Chamber Mixer At Almanor

The Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau is having its first spring mixer Thursday, April 26, 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Carol’s Cafe and West Shore Deli in Prattville. Host and owner Carol Franchetti — who, with 41 years under her belt, can lay claim to being the longest operating restaurant under the same ownership in the area — will serve an assortment of delectables offered on her menu. Call 258-2426 to RSVP for the chamber mixer.


on the move in graeagle

Bequette and Kimmel Accountancy Corporation is moving its Graeagle office May 1 to Village Center, Suite 6. John Kimmel and staff will have their own space inside the offices of attorney David Heaslett. Combining offices and these two professionals makes a lot of sense for many reasons. Most importantly, it’ll be good for many of their mutual clients who have estate planning issues that need to be addressed by a CPA and/or an attorney whose respective practices include estate planning. As an aside, this move doesn’t affect Bequette and Kimmel’s office at 307 West Main St., Quincy.


home inspection services

Licensed general contractor Richard Davis has expanded his services. The 38-year Quincy resident has renamed his business Davis Home Inspection and Construction. After 23 years in the construction trade, Richard knows the ins and outs and is now home inspection services to both buyers and sellers. He can be reached at 283-0687.

bargain boutique’s grand opening

The Plumas District Hospital Volunteers’ Bargain Boutique grand reopening celebration is Saturday, April 14, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Come by the new spacious location at 405 Main St. (across from Sweet Lorraine’s) for refreshments, drawings and 50 percent off everything in store (except green tagged items).

This month also marks the volunteers’ 34th anniversary and the 30th year for the Bargain Boutique.  Some history: In 1978, the group reorganized and eventually opened the thrift shop on Main Street in Quincy. Proceeds were — and still are — used to help the hospital purchase equipment. The PDH Volunteers are proud to recount their first major donation in the mid-1980s: new lobby furniture valued then at over $2,000. Today, the Bargain Boutique is the main source of income for the Volunteers. To date, over $400,000 has been donated to PDH for equipment and student scholarships. Other volunteer activities included wine tastings, the Tel Care program and helping raise money for a CAT scan machine.
