Our website has been updated with a new coupon tab uploaded with current coupons which can be printed in an individual PDF format! Check it out! http://www.tahoebusinesses.com We are also adding a Face Book feed and a community donations tab.
Old Business: The coupon book deadline is “this Wednesday”. No additions or changes will be allowed after Aug. 10th due to timely advertising for fall specials. Carol e-mailed our group on Friday August 5th a form to get to Sherri at Max Designs on, or before Wednesday the 10th for additions or changes to your coupon, or directory information.
The group decided perforating coupons would be to expensive so a suggestion was make to put a scissor sign for cutting in the top corner of each coupon instead.

Business of the Week: Cardinale Way. Next week – Paradise Real Estate. (We had a glitch and are now back on schedule). Starting in October our newest businesses will begin being featured as Business of the week.
