The Nov. 9 R-C Morning Report

Marines will be gathering at noon today at the Judicial & Law Enforcement Building to celebrate the 243rdbirthday of their service with cake, coffee and a message from the Commandant.  Serving, veteran and retired Marines are all welcome.


Douglas High School theater students’ one-act plays open 7 p.m. tonight in the Drama Room at the high school in Minden. You can also catch the students 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday. Cost is $5 in advance or $10 for the night shows. They can use the money, so if you go to the matinee, which is donation only, give them the tenner anyway.


The Tahoe Douglas Elks are closing out their boutique items 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at the Lodge, 1227 Kimmerling Road in the Gardnerville Ranchos.


If you were a member of Friends of the Library, you could take your pick of the books, DVDs and CDs for this weekend’s book sale at the CVIC Hall. Otherwise, the sale is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.



Sunday is Veterans Day, and in honor of the centennial of the end of World War I, members of the Douglas County Historical Society will be out at the Genoa Courthouse Museum to ring the bell at 11 a.m. Veterans who build up an appetite doing that can stop by the free feed at the Carson Valley Inn.


Monday is the official Veterans Day holiday if you’ve got business with the government or the post office. School will also be out that day.


Expect sunny skies and a high near 54 degrees today with the wind out of the east at 5 mph, which will keep smoke from the Camp Fire on the other side of the Sierra.
