AUTHOR MEET AND GREET
Author and illustrator Dora Mitchell was at a launching party for her new book, Wednesday, June 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Barn Owl Books in downtown Quincy. Dora’s home in Northern California, surrounded by dark woods where the evidence of mining days can still be found hidden away among the trees, gave her the inspiration for the setting of her debut novel, The Haunted Serpent.
GRAND OPENING IN NEW LOCATION
Join the festivities this Friday, June 8, at Mountain Mattress’ as owners Amy, Zack and Gary host a grand opening in their new location on Main Street across from the Plumas Pines Shopping Center. It gets underway at 5 p.m. featuring lots of goodies and live music by Passive & Co. Besides offering a terrific selection of mattresses with quality name brands like Simmons, Serta and Beautyrest, just to name a few, the store also carries sheets, bedspreads, blankets, frames, headboards, bedroom furniture, sofa sleepers and more — all with pricing comparable to what you’d find in the big stores in the big cities but right here at home!
BUSINESS GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND
Received a note from reader Peter Towne in Roseville regarding an experience he had at one of our local businesses that is certainly worth sharing. “I would love to give a heart-felt shout out of thanks toScott at Mohawk Trading Co. in Greenville. He had completed his day of work and probably headed home when he heard my car drop most of its strike plate and begin a long screeching entry into town. Just when I was sure I was stuck for the night, Scott came around the end of the building, re-opened his shop, and saved the day. In these times, it’s rare to find a person that will go the extra mile. Scott is that rare gem who went out of his way to help get this stranger back on his way to vacation — didn’t present me a bill! I go through Greenville often on my way to Lake Almanor and will always recommend this business to anyone who needs automotive help.”
HAIR, NAILS AND MORE IN NEW LOCALE
Great Northern Hair Co. is now fully operational in its new location at 117 Redberg Ave. in East Quincy, just a block off Highway 70 from their old location. Although partners JoAnn and GraceAnn have downsized a bit, they still do hair and nails, have their tanning bed and carry hair and skin care products.
ANNIVERSARY OPEN HOUSE COMING
Madden Plumbing and Heating in Quincy is celebrating 42 years in business this month and will be having an open house planned for later this month to commemorate the anniversary. After moving here from Palo Alto in 1976, Jim and Judi Madden opened the business out their garage before moving to their current location at 2289 East Main St. in 1982. With Jim being a fifth-generation tradesmen and a second-generation plumber, going out on his own was second nature. After 48 years of marriage, two children, and two grandchildren, Jim and Judy are showing no signs of slowing down. Services offered include heating, air conditioning, plumbing, custom sheet metal fabrication and everything in between — including the kitchen sink. They can get you into hot water when you don’t have any and get you out of hot water when you are in trouble.
