Family fun at the annual Plumas County Picnic

Food, music, treats and more greeted those who attended the June 10 Plumas County Picnic. Made possible by the PCSF Foundation, a free lunch was served.Quincy Soroptimist members were serving hamburgers, hotdogs, potato salad, watermelon, chips and lemonade. There was also ice cream and cotton candy for those with a sweet tooth.

“We bought food for about 500 people,” Fair Manager John Steffanic said, “and we ended up serving about 140.” Despite the numbers, Steffanic said he was happy with the turnout and the atmosphere. “The vibe was absolutely what we wanted,” he said.

As for those who asked why it was on a different weekend than the car show, which has become tradition for the past several years, Steffanic said that there were issues when trying to run both events simultaneously so the picnic was moved to the following weekend. However, he said he didn’t think it affected attendance, because it was about the same for both events as it has been in the past.

This year’s event included Quircus performances and an obstacle course run by the rec department.

  • Such a great event and volunteer effort! I sure hope there is a plan for the extra food and it doesn’t go to waste. Please let the community know if we can help distribute it!

  • The unnamed band in the photo is Quincy’s own Rummy, playing rock, blues and Country from the 1950’s to present. Catch them live again at this years Plumas County Fair

  • Rummy put on an excellent show for the community picnic! So lucky to have a great band like Rummy right here in Quincy!
