12A Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018 Indian Valley Record Word got around that 5-Foot Farm's strawberry crop was back on and in peak ripeness July 31 in west Quincy. Photos by Roni Java P Red, ripe strawberries are one of summer's favorite harvests on local farms in the Lost Sierra. Comparing berry hauls at the farm were 7, and his little brother Joshua, 5. Quincy kids Ezekiel Shafer on the left, 7, Samuel Ward, When 5-Foot Farm on Highway 70 announced that their ripe, red strawberries were back on for the picking, Carol Sheller of Quincy and plenty of other folks braved the heat for handfuls of the delicious summer treats The Quincy Chamber of Commerce is pleased to sponsor the 73rd annual Plumas-Sierra County Fair Parade on Saturday, Aug. 11. The parade starts at 10 a.m. sharp and will run its usual route from Lindan Avenue by Safeway, west on Main Street to the courthouse. Prior to the parade and part of the tradition, the Quincy Volunteer Fire Department will have its annual Pancake Breakfast from 7 a.m to 10 a.m. at the fire station on Lawrence Street. Parade entries this year include some old favorites mixed in with some fun new ones. Should be quite the show! Driving the grand marshal again this year is Chez Pence. He's driven his vehicle in the parade for over a decade and isn't about to now! The grand marshal this year, in conjunction with the fair's "Welcome to the Neighborhood" theme, is friendly neighbor Nikki Thomas. Thomas has been with the Quincy DMV office for the past five years, having first started out at the Ukiah DMV. Although Thomas isn't a resident here, she says one of the things she loves the most about our area is our hospitality and welcoming her to our neighborhood! In keeping with the "Welcome to the Neighborhood" theme, the parade will have two very special guests riding in the grand marshal's car. We'll give you a hint: look for cardigan sweaters, ties, and one of them is short. Very short. After the parade is over, be sure to stick around for a special showing of "Won't You Be My Neighbor?," the documentary that takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor, Mr. Rogers. The Town Hall Theatre will have a special showing at 11:30 a.m. with a discounted matinee price of $6 per person. What better way to beat the heat before heading down to the fairgrounds for an evening of amusement, rides and displays with your friends and family. The ,Quincy Chamber of Commerce is proud to host some of these beloved events. unity A lack of funding is rendering the future uncertain for Community Connections. The popular program, in which members exchange services, is in danger of ceasing to exist unless something is done. Member Janet Crain organized a meeting to be held this Sunday, Aug. 12, at 6 p.m. Did you know that anyone can join the Chamber of Commerce? It's true --- the chamber offers memberships to businesses and individuals alike. Join today online at qumcychamber.com or call 394-0541 and stay up to date in the Quincy library meeting room. "We have members from across the county and we need to talk about the future of Community Connections," she said. She described herself as someone who has "been pretty active on both sides of the on everything happening around town. To donate instead to help with future expenses and events, make a check payable to the Quincy Chamber of Commerce and mail to PO Box 215, Quincy, CA 95971. services," and she and other members want to do what they can to maintain the program, even if it becomes an all-volunteer effort. Community Connections had operated under the auspices of Plumas Rural Services with funding from the county's Behavioral Health Department. m Books bnnch Boxes Rulers Notebooks Crayons Colored Pencils Paper -NOI ROW I L I I TODONA - HOURS: Mon-Fd 8:30-5:,30, Salurday 10-5 slO0 slO0 slO0 slO0 slO0 s50 s50 s50 sSO s25 /i,~ ~ OFF OFF OFF OFF OFF OFF OFF OFF OFF OFF
