Pieces of Me

Happiness for a Lifetime

Posted to Kristin's Kinders by Kyle Jost

“If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap. 
If you want happiness for a day — go fishing. 
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.”

Truckee Legacy Trail

Posted to Legacy Trail by Lily Munsee

The Legacy Trail is a path that goes from downtown Truckee to Pyramid Lake. Of that massive trail, the 4.8 miles from Truckee River Regional Park to Glenshire are paved and regularly plowed by the Town of Truckee. This trail is an awesome resource for our local community that allows for hiking and biking year-round. Not only does it enable recreation, but it is also used as a safe alternative transportation method by members of the community. It connects Glenshire to the town in a safe way for those on bikes and scooters that may be going to and from work and school. Additionally, the trail branches through Riverview Sports Park, allowing for children and families to use it as a route to and from sporting events.

Playing for a Living at the TDRPD Ice Rink

Posted to Playing for a Living by Lily Munsee

This week was my first week as the Marketing Specialist for TDRPD, which mostly consisted of going to the multitude of TDRPD events constantly happening. I got to see a wide variety of art classes with Ceramics, Boho Beatnik, and Art Scapes in the Community Arts Building. I visited Aqua Fit, where the whole class informed me that next time I better bring my swimsuit and join them, as well as some of our other adult sports programs like Basketball, Ai Chi, and Chair Yoga. Another place I was encouraged to visit was our Ice Rink, so I gathered a group of friends, and we embarked on Truckee River Regional Park.
