Patrick and Donata at CafÈ LeCoq in Quincy have come up with a rather novel idea: They are taking orders for “picnic baskets” or “backpacks” that are stocked with delicious foods like their mouthwatering filet mignon, breast of duck or prawns with all the appropriate accompaniments. These are ideal to take home or on the road for that special afternoon or evening or to give as a gift for those special occasions.
At a recent conference, Plumas Sierra County Fair Manager John Steffanic and Maintenance Supervisor Oran Morrison became aware of an opportunity that could help local contractors. The construction arm of the California Department of Fairs and Expositions, the California Construction Authority, keeps a list of contractors wanting to be notified of projects administered by the CCA. Construction projects at California’s 78 fairgrounds total over $52 million. They range from fence construction to re-roofing projects. When any of these projects have been funded, bid packages are sent out to those contractors enrolled with the CCA.
