Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010 5A Community pulls together to save preschool In December 2009, the board of directors of the nonprofit Graeagle Preschool met for its monthly meeting. The treasurer reported the school had just enough fund- ing to keep the doors open through January. Enrollment was low, and the school&apos;s fundraisers just could not compensate for the lack of funds. The board adjourned the meeting with the motion to close the school, possibly in February. However, as board mem- bers reached out to the com- munity for help, they re- ceived a response that exceed- ed all hopes and expectations. A1 Cleary, owner of Plumas Pines Goff Resort, historical- ly has been a huge supporter of the Graeagle Preschool. Once again, he stepped up to the "tee" and donated an an- nual family goff membership, valued at $750, to the preschool. In turn, the preschool be- gan selling tickets to enter a drawing for this membership. On top of those sales, Cleary announced he would donate extra funds for the cause. In addition, the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Com- merce and the Graeagle Mer- chants Association supported the school's plea for dona- tions and assistance by e- mailing the school's request for help to their members. Ul- timately, their members re- sponded with donations and sponsorships to keep the school going. Board members also decid- ed to host the school's first snowmobile poker run. The event could not have taken place without the sup- port of the Plumas National Forest, Ed Dillard and Dustin Langston from the Beck- wourth Fire Department, the Plumas County Sheriff's Of- rice, and Bob Marshall and Milch Cart from Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative. Jeanie of J&J's Grizzly Store was a gracious host at the check-in and drawing lo- cation; organizers could not have picked a more perfect place. Plumas Sanitation and Neighborhood Septic and Drain provided the re- strooms, and Wood's Fire & Emergency Service posted the information on its marquee in Portola. Businesses that donated the prize money for the win- ning hands include BajaEn- and Skyline Construction. Hannah Collier, first-place winner, donated her win- nings back to the preschool. Because of her generosity, Ba- donated another full-day fishing char- ter in Cabo San Lucas to Col- lier and her family. Area businesses also do- nated items for the drawing: Chalet View Lodge, The Grille at Chalet View Lodge, The Spa at Chalet View Lodge, Plumas Pines and Longboards Bar & Grill, Lake Davis Resort, Sleepy Pines Motel, Explore! Sierra Touring Company, DuPont Power Tools, J's Feather Riv- er Rental, Jimmie's Road- house 70, Lena's Cantina, Portola Pizza Factory, Mt. Tomba Inn, Gumba's, The Iron Door, Cheese Burger Restaurants and Feather River Park Resort. Board members said they were grateful to everyone who bought tickets for the goff drawing, donated money and attended the event. The school will survive another winter, having met'one-third of its annual fundraising goal. Without continued support for Graeagle Preschool from those who understand the benefits of the lifelong memo- ries, lessons and experiences made at the school, it would not be here today.
