Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, June 27, 2012 11A .- anish C bridge The Spanish Creek Bridge Replacement Project is near completion, as evidenced by its opening to two-way uncontrolled traffic Monday evening, June 25, nearly two years after the ceremonial ground breaking took place July 7, 2010. Caltrans officials are planning a ribbon cutting ceremony for the $22 million project July 16 at 11 a.m. Parking will be limited, so they encourage carpooling. Photo by Mike Taborski Pastor Donna Wood has ar- rived in Quincy to minister at the Methodist Church begin- ning July 1. She replaces in- terim Pastor Ray Dowdy, who has retired. Wood is no stranger to small-town ministry. She grew up in a small west Texas town and received her first church appointment to Greenville in the 1990s. She is returning to the mountains after serving churches in Alameda, Tracy and San Francisco. "Our Methodist roots have instilled m me a great love for God and a heart for evangelism and mission after the model of Jesus," said Wood. "I have a passion for all things spiritual including worship, pastoral care, personal spiritual devel- opment and education." She al- so enjoys music and poetry and intends to develop a gardener's green thumb. Stephanie McMillin, who chairs the church pas- tor/parish relations commit- tee, announced Wood's ap- pointment. "We are thrilled to have Donna join our little church!" McMillin said. "She comes with broad pastoral ex- perience as well as a perspec-: tive gained through her time: in the Peace Corps (Nepal) and in private business." Wood's first service will be i Sunday, July 1. Her office: hours are yet to be determined. Anyone who needs assistance may contact Wood by calling the church office at 283-1740. Quincy United Methodist Church welcomes all to wor- ship Sunday.
