Business Scene for the week of 7/7/2010

    Mt. Lassen Log & Timber Frame Homes owners J.R. and Windy Thompson just finished construction on one of their newest model log homes, “The Expedition,” and are having a special open house event Saturday, July 10 to show it off! Come see for yourself the quality and craftsmanship that goes into these distinctive log homes, while enjoying refreshments and entering a chance to win tickets to the upcoming Momboosa Music Festival.

    This Saturday, July 10, award winning Plein air artist Silvio Silvestri will be sharing some of his recent paintings at Red House Art on the Park in downtown Graeagle. Shop owner Brian Carl said the artist spends weeks at a time traveling the Sierras capturing the beauty of the mountain ranges on canvas.


    We’ve been stockpiling our list of anniversaries to mention. Our thanks to all those patrons for doing their part in supporting these businesses through these rather challenging and certainly changing times. It’s such a huge part of what makes living in beautiful Plumas County so special. Best wishes to all!

     Let’s start off by suggesting you treat yourself to a scoop of ice cream and a frozen yogurt pop for your dog while helping Joanie Kielty celebrate her third anniversary at Treats Dog Company in Chester. The “ice cream social” is Saturday, July 10, noon - 4 p.m.

     ABSolute Fitness & Health in Clio just celebrated its 7-year anniversary. Patti Long, owner and certified personal trainer, has been offering private or semi-private Pilates Reformer and weight training sessions, along with abs fitness sessions in a private studio. She tells us all programs are designed to meet individual needs. Schedule a free consultation by calling 836-1153.

     Avonna’s Critter Clippers Grooming and Customized Gifts on Main Street in Chester is celebrating its sixth anniversary. Avonna still offers doggie day care and has added more dog and cat supplies. She also does customized lettering, graphics and photos for gift items.

     Rick Williams is now in his 9th year with Timberline Materials on Highway 36 just west of Chester. In his type of business — selling both decorative and utility rock, soil, bark, sand and the like — Rick says he knows it takes being open seven days during the relatively short season to be successful. By the way, Rick is a huge supporter of this community in so many ways, just look at his involvement in helping the Truman Collins Sports Complex.

     Packer Lake Lodge in the Gold Lakes Basin is fully operational now for its 28th year under the ownership of Bill McQuattie. Dinner, again under the direction of Chef Mark Holmes, is open to the public and served daily except Tuesday. They also have a full bar.

    It’s the sixth year for Norbert and Christine Schneider at Schneider’s Old Time Merchants on Little Bear (campground) Road in Blairsden. This unique gift shop carries hand painted glass, cards, stuff animals and a lot more.

    And for you old-timers:  Rusty Warren opened his shop on Bell Lane in East Quincy selling a myriad of lawn and garden power tools and accessories 30 years ago. During that time, with his accumulated experience and knowledge, he has established himself as one of the best in his field. Rusty sells and services chain saws, snow and leaf blowers, lawn mowers and weed trimmers to name a few.

    Speaking of old-timers: With thirty-four years of catering to your dog and cat’s boarding and grooming needs are Bob and Dorothy Farnworth at DMF Boarding Kennels on Highway 70 just east of Quincy. Our congrats for running such a successful business.

    Leslie and Jeff Greenwood have really made a name for themselves and the quality products they build and sell at their business, Sierra Valley Barns, now in its 11th year. Some of the products they manufacture at their Highway 70 facility just east of Beckwourth include horse barns, tack rooms and economical barn-style storage buildings in a variety of sizes.

   This month marks the 12th year for Riverside Rock in Sloat. Owner Cindy Robinson sells natural stone pavers, flagstone, quartz, decorative river cobble and select landscape boulders. She also has top soil and fill material.

  Teri Haas is now in her eighth year with her very successful — as evidenced by the smiling faces on her four-legged customers — Top Dog Grooming Studio. You will find her studio located off Quincy Junction Road on Bell Lane.
