Indian Valley residents are invited to “come in from the cold” Jan. 11, in order to raise money for the local volunteer fire department. Photo submitted
The cancellation of this year’s Indian Valley Firemen’s Ball caused the local volunteer firemen and the Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce to step up and sponsor a new event called “Come in From the Cold.”
In November Indian Valley Fire and Rescue Chief Jim Hamblin announced that the fire department lost several of its active event organizers and because of this, its biggest fundraiser of the year would be taking a hiatus.
To help ensure the fire department has a successful year despite the cancellation, the replacement dinner and dance has been scheduled for Jan. 11 at 5:30 p.m. in the Greenville Masonic Hall.

There is a major transition underway at the local California Highway Patrol office. Four officers recently retired, one transferred out and six new people are moving in.

Quincy Area Commander Lt. Joe Edwards said veteran officers are lining up to transfer to the local post.
Rather than listing the town of Seneca for sale on eBay as they originally planned, the owners decided to hold a lawyer’s auction, which will be conducted via email, snail mail and phone. Bidding opened up Dec. 24 and will close Feb. 15; however, if bidding seems to have reached a cap, the owners will chose a winner early.
Plumas County has joined other counties throughout the United States in implementing an emergency alert system designed to notify residents of a disaster.
