Business Scene for the week of 3/29/17

DR. FRIDEN POSTS NEW HOURS

Making sure they continue to meet the needs of their patients, Friden Optometry’s Quincy office on Central Avenue behind the Plumas Pines Shopping Center has new hours. They are open Monday through Thursday, from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and closed for lunch from noon-12:30 p.m.

MOONS RESTAURANT REOPENS

On Thursday, March 30, after a well-earned and much needed spring break, Moon’s Restaurant reopens. Owners Mike and Lisa Kelly kick off their sixth season as owners with lots of new items on their spring menu. They’re open Thursday through Monday, at 5 p.m. until May 1, at which time they will be open seven days a week. The iconic Quincy dinner house is well known for its pastas, steaks, pizzas and assorted nightly specials.

… AND ANOTHER TAKES A BREAK

Filip and Eva Laboda, owners of Lake Almanor’s family owned and operated Red Onion Grill & Bar, are ready to take their much-needed spring break and annual refurbishing. They will be closed through April 10. They are on Peninsula Drive next to Peninsula Market.

STAFFORD RETURNS TO NAKOMA

This Friday, March 31, musician Tyler Stafford returns to Nakoma Resort’s FLoW lounge. This talented young man was named Reno’s Best Songwriter in 2013 and has played some of the biggest stages Reno has to offer. His songs often draw comparisons to songwriters like John Mayer and Paul Simon with a delivery reminiscent of John Lennon. Lounge opens at 4 p.m. and his performance starts at 5 p.m. No cover, reservations appreciated. The resort is located near Clio.

SPECIAL OFFER FOR PET CARE

With April designated as national Heartworm Awareness Month, veterinarian Dr. Doyle Rolston is offering special discounts for heartworm tests and exams if needed — a current exam within the last year is required to start preventative medication. Don’t let your dog be one of 250,000 dogs infected with this fatal, but preventable condition. Dr. Rolston is the longtime owner of Indian Creek Veterinary Clinic on Old Arlington Road in Crescent Mills.

ANNUAL JOB FAIR APRIL 4 – 5

The Business and Career Network is holding its 21st annual job fair in Quincy at the Feather River College gym Tuesday, April 4, and in Graeagle at the Fire Department on Wednesday, April 5. Both fairs run 2 to 4 p.m. Admission is free. Coordinator Val Bourque says this is a great opportunity for both job seekers and for employers looking for a perfect opportunity to build a workforce, create an applicant pool, meet, and pre-screen and interview prospective employees.

Their offices are located on Quincy Junction Road across from Quincy High School.
