Holiday Celebration & Toy Collection and Election of 2024 Board Officers
December 6, 2023
Thunder Valley Casino Resort
1200 Athens Avenue, Lincoln, CA
Spread the holiday spirit with your colleagues at SHA’s Holiday Reception on December 6, 2023. This year’s reception is hosted by Thunder Valley Casino Resort.
SHA will again share its goodwill with the Stanford Settlement Neighborhood Center with our annual toy drive and our new board officers will be elected.
Stanford Settlement Neighborhood Center – Donate New, Unwrapped Toys
Bring a new unwrapped toy (no toy guns/weapons) to the Holiday Reception. The Association will donate the collected toys to Operation Cratchit, a project of the Stanford Settlement Neighborhood Center. Operation Cratchit (remember Scrooge?) serves more than 775 households in North Sacramento (about 3,400 individuals – 1,600 of them children receiving a new toy/gift).
To qualify for a Holiday Basket, families register at the Center. Baskets include a box of nonperishable foods, a grocery store voucher to purchase fresh holiday food items and a new toy/gift for each child in the household aged 15 and younger. A parent or guardian from each household personally selects a gift for each of their children in the Center’s gift room.
At the Holiday Reception, enjoy festive socializing with your hospitality industry colleagues and take the opportunity to give back to those in need this holiday season. Savory hors d’oeuvres and libations will be served.
Also at the December meeting, members will elect the 2024 SHA Board Officers.
5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Reception and Toy Collection

Accommodations are on the front line of ensuring the health and safety of their employees and visitors as hotel guests begin to return for overnight stays. Whether it’s for business or a chance to relieve pandemic-related cabin fever for a night, guests have high expectations for the cleanliness of their rooms and the hotel. Nikki Carlson, General Manager for the Kimpton Sawyer, lays out what her hotel is doing so guests feel safe and comfortable. (Please note: This podcast was recorded prior to the closure of bars and nightclubs, and closure of indoor dining locations.

The American Hotel and Lodging Association is committed to helping hoteliers on the road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The resources from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health organizations will be valuable in helping hotels maximize participation in the vaccination process. Maximizing employee participation in vaccination is a key step to protecting employees and guests as well as ensuring the hotel industry recovers. The resources at https://www.ahla.com/safe-stay-vaccination-center can be utilized by hoteliers to educate, inform, and encourage vaccination among employees.
