GOLF PRO BEGINS SECOND SEASON

Jeremy Dunkason

PGA Golf Pro Jeremy Dunkason begins his second season at the Lake Almanor Country Club Golf Course on the Peninsula. Although gated, this challenging and immaculately groomed course is open to the public. Jeremy has been a PGA pro for 30 years, 15 of those years at the Mission Viejo Country Club and seven at the Mt. Shasta Golf Resort. As an instructor, he said he enjoys working with players at all levels of the game and likes to initially put a lot of emphasis in their short game — chipping and putting. Jeremy enjoys working out several times a week at Lake Almanor Fitness and can’t speak highly enough about their staff. He spends his winters in England where he was born and still has family. He came to the United States when he was 8 and now enjoys dual citizenship. The course, by the way, has some terrific early season specials for both nine and 18 holes including cart.

TWO QUINCY STORES’ SIDEWALK SALES

This Saturday, May 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Quincy Hot Spot in East Quincy (next to the Polka Dot) and Forest Stationers in downtown Quincy (across from the Courthouse), are each having a huge sidewalk sale. Tables in front and inside each store will be packed with an incredible assortment of gifts and merchandise remarkably under-priced — starting at just 50 cents! If you’ve been in these stores and know their respective owners, DeeDee Driscoll and Cheryl Reinitz, then you know the kind of merchandise these two ladies are famous for buying and the bargains that await us shoppers.

While at the Hot Spot, voters will have a chance to meet Tim Driscoll (no relation to DeeDee or Don). He is a candidate for supervisor for District 5, which includes East Quincy eastward to Graeagle and Blairsden. Tim will be there from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

12th ANNUAL BENEFIT TAKEOUT LUNCH

It’s time once again to help support the Quincy United Methodist Church’s ever-so-popular weekly Community Supper program by participating in this year’s Benefit Takeout Lunch.

You can pick up your lunches Thursday, May 17, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Quincy Methodist Church’s Fellowship Hall. This has become a tradition for the staffs at offices and businesses to make a $10 donation and rally around this worthy cause while enjoying a terrific lunch artfully prepared by Caron and her staff. Orders should be placed by this Friday, May 11, by calling 283-1740.
