CHESTER CHAMBER CHANGES
There is a lot going on with the Chester Lake Almanor Chamber of Commerce these days. The building is sporting a new look with its new color scheme and the chamber's new logo. Board president Jay Sabelman also tells us Kim James will take over as chamber manager in August.
DISH NETWORK RETAILER
Ian Upton, who owns Universal Electric serving Chester and Lake Almanor, is now a local Dish Network satellite retailer, installer and service provider. Ian has 10 years as a licensed commercial and residential electrician and has lived in Plumas County for the last four years.
NEW BARBER JOINS TEAM
Jared Pilgram has joined the others taking care of your hair care needs at Country Style Hair Salon in Greenville. Owner Margie Meeker said that Jared is a barber who is well known in the Quincy area.
STOCKING THE SHELVES FROM DENVER
Becky Weatherson and Sharon Geney were in Denver recently buying new items at a huge gift show for their Chester store, Good Vibrations. Some of the new and unique merchandise hitting their shelves includes Tibetan singing bowls, Raku wishing pots, mini Zen gardens, children's books, wind chimes and crystal and mineral pendants.
THIRTY-NINE YEARS AND COUNTING
Located in Prattville at Lake Almanor, Carol's Café & West Shore Deli is celebrating its 39th season. One of the things that make this such a local favorite and rather unique is that you can reach the restaurant by dock or bike (they are just off the West Shore bike trail), and of course by vehicle. Owner Carol Franchetti is proud that Carol's Café is the longest running restaurant with the same owner in the area. She attributes its longevity and her success to continually enhancing her menu, but always keeping “comfort food with a twist.” You can go to plumasnews.com to see her menu by clicking on the Dining Guide.
