CALPINE ELKS CRAB FEED IS ON!

The Calpine Elks Lodge had originally scheduled its popular crab fed in January, but had to cancel because the crab they needed wasn’t available at that time. The problem has been solved; they have a source for plenty of fresh crab so the Lodge has rescheduled the Crab Feed for Friday and Saturday, Feb. 16–17.

QUINCY CHAMBER’S EGG HUNT IS ON

Matthew Kitchens said the Quincy Chamber of Commerce is “egg-sited” to bring a new event to town, the first Easter Scramble — an Easter Egg hunt and a game all in one! Beginning Thursday, March 15, players can purchase a playing card from the Quincy Chamber of Commerce at The Toy Store for $1 each.

Quincy Chamber member businesses can sign up to participate in this event now through Feb. 15 by paying a $25 fee to the Chamber and completing a brief registration form which can be found online at quincychamber.com or at The Toy Store. Space is limited to the first 30 businesses to return their completed registration form and payment. Not a Chamber member yet?  Sign up today at quincychamber.com.

Players take their playing card to each participating Chamber member business and locate the Golden Egg inside the business. When the player has completed their card, they fill in their contact information on the back of the card and return it to The Toy Store by March 31. All completed cards are placed into a drawing and the winner, selected April 5, receives $100 worth of merchandise or services from whichever participating business they choose.
