Meals For Life at The Express Coffee Shop
The Express Coffee Shop will be setting all profits aside on Sat. Oct. 25 to aid the sister-in-law of the owner, Lucio Macias in her fight with liver cancer. Josefina Rodriquez contracted Hepatitis C some time ago. In the process of treating that illness, doctors discovered that she had a cancer in her liver. She is on a donor list, but must undergo two weeks of treatment in Arizona before a transplant can take place. The treatment can cost up to $10,000 plus living expenses while she is in Arizona and will place a heavy financial burden on the family.

It was a Monday afternoon at Dawn Gardens, an organic produce farm in Indian Falls. Intern Maggie (Magnolia) Barrett weighed 3-pound bags of fresh-picked apples while Manuel Boehmer, farm manager, greeted a friend who came to help repair a piece of equipment. The farm is currently in preparation for Apple Fest 2014.
The 26th annual Apple Festival is set for Sunday, Oct. 26, starting at noon. Guests are invited at no charge to come and juice apples from the farm, or their own apples if they choose to bring them. There will be four cider presses at the party for everyone to use.

Flash forward two years. Diego and Tiffiney sold their home, quit their jobs and are about to embark on a new adventure.
The couple told their story Oct. 7 to a packed room during the opening reception for Quincy Collective, a new endeavor by life coach Katie Bagby.
