Rise and shine and find out what’s going on in your neck of the woods. Although the pandemic is keeping people from congregating in person, the folks of Good Morning Truckee and the First Tuesday Breakfast Club are continuing to bring you their monthly programs via a virtual format.

The First Tuesday Breakfast Club is held on, well, the first Tuesday morning of each month, of course. This community forum is presented by the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association/Chamber of Commerce and is an opportunity to learn about timely community news and project information, along with relevant updates from movers and shakers in North Lake Tahoe.
