Truckee Celebrates a Quarter Century

Twenty-five years ago, and 130 years after it was established, Truckee incorporated following a heated debate about a proposed Kmart, on land where the Coburn Crossing development is currently being built. The event was memorialized in a town photo of over 1,500 people at Donner Lake’s West End Beach, and Moonshine Ink was a proud sponsor. Our publisher Mayumi Elegado (with sunflower headdress) and graphic designer Lauren Shearer with son Xavier, all attended the beach party on Sept. 8 and can be seen in the image if you look really, really, really closely. The community gathered for a town portrait in 2000 as well, at which Elegado donned the same headpiece.
