Business Scene for the week of 9/18/19

Wedding party and venue
Mike and Denise Deissinger are only the third family to own the Kinship Ranch near Cromberg. Although it is still a working ranch, they have transformed this 100-plus acre property and its 140-year-old farmhouse and barns to a wedding venue with a number of wedding ceremony sites on the property to choose from as well as other gatherings that include reunions and gatherings for any size group. Leaving their careers in Nevada to help them with this huge endeavor is their son Kevin and his wife Valerie. Also pictured is ranch hand Mike Cook. Photo submitted.


The Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Town Talk on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 9 a.m., at the Coffee Station in old town Chester to discuss the opportunities for the creation of a Town Plaza. Chamber President Susan Bryner encourages residents to come share thoughts, ideas and explore the possibilities of the kind of activities a Main Street plaza could provide year-round. Some initial ideas include a portable ice rink, climbing walls and events like farmers’ markets. For more information give the Chamber a call at  258-2426.

Alicia says she is excited to make this career change and to work for Lori and Curtis, her prior experience has been in the food industry.

The Bargain Boutique Fine Thrift and Gifts on Main Street in downtown Quincy is having a special sale to make room for new arrivals. The store’s dedicated and hardworking volunteers are having a $5 bag sale on Thursday, Sept. 26 through Saturday, Sept. 28. Grab a bag from the store, select the times you wish to buy from selected racks and stuff your bag — it’s that easy! Of course, all proceeds from this exceptionally trendy well-stocked treasure trove benefit the Plumas District Hospital through its Foundation.


Cheryl and Bob Reinitz tell us their famed Quincy store, Forest Stationers, will be closed beginning Wednesday, Sept. 25, until Monday, Sept. 30, so the couple can attend a family wedding. By the way, don’t let the name fool you, this Main Street store is truly a Main Street-style store that is incredibly well stocked with a variety of unique gifts perfect for any occasion and yes, office supplies that run the gamut from paper clips to office furniture.


The 27th annual Westwood Chili Cook-Off is this Saturday, Sept. 21. Sponsored by the Chimney Fund, Inc., this fun-filled family event begins at noon at the Iron Horse Saloon with live music, kids games, face painting, a prize drawing, barbecue, blind salsa judging and, of course, chili samples from some of the best cooks in the region. For those interested in competing contact coordinator Mary Gow at 339-6878.


We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the newly installed pavement in front of Connie’s Place on Highway 70 just west of Portola. We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention that Connie Kunsman has owned and operated the store for 44 years. It’s a high end and very unique secondhand store packed with antiques, furniture, household items, collectibles, books and jewelry with new items arriving on a regular basis.

That is also the same location as Kunsman Fence, which has also been serving Plumas, Lassen, Nevada and Sierra counties for 44 years. They sell and install virtually every type of residential, commercial and industrial fencing product including chain link, privacy, ornamental iron, split rail along with ADA compliant hand and guard rails, gates and so much more. Tom Burnett will quickly tell you that no job is too big or too small for his crew!
