For information: County Board of Dear Quincy and East Quincy Sewer Customers, If you receive an Income Survey in the mail, please complete and return it. Why should you help ? As you may know, both Districts have a common goal - to explore wastewater treatment options for American Valley. Investigating possible alternatives can be expensive. Both Districts want to keep any costs as low as possible in order to minimize any potential financial impact on its customers. An income survey can help determine eligibility for grants or low-interest loans. No decisions have been made, but we need your cooperation to help us move forward. All information collected will be strictly confidential and individual survey results will NOT be available to either district. A Public Meeting has been scheduled to provide further information and answer questions, Place: Plumas Date: July 7, 2014 Time: 6:30 PM County Library Conference Room We thank you in advance for your cooperation. Sincerely, Quincy Community Services District Board of Directors East Quincy Services District Board of Directors ThankYou Quincy - Our Village Our son, Daniel Haygood, graduated from Quincy High School on June 13, 2014 and we want to thank the Village of Qdincy that helped us raise him! Thank you Ralph Wilburn, who paid Danny 25 cents a push up to prove to him he "could". Thank you Mr. Williams, for treating him fairly and suspending him when he got into a "little altercation" while defending a kid who was being bullied. You explained to him that while his intentions were good and right, the outcome was what had to be considered and that the rules had to be applied to all equally and fairly. Thank you Katy Dyrr, who promoted Danny from Snow Leopards to Blizzard Wizards so he could race his first year. You taught him that if he channeled his vast amount of energy, he would be successful! Thank you Dr. Sue Segura, for acknowledging the exceptional as well as the missteps. You taught him that every day is a new day and that opportunities to achieve are abundant. And to the School Board Members -- you taught him to speak up and count! Thank you Coach Hanna -- you believed in Danny and his many talents on and off the field, teaching him that you gain wisdom on the bench and makes your time on the field that much better! Thank you Mrs. Smith, Lindsey, and Terri Gallagher for casting him in just the right roles every time and for teaching him that being a lead is every bit as important as being in the general cast. Thank you Edie, Earl, & Jeff, for reading his script and telling him "I think you got something here Danny". Thank you Josh Hanna and Justin Lusk for being the consummate role models to Danny, teaching him the golden rule -- "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Thank you Brian Wood, for being his constant and loyal support system, by sharing your passion for literature and writing -- together you proved that a "football player can write, direct and produce a play!" Thank you Marcy DeMartile and Steve Tolen, who taught Danny that service and giving feels so much better than receiving. Thank you Claire and the whole Kepple family for feeding and sheltering Danny during the wee hours -- teaching him that he can be loved by many parents and have many more siblings than just his own and that families and homes are safe and nurturing. Thank you Mike -- aka Dad, for telling AND showing Danny that integrity is really "all you have. " So many more thank yous to give, but to summarize, Thank You Quincy for helping us raise our son -- you are a wonderful village and we know that even though there is a big wide world out there he wants to explore, Daniel Haygood will be back. After all - there's no place like home!
