The Tahoe League for Charity met for the monthly luncheon/speaker meeting on Monday, March 10th.  The featured speaker was Trinkie Watson reporting on behalf of The Lake Tahoe Music Festival.  Trinkie stated that the festival will be in full swing for the summer of 2014 and performed by the Orchestra Academy under the direction of Maestro Timm Rolek.
Tuesday, July 22 – Tahoe Tree
Wednesday, July 23 – Sugar Pine Point State Park
Thursday, July 25 – Schaffer’s Mill
Saturday, July 26 – Skylandia
All tickets will be $20 each with the exception of Schaffer’s Mill that will be $50 including dinner.  As of the first week in April, you may purchase tickets at  Mail-in donations send to:
Lake Tahoe Music Festival
PO Box 7
Truckee, CA 96160
The festival is a Tahoe cultural treasure blending nature and music for lasting memories.  This year we will experience music in the classic tradition from “Bach to Blues and Beyond.”  Donations help finance the festival and support the youth music program.
The Tahoe League for Charity April meeting will be held on April 14th at Jakes on the Lake in Tahoe City. Our April speaker will feature “ The Truckee River Weed Warriors” a volunteer program led by the Truckee River Watershed Council.  Excursions such as “weed walks” educate the public on how to find, report and dispose of invasive weeds that are not indigenous to Lake Tahoe.  These weeds damage water quality, out-compete native plants, degrade plant and animal habitat and increase the risk of wild-land fire.
To make reservations for this month’s meeting, email Ellen Magnani at [email protected].  Potential members and guests are welcome.  The luncheon meeting is from 11:30 to 1:30 at the cost of $17.00. Visit

California Housing Market Is Expected to Be Up in 2014
With the value of discounted properties continue to appreciate, investors are paring their purchases of distressed homes as their profit margin narrows.  As investors take a step back, inventory will likely improve slightly in the upcoming year.  Meanwhile, the increase in home prices will also encourage more homeowners to put their houses up for sale. The housing supply will grow and should gradually climb back from under three months in 2013 to about four months in 2014.
