Tahoe-Douglas Elks move crab feed to Minden
As a result of Sunday’s flooding, the Tahoe-Douglas Elks report it will be 1-3 months before the lodge is available for use.
Frozen fire sprinkler lines flooded the lodge, located at 1227 Kimmerling Road in the Gardnerville Ranchos.
Firefighters reported seeing up to 2 feet of water standing in one of the offices.
The flood has forced the cancellation of the Elks’ monthly breakfast and taco Thursdays.
It’s also caused them to move the annual All-You-Can-Eat Crab Feed to Feb. 12 at the CVIC Hall in Minden.
The feed will open at 5 p.m. with dinner served at 6 p.m. The cost is $40 per person, in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door.
The menu includes all-you-can eat dungeness crab, clam chowder, prawn shrimp, salad and garlic bread.
Reservations and payment must be received by Feb. 6. Call 775-267-9205 or 775-265-4523 for more information.
They expect to be back in their lodge by March 26, in time to host their annual citizen of the year celebration.
Social 5 p.m., dinner 6 p.m. followed by formal presentation. For information and to sign up call 775-392-2249.
Elks Exalted Ruler Mary Retterer thanked East Fork firefighters for their help in a letter that will appear in Wednesday’s edition of The Record-Courier.
Their regular meetings will be conducted at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center.
Work on the lodge is being done by BELFOR Water Damage Restoration and Repair.
