GARDNERVILLE, Nev., May 12, 2015 — On the heels of a busy Monday afternoon, we’re looking at a packed Tuesday as well.

Invited guests got to tour the newly-restored Farmers Bank Building, now headquarters for Bently Enterprises, Monday evening. The rest of the public will get their shot today as part of the Minden Street Celebration on Esmeralda Avenue from 3 to 6 p.m. If you get a chance to go, we can’t recommend it strongly enough. The amount of detail and attention that has gone into restoring the building is incredible.

Here’s just a small taste – a table sitting in the former bank vault (now receiving area/meeting room) constructed of one of the former vault doors.


The street celebration itself will run from 4-6 p.m.  The Historical Society and Dangberg Home Ranch will be hosting a Lemonade Stand where you can record your favorite memories of Minden. Corner Bar will offer food and drink specials, and All Hat No Cattle will serenade you while you eat. Local vendors include Killer Salsa, Italian Hearts Pasta Sauces, Bently Ranch Meats, and Blind Dog Coffee. Lawn games will be set up in the park, and a balloon artiste will be creating balloon animals. Main Street Minden will be there with information about the program, and to learn what you want to see in Minden. COD Casino will be offering conversations about the fabulous museum pieces in their collection.

We’re told the Heritage room is a must see.

Also, this morning, the Douglas County Public Library, Minden Branch will host Toddler Storytime at 10:30 a.m. and Preschool Storytime at 11:15 a.m. The Minden branch of the library is located at 1625 Library Lane.

And the Genoa Town Twirlers are hosting beginning square dancing lessons each Tuesday during the month of May, from 6:30 –7:45 p.m. For more information, call John Hall, Caller at 775-461-3498 or 775-267-2198. Your first class is free. $6 per week, per person after that. No special attire needed, come as you are.  Refreshments served.

It’ll be windy out today, with gusts up to 40 mph and high of 64 degrees. The wind should die off by tomorrow, but we have a pretty decent chance at more rain starting Thursday and continuing through the weekend.

That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
