The first farmers market of the season will take place Thursday, June 20, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the lawn at Church and Main streets in Quincy.
This is the market’s 14th year of providing fresh produce, delicious hot food, local arts and crafts and high-quality live music. Thursday’s entertainment will be the ever-popular Fish Tacos. A complete lineup is available on the Quincy Certified Farmers’ Market website: quincyfarmersmarket.org.
Life is tough enough for people who come into the world with all of their faculties intact, but for those with disabilities, life is even tougher.
The ALIVE program, one of Plumas Rural Services’ many offerings, helps people with developmental disabilities live productive and enriching lives.
6/17/2013 Update 4 p.m.:
All who cared about Luke Sheehy — a Lassen County firefighter and smokejumper who died June 10 from injuries he suffered while fighting a wildfire on the Modoc National Forest — are invited to honor his life at two memorial services this weekend.
Doug Sheehy, Luke’s father, said the family invites everyone who loved and cared about Luke to attend a Day of Honor at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 22 at Walker Mansion in Westwood. Food and refreshments will be provided.
The wildland firefighting community also presents a Memorial Service at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 23 at the Redding Civic Center.
Doug Sheehy said a Luke Sheehy donation account has been opened at U.S. Bank in Susanville for those who would like to make a donation in his son’s memory.
Lifeguards aren’t the only ones who’ll be saving lives this summer. The residents of the Portola community will too — by donating blood.
Unfortunately, during the hot months of the year, donors often are in short supply, which is why United Blood Services has partnered with Northern Nevada Toyota Dealers to announce its seventh annual Driving for Donors Promotion, in which all presenting donors can enter to win a 2013 Toyota Corolla.
The Plumas County Board of Supervisors began its June 4 meeting with a packed agenda and a full boardroom for most of the day.
Supervisors considered a host of items from honoring a public works department employee, which drew in many members of the road department crew, to discussing next year’s budget, which attracted most of the county’s department heads.
