Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, April 28, 2010 15B Quilt show and tea cancelled after 35 years Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor aknadler@plumasnews.com The Taylorsville quilters have, after 35 successful years, canceled their annual Quilt Show and Tea, which is usually conducted at the his- torical Community United Methodist Church the first Saturday of May. "We need 12 ladies who are able to be on their feet for four to five hours," one mem- ber said, and several nodded in agreement. The cancellation is a big disappointment to many, for the event has become an an- ticipated tradition. The woman decided to can- cel the event after the death of one member and a debili- tating injury to another. Their numbers have been dwindling over the last few years for similar reasons. Although they will not meet for any more Tuesday quilting sessions after the big quilt is finished, they will continue to meet every Fri- day morning at 10:30 a.m. for coffee and crafts. The big quilt this year is a Star of Grace pattern worked in shades of green and rose. The quilt is almost fin- ished, and as soon as it is, several of the ladies hope to host a special mother-daugh- ter tea for the new Daisy Scouts in Indian Valley. For more information about the Taylorsville Quil- ters, or for quilt drawing tick- ets, call 284-7670 or 284-7861. Taylorsville quilters have to cancel their annual quilt show and tea after 35 years. More members are needed to make future shows possible, though they will still give away a quilt during their Fall Festival the first Saturday of October.

THE SHELTER PLUMAS COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER 283-3673 After fostering Juliet for a month, I wrote up her bio for this column but it spoke of such a good-souled, gentle- mouthed dog that I just went to the shelter and adopted her myselfl Let's hope I can do just as well for the latest of the "hard case" at the Plumas County Animal Shel- ter, Belza. Belza is a small un- neutered border collie who was released by his owner at the end of March. This 3- year-old dog was described by the person who brought him in as "good with kids of all ages and cats and dogs, never aggressive, not a chew- er or digger, up-to-date on vaccinations and loves to pla.:; 8o what,s the prob- :, lem? Belza is very scared of everyone. The kind volun- teers and friends at the shel- ter have been sitting with him in his kennels and pet- ting and committing all kinds of acts of kindness for TOWN HALL THEATRE Presents CLASH OF THE TITANS Wed., April 28 - Fri., April 30 106 min.

Bor- der collies are sensitive ani- mals, and this one has appar- ently seen the harsher side of life somewhere and is reluc- tant to trust again. He will let you touch him, but just sits and trembles. He is not fear aggressive and has not shown any signs of hostil- ity, which should show us what a forgiving nature he has. For a dog this sensitive, life at a shelter is one of the worst places to be. Although the staff is kind and volun- teers wonderful, Belza needs the stability and warmth and love of a real home-- a needs a gentle t!ome 24-hour a day steady environ- ment- to take him totally out of his shell. Although a working stock breed, this dog should not be expected to work cows or sheep, but realistically could become a true part of a fami- ly once shown patience and care. He may never seek out the company of strangers, but could certainly do well in a home with a large yard or home with acreage. He always lights up when he sees other dogs at the shel- ter and would probably do best if he had another dog to pattern. The former owners say he is not housebroken, but that may be only a fear response as he keeps his "business" away from his bed and food at the shelter-- things housebroken dogs do in their kennels. Belza is a sweet border col- lie that deserves a good home. If you think you would be willing to work to regain the trust of this dear dog, come by the shelter at 201 Mill Creek Rd. in Quincy and meet this deserving animal. All money donated to Friends of the PC Animal Shelter go towards the bet- terment of the impounded dogs and cats. Tax-deductible donations may be sent to K- 911 Rescue, P.O. Box 182, Quincy 95971.
