Eatery opens in Chester
ANNUAL SOROPTIMIST FUNDRAISER
Continuing a decades-long tradition, the Soroptimist International Club is again selling See’s Candy for the upcoming holidays as a treat for your guests or gift for your friends and or clients. It’s a fundraiser benefiting Quincy and Portola high schools. In Quincy, you can buy See’s Candy at Great Northern Hair Company on Highway 70 in East Quincy and at the Plumas Bank branch in Portola.
HERE’S ANOTHER ‘NUTTY’ FUNDRAISER
Some might think they’re nuts, but the Quincy Soroptimist Club has taken over another fundraiser that has been handled for years by the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. Orders are now being accepted at Great Northern Hair Co. in East Quincy and through any member of Soroptimist for fresh nuts — again, it time for holiday enjoyment or gift giving. You can purchase these assorted fresh nuts in 1-pound pre-made packages or create your own customer order. The Soroptimist group also plans to have packaged nuts available at the upcoming local craft fairs and at the Quincy Sparkle on Friday, Dec. 1.
FUNDRAISER FOR WOMEN’S SOFTBALL
On Saturday, Nov. 18, from noon to 3 p.m., at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds Tulsa Scott Pavilion, there is a major fundraiser and meet-and-greet for the Feather River College women’s softball team. The price of a ticket includes a taco dinner and beverage provided by Krissy Bauer’s The Knook. There will also be prize giveaways and a silent auction. Tickets are on sale at The Knook and must be purchased before Wednesday, Nov. 15. For more information, call Krissy at 927-7136.
THROUGH THE END OF DECEMBER
Driving through downtown Quincy you might have noticed the retail location on the corner of Main and Bradley has taken a new life and reopened. This Pop-Up business, now in its third year, is called Antiques and Artisans and features an amazing collection of antiques and gift items made by local artists. Those in this co-op have lots more space in this new prime retail location. Note to holiday shoppers: Make sure to put a stop here on your list!
