This work will only enhance the Highway 70 rehabilitation pro- ject that starts next year. The work is imminent. Given the financial state of PG&E, we had a brief scare that the Lawrence Street elec- trical undergrounding project would not be completed. We are now told that the project will be finished using funds committed prior to bankrupt- cy. This is truly a project that will enhance the look of Quin- cy as you head west through town. Work is expected to be completed by the end of this summer. You may have heard of the passing of Johnny Smith. Johnny owned and operated Eagle Auto Repair in Quincy, and was a strong supporter of the Quincy Chamber of Com- merce. Our sympathies go to Sunny Smith (chamber office manager) as she deals with this life change. Our local chamber has un- dergone a transformation over the past three years with many successes behind us, a 40 per- cent increase in membership and a renewed focus on com- The Quincy Chamber of Commerce has been working hard with the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds on plan- ning and organizing the up- coming State High School Rodeo finals. In many ways, it is a formi- dable task to put all of the pieces together for this event, which is returning to the fair- grounds for the first time in over 10 years. Over 300 contestants from across California compete in a variety of rodeo events over a week-long period starting Monday, June 18. The contes- tants (and parents) that reach this level of competition have significant investments in ani- mals, tack and equipment, not to mention the expense (to the parents) of getting here and staying here for a week. We think that they'll spend some money in town. The chamber hopes that the event will prove to be a good investment for our businesses. For $50, we have large, prominent sponsorship ban- ners available that merchants can use to hang in stores to identify a sponsor of the event, to draw in the families that shop in town. Contact the chamber to get yours. We will have lots of recognition after the event to businesses (Horton Tire Cen- Rodeo finals son team Photo by Cad Catron Dotal tmtgac and his son, Rommld (not pictured), have opened lake Alman Sports and Spirits on the east nitofe of Lake Almmm~.
