Epilog & company in Graeagle
    Looks like eastern Plumas shoppers will be getting some of Quincy’s best with the opening of Epilog & Company in downtown Graeagle. Chris Crawford of Epilog Books, Cheryl Reinitz of Forest Stationers and Dee Dee Driscol of Quincy Hot Spot have teamed-up to offer an exciting assortment of product mix from each of these fine Quincy stores creating what I would                                                                                               call truly a shopper’s paradise.

Two attend national conference
    Wendi Durkin and Marc Vieira of Prudential Lake Almanor Real Estate recently attended Prudential’s national conference in Austin, Texas.  The convention provided brokers and agents the opportunity to develop skills and network with peers. “Attending allowed Marc and I to receive the tools needed to augment our training methods and further develop our real estate skills,” said Wendi, who is the broker/owner, Prudential Lake Almanor Real Estate.  “It’s imperative for our sales professionals to have the knowledge and experience to continually promote the Prudential Real Estate brand, increase their productivity and help our company recruit and retain top-notch professionals.”
Wendi also said they enjoyed the humor and knowledge speakers Scott Hamilton, Olympic figure skater, and Bill Rancic, winner of TV’s first episode of  “The Apprentice,” shared with attendees.

Catering for all occaisions
    In addition to “getting your java kicks on Route 66,” Julie Rohrs and Ken and Dorinda Hess, co-owners of Main Street Coffee Bar in Chester, offer catering for all occasions. By the way, they have a new lunch menu featuring an assortment of tantalizing hot and cold sandwiches and daily specials.

Landscaping business relocates
    Gary Boatright has relocated his Chester-based business, Rockhound Landscaping, to 152 Main Street, Slusher Plumbing’s former location in Old Town Chester. Out of this more convenient and visible location Gary will continue to offer his myriad of landscaping services to folks in Plumas and Lassen counties as he has since 1981.

Several businesses reopen
    Ivan Tochev, owner and chef, has reopened Luciano’s Cucina di Pasta on Peninsula Drive at Lake Almanor for the season. Diners are certain to enjoy “the experience” of Chef Ivan’s fine Italian cuisine.

    x Back from a well deserved vacation in Czechoslovakia, Filip and Eva are opening the Red  Onion Grill in Chester Friday, April 23. The dinning room has been remodeled and their menu refreshed.

    x With the snow almost gone and warmer weather ahead, Clio’s River Edge RV Park is also open for the season. The only comment owners Kevin and Gloria LaPlant had as they returned for their 12th season was “Boy, time does fly when you’re having fun!”

Update on Moons Restaurant
    Some of the activity you might have noticed around Moons Restaurant in Quincy is that of Cole Dunbar and Jeffery McMahon, the new owners. Cole was raised in Quincy and returned after graduating from culinary school. Jeffery moved here from Minnesota 8 months ago. Plans include opening for lunch and dinner serving homemade regional American cuisine in late May or early June. Future plans include a microbrewery.

New infrared sauna

    Located above the Grey Squirrel in Chester, Upstairs Day Spa owners Dawn Lee and Lisa Phillips tell us they now have the Health Mate Sauna. They said this is not a traditional stream sauna; it uses infrared rays that work by conversion where heat is transfer directly to the body without having to heat the air first. They said it allows for a deeper sweat while breathing more easily with less energy loss.

Fun, flexibility exercise classes
    Instructor Jennelle Verderber is conducting a Fun, Flexibility and Creative Enrichment Class at Lake Almanor Fitness Center for children, ages 3-5. She said the classes are designed to enhance flexibility and physical development, while inspiring creativity and self-awareness. For more information, call the Chester facility today.
