Docent Linda Reid Wallace has volunteered to keep the Plumas County Museum in Quincy open on Sundays starting May 5.
As of this writing, the hours will be 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Besides cataloging artifacts, Wallace has also developed a small exhibit on volunteer fire departments of Plumas County utilizing in part items recently donated by Quincy’s Tati Erickson. Featured are a brass speaking trumpet, round bottom bucket and various patches, badges, caps and photographs.
Museum docents Sherie Grate and Keith Nicoles teamed up to rebuild the museum’s barbed wire collection display, originally assembled and donated by the late John and Gladys Gray of Quincy.
