Business Scene for the week of 9/5/2014
CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION SATURDAY
The Plumas Club in downtown Quincy is having its 100th birthday celebration this Saturday, Sept. 6. Family-friendly activities will be held outdoors on Railway Avenue — which will be closed to traffic between Lawrence and Main — including live music, face painting, a Wild West gunslinger show, gold panning demos, food vendors and more. Owner Marjorie Canady encourages everyone to dress in early 1900s attire and get prizes geared to the early 1900s.
ANNUAL VACCINATION CLINIC
Doyle Rolston, DVM, and his staff at the Indian Creek Veterinarian Clinic are holding their annual reduced-price vaccination clinic on Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Evergreen Market parking lot in Greenville from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Staff from Plumas County Animal Control will be there as well providing quick pet licensing services.
ONE MORE FIRST FRIDAY IN CHESTER
We need to correct an item in last week’s column regarding the very successful First Friday Art Shows at The Blue Goose Gallery of Artists in Chester. We inadvertently indicated that the reception held on the last Friday of the month, Aug. 29, was the last gathering for the season. Not so: there is one more First Friday Art Show on Oct. 3, and it will be the final for the season. We apologize for the confusion.
QUINCY STORE ADDS NEW PAINT LINE
Gary and Mary Vogt have added Pratt & Lambert Paint to the paint department at their Quincy store, American Valley Hardware, in the Plumas Pines Shopping Center. The paint manufacturers’ top sellers are the Pro-Hide contractors grade and the Accolade Interior, a paint and primer that delivers easy application with a vibrant long-lasting finish. This new product is a nice complement to the full line of Sherwin-Williams paint products they will continue to carry.
LAKE ALMANOR’S CENTENNIAL STAMP
In recognition of Lake Almanor’s 100th birthday, Robin and Carol Rycraft, owners of Rycraft Ceramic Stamps, have designed and produced a commemorative handcrafted “Lake Almanor’s Centennial” cookie stamp as well as a commemorative ornament. Both can be found at their store on Main Street in Old Towne Chester.
AUTO PAINT MATCHED AND DELIVERED
Auto paint for touchups and refinishing is available from the Intermountain Paint Centers, aka Chester Paint Center, Susanville Paint Center and Quincy Paint Center. It’s actually stocked at the Susanville location, but with the convenience of their three locations you can bring or call in your vehicle’s color code to your local store and the Susanville staff will provide the exact match and have it delivered to their store nearest you.
IT’S BEEN NINE YEARS IN QUINCY
Gary and Bee at Sweet Lorraine’s on Main Street in downtown Quincy across from the Main Street Sports Bar celebrate their ninth year running this popular lunch and dinner restaurant. Gary extends a special thanks to his “terrific staff” and “fantastic customers” for helping make his restaurant a success. Besides being known for his establishment’s friendly atmosphere, Chef Gary has made quite a reputation for his prowess around the kitchen. His hearty and tasty lunch sandwiches, along with his daily specials and mouth-watering steaks, seafood or pasta on the dinner menu, are sure to please even the most discriminating palate.
