Shining in the night

With just 10 days until Christmas, the holiday spirit is on bright display throughout western Nevada County as residents light up the night with illuminating decorations.

Those interested in driving around the community to check out how Nevada County has decked out the halls, The Union has published a Christmas lights guide in today’s edition. Go to page C3 (inside the Spotlight and Home & Garden sections) for a map and listing of some of the top displays.

An online version is also available at, where readers are able to add their own favorites to the list in order to share the holiday cheer with everyone.

Worth your support

The Union is partnering with Women of Worth to help some local children have a little brighter Christmas.

We need the support of the community to stop by The Union lobby and take a tag from our Giving Tree and purchase a gift for a local child. We also have tags with wish-list items for Hetty’s Haven and Kelly’s Kottage. Presents and donations need to be returned to The Union by Monday.

Center for the Arts partner program winners

In early November, The Center for the Arts asked members of the community, its Facebook fans and friends and email subscribers to pick their favorite nonprofit in Nevada County for The Center to partner with in 2013.

The following organizations will also be featured as 2013 Community Non-Profit Partners: Community Recovery Resources, Scooter’s Pals, Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), InConcert Sierra, Gold Country Computer Learning Center, Empire Mine Park Association, Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Coalition, Animal Place, Friends of Hospice, Partners in English Language Learning, Western Sierra Medical Clinic, and SPIRIT Peer Empowerment Center.

The Center for the Arts is committed to supporting our community through collaboration with other area not-for-profit organizations. The Center for the Arts believes that collaboration is the key to greater strength and economic stability for all who serve our region through nonprofit service.
