SIERRA HOSPICE’S NEW DIRECTOR
Matt Moore has been selected as the director and hospice coordinator for Sierra Hospice in Chester. He received his Master’s Degree in public administration from the University of Nevada, Reno. Matt moved to this area so he could enjoy the area’s serenity with his four-legged friend, Buddy. Located next to Seneca Hospital, Sierra Hospice has been providing care and compassion to the community since 1981.
ALL ABOARD SANTA’S TRAIN
This is the last weekend — I’m referring to this Friday and Saturday to be exact — to take a ride with Santa on his special trains that departs from the Western Pacific Railroad Museum in Portola. The museum doors are open from 4 to 9 p.m. and the trains start departing the station at 5 p.m. Exhibits, goodies, treats and photo ops with Santa — bring the family!
PURCHASES BENEFIT LOCAL CAUSES
And with Christmas just around the corner, we want to remind shoppers that Gary and Mary Vogt, as they have done for years and years, are donating a portion of their daily sales receipts at American Valley Hardware in the Plumas Pines Shopping Center in Quincy to local charities and worthy organizations through Dec. 24. The ad in this week’s Feather River Bulletin shows each day’s beneficiary.
Your Money — Your community. The list of recipients the Vogt’s have identified this year includes Quincy Elementary PCO, Quincy Fire, Quincy High Boosters Club, Plumas Co. Veterans, Plumas Hospice, Quincy Girl Scouts, Plumas Charter School, Quincy Cub Scouts, CAN and Quincy Little League.
HEALTH CLINIC’S HOLIDAY SCHEDULE
Make a note that on Tuesday, Dec. 24, the North Fork Rural Health Clinic on the Plumas District Hospital campus will be open for walk-ins from 9 a.m. to noon. The clinic and business offices will be closed on Christmas and New Years Day.
SPECIAL TRASH PICKUPS FOR HOLIDAYS
Feather River Disposal, a Waste Management company, will be closed on Christmas and New Years Day so their employees can enjoy the holidays with their families, which will change the normal pickup days following the two holidays.
In Quincy, Greenville, Crescent Mills, Taylorsville, Lake Almanor, Chester and Feather River Canyon routes on Dec. 24 will run as usual. The Wednesday routes and the routes the rest of the week will be delayed one day.
SANTA VISITS THE BRANCH
We’re getting close to Christmas and here’s yet another opportunity for kids on the East Shore of Lake Almanor to see Santa. He’ll be at Karen’s Deli inside Spirit at the Branch at Hamilton Branch on Saturday, Dec. 21, at 6 p.m. Bring the kids and the camera while enjoying cookies and hot cocoa.
MUSICLAND OPENS IN QUINCY
Expanding beyond Musicland’s long-established Greenville location, Ken Donnell has opened a second location inside The Toy Store on Main Street in downtown Quincy. MusicLand carries instruments including guitars, mandolins, drums and flutes, as well as supplies, and they do repairs.
PAYING IT FORWARD THIS SEASON
We know of a couple of stores locally, Quincy Provisions and New To You 2 in Quincy, that welcome shoppers who are “feeling generous” the final week of this holiday season by accommodating them should they want to Pay it Forward with purchases that the storekeepers will hang on to and later share — at their discretion — with other individuals or families who come into the store. At Provisions, for example, it could be a simple cup of coffee, some tasty treat or perhaps even a gift certificate. New to You 2 owner Dorene Beam says Paying it Forward might be items such as children’s jackets, boots or toys.
Regardless of what it might be, how thoughtful and generous this truly is!
