transport, so no large furniture. You may bring donations to the park May 9-12, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Contact Mark Jensen at 783-9417 with questions. Then come shop the sale that weekend on the east lawn of the park. Sorry, no credit cards — cash or check only. The public sale opens at noon with early-bird access for “Friends of Dangberg” members on Saturday. The Dangberg Home Ranch Park is at 1450 Hwy. 88, Gardnerville. Enter off Hwy. 88 (about a mile south of the roundabout at the intersection of County Rd.) A good place to start on Sunday would be at the Douglas County Historical Society’s Mother’s Day Breakfast from 9 a.m.-noon at the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center. See next item.


No mom should have to cook on Mother’s Day. Not when the Carson Valley Lions Club is ready and able to do it for you. This Mother’s Day traditional fundraiser benefiting the Douglas County Historical Society is held on the front lawn of the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center, 1477 Hwy 395, Gardnerville. Lions Club members will be there to prepare a hot breakfast for the whole family including pancakes, eggs, sausage, juice, and coffee. Your $7 per person donation goes to benefit the DCHS with the Lions donating all the food and labor. Local favorite entertainer Ted Nagel’s “Rolling Thunder” will provide music. No RSVP or tickets are required — simply show up and enjoy from 9 a.m.-noon. Since the weather has been “extra sketchy” (even for Nevada) the breakfast may be moved indoors should it rain — or snow.
