QUICK SUMMER VACATION

Kara Rockett-Arsenault, owner of Barn Owl Books, and her husband David Arsenault, owner of Feather River Outdoors, are taking a short family vacation later this month so both Main Street Quincy businesses will be closed from Aug. 20 thru Aug. 26.

… AND SPEAKING OF BARN OWL BOOKS

Kara says that for those who like the convenience of shopping online, but still want to support locally owned businesses like Barn Owl Books she’s made it a bit easier. You can now visit barnowlbookshop.com where you will find an extensive selection of paperback and hardback books and audio books from her store online.

LIVE MUSIC FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS

Josh and Kelly Hunter, the new owners of The Peak in downtown Graeagle, host a summer concert series every Friday and Saturday, from 6 to 9 p.m., in their outdoor venue while enjoying wine, beer and perhaps a fine cigar from their extensive selection.

This Friday enjoy the sounds of me&you, the brother and sister duo that blends their folk, Americana and country roots for all to enjoy.

On Saturday, singer, songwriter and guitarist Heather McAdams will entertain guests with an eclectic show of popular songs and originals ranging from jazz and blues to pop and rock and roll.

Plumas Physical Therapy has offices in Quincy and Graeagle.

AUTO BODY REPAIRS IN CHESTER

Pete Neely has made a slight change to the name of his Chester business; Almanor Certified Welders is now known as Almanor Auto Body & Welding. With extensive previous experience as an auto body collision repair technician, Pete has added that service to his Main Street shop featuring Deltron’s PPG paint system and downdraft paint booth designed for any collision repair job that leaves a lustrous clear finish. His certified welding shop also offers a mobile service in their fully equipped service truck.
