Plumas Bank is celebrating the holidays with the community by hosting holiday mixers at their Chester office Thursday, Dec. 4 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and at the Portola office Wednesday, Dec. 10 from 5:30-7 p.m. If your social calendar is already booked you can enjoy refreshments when you do your everyday banking at the Greenville or Quincy branches as part of our Customer Appreciation Days, Monday-Wednesday, Dec. 15_17.
District 3 Supervisor Sherrie Thrall shared an interesting item she read elsewhere with us touting the impact shopping at home has on our local economy.
Consider this challenge: If each of our newspaper readers were to spent just $100 each shopping at home this holiday season, it would pump over $1.8 million into the Plumas County economy (that’s based on a conservative average of just two readers per newspaper).
Seriously, how hard would it be to spend an extra hundred bucks at home? It could be a couple of gifts from your favorite stores or perhaps some gift certificates from the beauty salon, massage studio or service provider. Heck, you might even be waffling about having your car serviced before making that holiday drive to out-of-area friends or relatives. If you did, it would contribute to this effort as well. You get the idea, just look around, you’re sure to find something for someone special — even if that someone special is you!
Of course, the alternative: Don’t do anything and you’ll be doing your part to help feed the recession.

The annual tradition continues at the Way Station in Greenville. Gould Fickardt and Bev Hardesty and friends will again prepare and serve a traditional (and complimentary) Thanksgiving meal on Nov. 27, from 2-5 p.m. It’s simply their way of saying thanks to their customers and sharing the true meaning of Thanksgiving with their “extended family,” their friends and neighbors. “If you can’t be with your family on Thanksgiving, come be with ours,” they said.
