It’s the end of October already. On Tuesday, October 26, we saw the very last update for the Dixie Fire. It is finally out. On social media this week Nichoel Farris started a thread asking where Greenville people are these days. She’s in Healdsburg. Greenville people have moved as far away as Missouri, Texas, Washington, Kansas, and Nebraska. They’ve moved as near as Chico, Reno, Red Bluff, and Redding too. Many of us are still in Plumas County and anxious to get back into our town. With this in mind, here’s the latest we have on rebuilding Greenville and community events.
First and arguably most important: the FEMA deadline has been extended to November 8. That gives Plumas, Lassen, and all the counties affected by the Dixie Fire 10 more days to get in applications.
Bread for the Journey—a Plumas County non-profit organization designed to help small ventures on their feet—has small micro grants available for Plumas County residents to apply for. See their website https://www.bfjfeatherriver.org/ for more details.
Indian Valley’s own Tyler Pew, Moorea Stout, and Sue Weber were in Greensburg, Kansas this week on a fact finding mission about sustainable recovery from natural disaster, (Greensburg was hit by a tornado). We will have more on their mission to come when they return.
Indian Valley United is hosting its monthly gathering at 4322 Main Street in Taylorsville at 5 p.m. today, Oct. 28. There are to be a number of announcements particularly about food services in Indian Valley that will be made tonight. Indian Head Properties also has announcements to make at the gathering.
“Come join us for homecooked food, social gathering and presentations. Potluck dinner starts at 5 p.m. Presentations start around 6 p.m. Our presenters this month are Rose Buzzetta with an update on the Board of Supervisors recent and upcoming decisions, and Laurel who will be talking about the healing tool she developed called the Labyrinth. Laurel is a Camp Fire survivor,” said organizers on their facebook page. Labyrinths are becoming a common meditation tool for healing.
The annual Harvest Festival at Lake Almanor Community Church will be held October 31 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. This is a free family event. “There’s fun and games for all and an affordable meal is served. A great place to connect our communities, said organizers.
This Halloween is all about Taylorsville.
Lemongrass Boii Street Food is making and distributing tacos on Saturday, October 30 at the Taylorsville Tavern Halloween party. There will also be donations distributed to those who lost their homes in the Dixie Fire. For more information, contact the Taylorsville Tavern.
Trunk or Treat event is taking place in downtown Taylorsville on Halloween at 5 p.m.
The annual Greenville Elementary School Halloween Carnival is happening at Taylorsville elementary School from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Halloween. This event is sponsored by the Indian Valley Elementary Parents Club.
It’s not a trick. If you have an announcement pertaining to Greenville’s recovery, please send us your information by Friday of each week to [email protected]. Readers who want to alert us to something happening are welcomed to tag us in social media as well.
