RECEPTION FOR ARTIST CHRIS WEST
This Saturday, Aug. 12, from 1 – 3 p.m., there is an artist’s reception — with refreshments, of course — at the Red House Art and Jewelry Gallery located on the park in downtown Graeagle. Meet and visit with local artist Chris West and see his latest pastel paintings on local scenery and some done on a recent trip to Ghost Ranch, New Mexico. Having recently retired and becoming a permanent resident of Graeagle, Chris is finding time once again to paint. His early work consisted of bronze still life and figurative work in oil, but now he works in pastel capturing nature and landscapes in Plumas County and across the country.
HAPPY HOUR AT LONGBOARDS
Only one thing better then the spectacular view overlooking the Plumas Pines Golf course from the patio-deck at Longboards Bar & Grill in Blairsden would be discounted cocktails. Well, now you can relax, enjoy the view and save two bucks on beer, wine and well drinks during their happy hour, 3 – 5 p.m. daily.

CHESTER BUSINESS EXPANDS
As Intermountain Hardware and Supply in Chester begins its second year of business, CEO Jerry Newell thought it was the perfect time to expand, so they did! Store manager Mark Guillory said they knocked out some interior walls to take advantage of unused space, which is where they moved their sporting goods inventory giving them more room for ammo, fishing merchandise, an expanded souvenir clothing section, water toys and more. Mark also invites you to drop by and see a demonstration of the new Interactive Information Center. It provides a complete visual of Lake Almanor and can pinpoint fishing, biking, hiking, hunting and other points of interest.
This building is also home to the firm’s other businesses, Chester Paint Center and Intermountain Power Equipment.
