Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 31, 2010 7Jlli Interest grows in time banking Community Connections has doubled its membership since July 1, by adding 69 new members and sponsors. There are now more than 100 individual members and 18 local business sponsors. To those who are not already familiar with this unique community-building service, now is the time to jump on board. Community Connections is a countywide service of Plumas Rural Services with the mission to connect people, strengthen families and build communities. Community members are "exchanging a wide variety of services with each other in exchange for time credits. One hour of service equals one time credit -- all services are equal. Community Connections expects to achieve 2,000 hours of service in Plumas County by the end of June. While the news headlines overflow with negativity and stories of economic failure, Plumas County residents now have an option for getting involved and doing something very positive in their community. One of the core values of Community Connections is the belief that every human being has value and can contribute something that will make a difference to someone. That is evident in the list of more than 220 different services offered through the membership. Everything in- cluding arts/crafts, business services, babysitting, com- puter assistance, handyman services, household manage- ment, pet care, transporta- tion, tutoring and yard care is available by the exchange of time credits. When agencies, businesses and service organizations partner together and provide opportunities for community members to get involved and make a difference, great things happen. People feel like they are doing what they can to help out and in return they can get their needs met because their volunteer efforts are rewarded with time credits. Individual memberships are $20 to join, with a $5 annual renewal fee. Scholar- ships are available. Sponsorships are $100 annually and provide busi- nesses and service organiza- tions access to more than 100 volunteers to assist with activities and events. Community Connections members will host the Quincy Community Supper Wednesday, April 7. Anyone who is interested in becoming a member can take advantage of a special 2-for-1 promotion offered at the supper. "Don't let economic worries and crazy-busy lifestyles keep you from experiencing the joy of being connected, help- ing others, and working to- gether," said Leslie Wall, coor- dinator of the program. Now is the time for everyone to share their skills, knowledge and special interests to sup- port their community by join- ing Community Connections. To get more information contact Wall at 283-3611, ext. 18, or visit the website at plumas- services/ community connections.

In addition, the recreation district is seeking individu- als interested in umpiring for the league. Training will be provided.
