Generous donation

David A. Heppler, a resident of Plumas County for the past 46 years, gives Plumas County Museum Director Scott Lawson a check for $10,000 on Aug. 21. Heppler made the donation because he “believes the museum makes wonderful contributions to the county in the form of preserving history countywide.” Heppler said that Plumas County saved him as a young man and wants to give back to the community. He also worked on the restoration of the museum’s 1878 Variel Home 20 years ago and still recalls the community effort made to fund that project. This is another way for him to help keep local history alive. Lawson accepted the donation from the Heppler family on behalf of the Plumas County Museum Association. Photo by Victoria Metcalf
