Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 5, 2014 5A el mun arc Mystery Brown Enactus Representative Special to Feather Publishing Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. How does this matter to us in Plumas County? It matters because it's likely that all our lives have been touched by someone who required a blood transfusion. Transfusions save lives. What a community needs to maintain a healthy supply of blood is enough citizens willing to commit an hour of their time to donating blood. Donate for someone who cannot, or in memory of a loved one. Give yourself the chance to help someone, even someone you may not know, through the simple process of donating blood. Quincy residents have the opportunity to be a "blood hero" at our next community drive, which will be held Tuesday, March 11, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located at the corner of Bucks Lake Road and Bellamy Lane. The drive will run from noon until 6 p.m., and for your ease and convenience, advance scheduling of your appointment is possible by going online to (use'the sponsor code "Quincy").

That's when inspiration struck and he decided to produce a concert, "Music is the Medicine," for his senior project. Henry, a singer/songwriter and producer, performed a dozen original tunes under his stage name, Mikey FreSh. The show took place Feb. 21 at Quincy High and Henry is donating the proceeds to the American Cancer Society. Henry's "nana" has stage 3 adenocarcinoma. When she saw a picture of Henry and his siblings wearing special T-shirts reading "My Nana Is My Hero," she said, "I cried when I saw the picture of the three kids with their special T-shirts. Wow! Please tell him thank you for all of his hard work." More than 100 audience members attended the concert the night of Friday, Feb. 21, and Henry's vision became a reality. Terri Redkey, QHS faculty and senior project advisor said, "I was very impressed when I heard Jay singing. However, I was even more impressed when I learned he also wrote all of his own music."
