Placer County Board of Supervisors Reception ~ Thanks for Coming!

Again, Joe Lanza and Eli Covell from the Hacienda restaurant were over-the-top catering the Placer County Board of Supervisors reception at the Museum on Tuesday – thanks again!   We also want to thank all the supervisors that attended as well as all of the local Tahoe dignitaries.   Special thanks to Bill Clark who spoke about the status and continued efforts for the Squaw Valley Ski Museum Foundation project and for hosting the reception. And finally, thanks to everyone who came and made it another great museum event! Next Event – Elegant Affair (Friday before Thanksgiving)
