We would like to welcome our newest Chamber members: Business Member Pathfinder Properties and Individual Members Jim Battagin and Bev Thomas. You too can join the Chamber and help support your community — all for less than $5 per month for an individual membership. We sponsor four large events in the community each year — Safe Trick-or-Treat, Sparkle, Groundhog Fever Festival and the Plumas-Sierra County Fair Parade.
To put large events together it takes a whole lot of time, effort and teamwork, so every membership counts. By joining the Chamber you will have front-line knowledge of what we’re working on to keep our community thriving — whether it’s a large event or advertising our area, you’ll know first-hand. Becoming a member is easy — just give us a call at (530) 394-0541 or join online at HYPERLINK “http://www.quincychamber.com”quincychamber.com.
In case you missed the fantastic pictures in this paper last week, our joint member-only Chamber mixer at Greenhorn Ranch was so much fun. Thanks to the cooperation and collaboration of Greenhorn Ranch, the Quincy Chamber of Commerce and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce in Blairsden, all the folks that attended got to enjoy a bountiful feast of yummy delights, dancing, swimming, fishing, volleyball, pool and just overall having a wonderful time. In the meantime, we look forward to expanding our networking with the folks from Lost Sierra Chamber to help boost tourism to the Quincy area and Plumas County.
Speaking of what we do, Safe Trick-or-Treat is coming up Oct. 31 from 3 – 5:30 p.m. in downtown Quincy. Join the fun in all your costumed glory … or if you would prefer, we need adult volunteers to help with crosswalk safety. The work is easy and rewarding — just 2.5 hours of one day to ensure our kids enjoy this event safely. If you’re interested please give us a call so we can add your name to the list.
Other Chamber member events include the upcoming Block Party in Grover Alley on Sept. 20; be sure to check out The Knook for a fabulous dinner. Speaking of fun be sure to stop by Quintopia Brewing Co. on Friday, Sept. 20, for live music featuring Ragged Coyote and sample their new “Swoon Lite.” On Saturday, Sept. 21, you’ll want to attend the first Plumas Pride Festival in downtown Quincy hosted by the Gay-Straight Alliance, followed by a party you won’t want to miss — the Plumas Pride Drag Show at Main Street Sports Bar. Also happening on Sept. 21 is the 10th Annual Grave Occasion; the premier benefit of our own Plumas County Museum. On Sept. 27, join us at West End Theatre for their production, “On Golden Pond,” playing again on Sept. 28 and 29 and Oct. 3, 4, 5 and 6. On Oct. 9 Quintopia Brewing Co. is partnering with Feather River Chapter (#905) of Trout Unlimited to bring us the “2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour.” All proceeds will benefit Trout Unlimited and support its efforts and activities, including the Trout in the Classroom program, Fly-tying/Casting Instruction, the Graeagle Mill Pond Derby and strategic fisheries restoration in the Upper Feather River Basin. Also coming soon — the highly anticipated annual Mountain Harvest Beer Festival hosted by Plumas Arts on Saturday, Oct. 12.
