GARDNERVILLE, Nev., March 13, 2015 – The Douglas High softball team suffered its first loss of the young season Thursday afternoon in Sacramento, falling 5-1 to St. Francis, Calif.
The Lady Tigers take on West Campus (Sacramento) and Vacaville today.
Douglas baseball travels to Damonte Ranch for a 3:45 p.m. game this afternoon.
C.C. Meneley Elementary School will host its annual Friendship Dinner from 5 to 7 p.m. tonight. Cost is $5 per adult and $3 per child or $15 for a family of four or more. Cost includes pasta and all the fixings. There will also be a silent auction and raffle prizes, and an appearance by Meneley’s mascot, “Monty” the mountain lion.
In a story that probably only I and anyone who attended the school before the early 90s would care about, I want to know when Meneley became the Mountain Lions and how that happened. When I went, we were the “Superstars,” which was officially the best team name ever conceived. Bonus points for anyone can send in a picture of the old Meneley T-shirts with stars bursting out of a cloud.
Back to today’s calendar. Douglas High’s Drama Club hosts a fundraiser both tonight and Saturday night at 7 p.m. with a showcase of monologues, scenes and musical numbers from some of its participating members. Tickets are $10 at the door.
The Carson Valley Community Theatre also presents “Nunsense” tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the CVIC Hall in Minden. Tickets are on sale at http://www.showtix4U.com.
In today’s weather, brought to you by Sierra Chef, look for clear skies and a high of 72 degrees. Temperatures will reach nearly 80 degrees on Saturday. While the high returns to 72 degrees Sunday, the National Weather Service has moved the chance of rain to Sunday as well, continuing Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for now – though the chance is just slight.
Sierra Chef’s next cooking class will be Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Italian Hearts Pasta Sauces Kitchen, 1425 Industrial Way in Gardnerville. Chef Diane Weidinger of Heart Rock Herb & Spice is the guest instructor, covering spice blending for dishes such as Zucchini Feta Pancakes, Mini Beef Sliders, Honey Glazed Carrots and more. Ability level is for beginner adults (over 21) for the hands-on instructional session. Class size limit is 12 and cost is $75 per per person. To sign up for the class, visit this link.
That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
