Indian Valley Chamber seeks board members, volunteers

California fall color will be amazing this season. This wonderful rain will give the moisture needed to provoke beautiful autumnal hues. And in Indian Valley the rich oranges and vibrant yellows will not disappoint. Now, when exactly does this happen?

Well that’s hard to say. But the month of October and into the beginning of November should be wonderful. And what a wonderful time to take a drive from wherever you are to enjoy in natures wonders and the beauty of our valley.

We are grateful to all the fire crews, emergency responders and personnel that worked diligently in getting the Walker fire under control. As I type, the fire is now over 90 percent contained.

The Chamber board welcomed a new board member at our last meeting: Suzette Reed, of Taylorsville. Suzette has for many years been involved in the community in one way or another and now has offered her time to be a board member of the Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce. Thank you Suzy!


Remember everyone, the meetings, held every 3rd Monday of the month, are open to the public. We welcome everyone in with their concerns and interests. We look for new energy to help with Indian Valley events that happen now and look forward to possible new events that could happen here with your help. We are still looking for a couple more volunteers to be board members by the end of the year and another helper or two for the office on Main St. Our next meeting is Oct. 21, 6 p.m. at 408 Main St. in Greenville.

This Saturday, Sept. 28, will be the “Meet at the Graveyard” event hosted by the Greenville Cy Hall Memorial Museum. I have participated in a few of these and they are always very informative and fascinating.

This year the event focuses on the Hamblin family history. Through the decades, travel in Plumas County was not always so easy and the Hamblin family had quite a part in making sure the community kept moving. From the buggy to the model A, the Hamblin Family was there to assist.

Buy your tickets today. The event begins at 5 p.m. in the cemetery on Hideaway Road in Greenville. Then a Silent Auction and dinner at the Masonic Hall on Main St in Greenville will follow. Tickets are available at the museum, which is open Friday through Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., and from museum board members. For more information call 284-6473.


Then that same night … at the same time … St. Anthony’s Catholic Church is having their 43rd Annual Italian Dinner. I guess we’ll all have to flip a coin to see which event we go to, because this dinner is something not to miss either.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the social hall of the church on Jesse St. in Greenville, diners can enjoy homemade marinara, pastas, salad, bread and desserts. Take out is available. Tickets will be available at the door or from church members.

Happy fall everyone! It’s a wonderful time to be in our beautiful mountains.
