HONORING A SPECIAL GROUP OF FOLKS

The Quincy Crazy Quilters is celebrating its 15th anniversary this month. Members meet on the third Thursday each month at 6 p.m. at the Plumas Bank administrative building (behind Safeway). The group — and there are 25 members now — makes “cuddle quilts” that are donated to charities, foster children and hospice. They also provide the California Highway Patrol and sheriff’s department with quilts to carry in their vehicles to use as necessary. By the way, quilts are on display at the Quincy library.

TAKE AIM THIS TOURIST SEASON

Hard to believe, but yes it’s time once again to begin focusing our attention on tourism this summer in Plumas County and the ever-so-important impact it has on our local economy.

With that in mind, we are already working on Feather Publishing Co.’s annual Plumas County Visitors Guide —it’s actually a work in progress all year long.

The full-color, high-quality magazine is packed full of information (last year it was 132 pages) detailing virtually everything our county has to offer to both visitors and locals alike. Some 90,000 copies will be distributed free to hundreds of locations in our region throughout 2015.
