Share Your Christmas - But Some Catechism & Thanksgiving First, Please!

Share Your Christmas at the CVI on Friday, December 9!  Hard to believe the annual KTVN Share Your Christmas Drive-By Food Drive is only three weeks away!  Raley’s Gardnerville is making donations easy with their $10 grocery bags. Channel 2 has information on their website and so does the Carson Valley Community Food Closet, the recipient of all the Minden location donations. What can you bring? It’s all on the list on this page. Who is anchoring the event? KTVN’s Arianna Bennett, Ryan Canaday and Zac Mooney who have all been at our location before and certainly “know the drill!” Join us on December 9 from 6 AM to 6 PM.

What Could Sister Be Looking For?
Find Out December 1 or 2!
What the Heck is Sister’s Christmas Catechism? It's "CSI: Bethlehem" in a holiday mystery/comedy extravaganza from the authors of Late Nite Catechism. Join the fun (or be part of it!) as Sister takes on the mystery that has intrigued historians throughout the ages - whatever happened to the Magi's gold?  We know Mary used the frankincense and myrrh as a sort of potpourri - they were in a barn after all. And now, 2000 years later, thanks to the recent passing of State Question 2, it can be more than potpourri!  Anyway, back on point:  Retelling the story of the nativity, as only Sister can, this hilarious holiday production has Sister employing her own scientific tools and, assisted by a local choir as well as a gaggle of audience members, creating a living nativity unlike any you've ever seen. With gifts galore and bundles of laughs, Sister’s Christmas Catechism  is a “Howling Day of Obligation” you won’t want to miss!  Sister’s Christmas Catechism runs on two consecutive nights, Thursday and Friday, December 1 and 2. The show is the same both nights – at least it starts out with that intention. Tickets are $22 and are available at the hotel desk or you can order by phone at 775-783-6606. 

Got Something Like This We Can Borrow?
Speaking of Nativity Scenes: Turns out Sister’s advance list of demands and props is extensive (what are we supposed to do, slap her hands with a ruler and say no?). These two we don’t have on hand so, if you can help us by loaning us the following for a few days (Nov. 29 – Dec 3), Sister promises to bless you with a few tickets for her show: One (1) Small Nativity Set.  A painted set is preferred and, please note, it is best that it not be an expensive set. • One (1) LARGE Lawn Nativity Set.  Let us know by sending us an email and we’ll have one of the altar boys give you a call.

Dump Him or Her, Choose Us! We're willing to bet most of our readers didn't know this Thursday is Unfriend Day. Heck, we'll even bet most of our readers, including us until we found this, didn't even know there was such a day! And if you can honestly say you have heard of it, did you also know that comedian Jimmy Kimmel founded Unfriend Day in 2014? Probably wondering where we're going with all this… There actually is a reason: while you're unfriending all the people you don't know, will you please take a minute and "like," "friend," "follow" or otherwise engage with us on Facebook and Twitter . . . Thanks!

Did You Know: Saturday is Have a Bad DayDay. In our opinion half of the country already experienced this Day a week ago Tuesday! And no, this is not us making a political statement – we wouldn't  do so because we have been most fortunate to do quite a bit of business with both major political parties and we sincerely appreciate this business. So, here's the point: “Party” is our business with many parties and other social and business events happening regularly in our Valley Ballroom. So whether or not you are having a bad day on Bad Day Day, start planning your next party or other event here at the CVI by calling Carrie today at 775-783-6673.
