Become a Tahoe Donner Trooper



Believe it or not you still have about two weeks left to become a Tahoe Donner Trooper. This summer we introduced this new program to everyone who visits Tahoe Donner.

The Tahoe Donner Trooper Guide is full of challenges - from building sandcastles at the Beach Club Marina, to stopping in at Bikeworks to say hello to the friendly staff.

It’s really simple to join in the fun! Pick-up your Tahoe Donner Trooper Guide at the Trout Creek Recreation Center, the Recreation Information Hut or Member Services office at Northwoods Clubhouse. Everyone who collects stamps at five of the eight challenges will become 2012 Tahoe Donner Trooper! Winners will get a cool hat and be entered to win the grand prize. Guides must be completed by September 3 and the grand prize winner will be announced at Fall Festival on October 13.

Get outside, explore, try something new, and have fun with the entire family before the summer is over!

Stored Value

Does the term Stored Value mean anything to you while you’re at Tahoe Donner? Did you know you can put money on your Tahoe Donner Membership ID cards? It is called Stored Value. You no longer have to carry money or your credit card with you when you visit Tahoe Donner’s amenities. It’s very easy to put value (money) on your card. You can come into the Member Services office with your credit card and Tahoe Donner staff can put the money on your card for you. Or you can call them at (530) 587-9400 ext. 0.

To redeem your stored value, simply tell the Tahoe Donner staff that you have Stored Value on your Tahoe Donner Member or Guest ID card. Your receipt will display the balance left on the ID card.

Remember to always take your Tahoe Donner Member or Guest ID card with you to use stored value at the amenities. This program was introduced last summer and received rave reviews and participation. So, don’t worry about carrying your wallet, stored value and your membership ID or Guest card is all you need this summer at your personal resort.

Volunteer



Get involved by volunteering with Tahoe Donner!

Tahoe Donner’s volunteer program provides members with an opportunity to get involved in the Tahoe Donner and Truckee/Tahoe Community. You can get involved and get first-hand experience in providing recreational opportunities and benefits to amenities through various opportunities including event preparation and crew participation, club related volunteer events/activities, and leadership of other volunteers.

Additionally, we will be linking members who are interested in volunteer work with Tahoe Donner club activities and events, as well as Truckee/Tahoe events like Truckee Clean Up Day and the annual Truckee River Day. Tahoe Donner clubs such as the Tennis Club, Friends of the Tahoe Donner Trails Club, Senior Alpine Ski Club, and Men’s Golf Club all have a multitude of activities and events with volunteer aspects to make their programs successful.

Our most recent Board of Directors Election is also an excellent example of volunteerism in Tahoe Donner.  We have five very active volunteers who have committed their time to be on the board of directors, but they are also supported by active volunteer committees which provide excellent resources for the board and management alike.  We thank them for their efforts and continued commitment to Tahoe Donner.

Summer 2013 Trails Volunteer Opportunities

We have had a great turnout for various volunteer events this summer, including the June Trails Day, Golf Course and Downhill Ski Area clean up days, Sugar Pine tree planting, and Alder Creek Meadows clean up day. We’ll have another clean up day in September. See our Trails Volunteer page for more information and updates.

How You Can Get Involved:

Request to be on the Tahoe Donner Volunteer Group. Individuals, families or groups on this list will be contacted for every volunteer opportunity. Tahoe Donner Volunteer Group enrollment requests are made directly to Annie Rosenfeld, Director of Facilities and Risk Management at arosenfeld@tahoedonner.com.

Request to be on a specific event volunteer list. Individuals, families or groups can request to be on a specific event volunteer crew. Specific TDA Management contact will be given for each event for members to contact and enroll for volunteer activities.

Get involved with a Tahoe Donner chartered club. Many of the chartered clubs have active volunteer programs which directly benefit their “home” amenity.

Finally, offerings of upcoming volunteer events will be communicated in the Monday Member email blasts. If you are not receiving this important Tahoe Donner business-related communication, please email comdep@tahoedonner.com to request enrollment.
