Cleaning business opens
With decades of experience and a passion for cleaning on her resume, Suzann Ramoz decided it was time to go into business for herself with the opening of Suzann’s Cleaning Service. The 25-year Chester resident provides complete inside cleaning services for homes and vacation rentals, and for businesses. She plans to include outdoor cleaning and landscaping services as well.

HELP THE BANK WITH SCHOOL SUPPLIES

The Plumas Bank offices in Quincy and Chester are organizing a School Supply Drive and they are reaching out to their communities for help. Pam Johnson, lead organizer of the Quincy drive, said, “Every student deserves to have the tools they need to be successful in school. Let’s work together to give them a good start!” You can stop by the bank offices in Quincy or Chester to see a list of requested supplies. You are asked to purchase as many as you can, then drop the items off at either branch by Thursday, Sept. 27.

“You will be making a big difference in the lives of our youth, and you will also have a chance to win one of two gift certificates at each branch. Thank you in advance for your help and consideration,” said Vanessa Leal, who is organizing the Chester school supply drive.   

Some of the items needed include glue, pencils, pens, colored pencils, zippered pencil pouches, post-it-notes, washable markers, dry erase markers, erasers, binders, scissors, hand sanitizer, tissue and granola bars.

SPECIALS INCLUDE FREE KID’S MEAL

Lucio and Elvira Macias at the Express Coffee Shop have introduced some new specials during the week. For example, on Mondays, kids 12 and younger can eat items off the kid’s menu for free. On Tuesdays, there is a deal on tacos; Wednesdays and Thursdays, there is a two-for-one margarita with the purchase of dinner and the same two-for-one offer for a glass of wine on Friday with dinner. Just a reminder, they serve prime rib on Friday and Saturday and the first Saturday each month they offer their very popular authentic Mexican food special.
