16A Wednesday, May 2, 2012 Star Follies-supports the arts A primary mission of the Quincy Star Follies is to enrich the lives of local youth through exposure to the arts, exercise and civic engage- ment: The Star Follies is among the newer additions to the performing arts programs in Plumas County and is certainly in great company. The Follies bene- fits from the skilled and experienced members of dramaworks, the Feather River College Community Theater Program and the QuinCy High School drama program, among many others. "There is a lot of talent in our community and' we see ourselves as just one more outlet for creative expres- sion," said Lisa Kelly of the Follies organizing com- mittee. Kelly is also on the fundraising committee of the Feather River College Foundation and is grateful for the participation of FRC students who have some "outstanding moves on stage in addition to those on the field." The wealth of art programs and organizations in the county has been a major attractant and ultimately a retention aspect for many families in their decision to make Plumas County their home. Families need the arts. These opportunities provide a wonderful chance for chil- dren to freely express them- selves creatively and to engage themselves as respon- sible citizens. Even very young children relish the. chance to take part in sup-. porting their community. Children contribute to the de- sign of their costumes, help with choreography and assist in organizing their parents in getting to and from rehearsals. This year, the Follies has benefited from the support of the Tobacco Use Prevention Education grant. The TUPE program provides funding from Proposition 99 tobacco tax dollars for tobacco prevention education. In order for school districts to receive funding, they must submit a competitive grant to the California State Depart- ment of Education: The funds are used to deliver a compre- hensive tobacco prevention program, which includes tobacco-specific student in- struction and supplemental reinforcement activities. Though strategies and activities can be designed locally, they must be based on research on effective practices to prevent the initiation of tobacco use and reduce tobacco product consumption among youth already using. The activities, such as those that are in- cluded in children's re- hearsals, have been shown to be highly effective and the Follies committee is grateful to have the support of the TUPE funds and its coordinator, Bruce Mulligan. The Follies cast is com- posed of 120 community members and in many cases revolves entire families: moms and dads, grandpar- ents, children, siblings and grandchildren performing side by side, learning songs, studying dance moves and shuttling to and from re- hearsals. While the Quincy Star Follies was created to add another uniqu.e dimen- sion to the performing arts in Plumas County, the outcome has been an enhanced appre- ciation and understanding of the performing arts for the children, while bringing families together in a mean- ingful and entertaining way. The Follies show will be held May 4 and 5 at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair- grounds. For information, visit or call Lisa Kelly at (775) 232-9536. Tickets are avail- able at Bank of America, Carey Candy Co., The Bike Shop, Feather River Fitness, Traci's Sweet Surprises, The Drttnk Brush and Pangaea. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for kids under 13. Feather River Bulletin Players wantec The Central Plumas Recre- ation and Park District's adult softball leagues are scheduled to Commence Monday, May 7. Teams are currently being formed during the pre-season and practice Period. All games will be played on weekday evenings at either Gansner Park or the ball fields at Feather River College. The adult softball league is divided into four divisions: men's division, two co-ed divisions (an upper and a lower) and one women's division. "We are actively searching for someone to put together another women's team to help round out that division," said park district sports and recreation coordinator Jeren Seibel. "Adult softball is a great way to spend time with friends, family and co- workers in an environment that promotes physical and social well-being. We have some pricing incentives available for anyone who starts a new women's team this year." In addition, the recreation district is seeking individuals interested in umpiring for the league. Training will be provided. "Being an umpire over the summer is a great way to get connected with the community, make some money and have fun," said Seibel. Anyone interested in becoming an umpire is encouraged to contact the Recreation and Park District. New players that would like to get connected with a team or individuals in- terested in forming a new team are invited to contact the district at 283-3278 or 34 Fairground Road in Quincy. Returning players for all divisions are encour- aged to sign up promptly through their team manager.
