Nostalgia for days past and underlying excitement for what the future might bring marked the emotional graduation of the Chester High School Class of 2013.
The obvious bond the 34 graduates have formed over the years was evidenced with the fact that 20 of them had traveled down the same memory lane from kindergarten through grade 12. “The rest we have adopted,” a graduate said.
“The world is just the canvas for our imagination,” said Plumas Charter School graduating senior Sky Van Zandt. She went on to tell her fellow classmates at the June 7 commencement that each person has control over the colors and designs they choose to put on their own canvas.
Van Zandt is one of the Greenville charter school students who merged into Indian Valley Academy at the beginning of the school year.
Sue Weber, director of IVA, told the audience of about 200 that it wasn’t easy for those students to suddenly have their world turned upside after the partnership between IVA and Greenville High School changed the nature of the charter school’s secondary program for Greenville students.
The Plumas National Forest is soliciting feedback on its current motorized travel management effort (Subpart A) involving national forest system roads that may no longer be needed and/or are posing a risk to a natural or cultural resource.
“The chief of the Forest Service has directed all national forests and grasslands to identify a road system that provides safe and efficient access for recreation and resource management, while protecting our country’s natural and cultural resources,” said Earl Ford, Plumas National Forest supervisor.
The first farmers market of the season will take place Thursday, June 20, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the lawn at Church and Main streets in Quincy.
This is the market’s 14th year of providing fresh produce, delicious hot food, local arts and crafts and high-quality live music. Thursday’s entertainment will be the ever-popular Fish Tacos. A complete lineup is available on the Quincy Certified Farmers’ Market website: quincyfarmersmarket.org.
Life is tough enough for people who come into the world with all of their faculties intact, but for those with disabilities, life is even tougher.
The ALIVE program, one of Plumas Rural Services’ many offerings, helps people with developmental disabilities live productive and enriching lives.
