The deadline is fast approaching for the 2015 edition of the Plumas Lassen Connection telephone directory, the only locally produced — and most cost-effective — phone book that covers all of Plumas and Lassen counties and parts of Sierra County. For 20 years we have been providing the region with the most complete and comprehensive listing of residential and business listings in an easy-to-read and easy-to-use format. We’ll even include cellphone numbers for those who choose to list them — all you have to do is provide it to us!

Some 42,000 phone books are hand-delivered to homes and businesses throughout the local area, primarily by local school and youth groups. The delivery has become a major fundraiser for them. Since that very first edition in 1995, these groups have earned more than $170,000 delivering the Plumas Lassen Connection. So when you remember, thank the advertisers in yellow pages because a big chunk of advertising revenue in this book goes right back to our local youth!
