Sierra Nevada 20-30 club gives parents a day off

Staff Reports

The Active 20-30 Club of Sierra Nevada No. 730 is hosting their annual Winter Wonderland event 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 3 at Carson Valley Middle School.

The event gives parents the opportunity to drop their children off for a few hours of fun while they complete their Christmas shopping without the worry of wondering eyes catching a glimpse of one of Santa’s elves. It also allows parents time to tend to errands alone, or simply enjoy some rare quiet time.

With the help of middle and high school students, children will spend the day doing crafts, games, art, music, movies and more. The cost is $15. Children need to bring a sack lunch and Sierra Nevada 20-30 will provide afternoon and morning snacks. To enroll your child call the Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department at 782-9828.

Active 20-30 International is a non-profit organization providing young adults with an opportunity to make a difference in the life of special needs children in their communities. The Sierra Nevada Women’s Active 20-30 Club #730 provides young women between the ages of 20 and 39 the forum and tools to positively affect underprivileged children in Douglas County. Sierra Nevada women support such agencies as Austin’s House, Backpack Buddies, the Boys & Girls Club of Carson Valley, the Family Support Council, Kids & Horses and other organizations with a priority in assisting special needs children. The local Active 20-30 chapter of Sierra Nevada #730 works on carrying out this mission for the children of Douglas County.
