Railroad Days has been a Blairsden the same weekendnity to showcase Eastern 832-6032. An idea that grew @grew Tiffany Williams, administrative assistant at Eastern Plumas Health Care, came up with an idea that just grew and grew. Her brother, Kyle Short, is in the military, stationed in Iraq. Wouldn't it be nice, she thought, if she could collect items soldiers could use and send them, not just to her brother, but also to close family members of other EPHC employees. Donation boxes were placed at EPHC and several other locations. Williams received so many donations -- everything from paper goods, to toiletries, snacks and reading materi- al (including newspapers from Feather Publishing) -- that she put together nearly 30 large boxes. There were more, in fact, than there were names from EPHC employees, so Williams, ever resourceful, sent the extra boxes to her brother to distribute to friends in his unit. Williams carefully packed each box herself. EPHC is paying for postage. Most box- es are headed for soldiers in Iraq. Here, Williams gets a helping hand from Linda Marshall, window clerk at the Portola post office. Williams and Short grew up in Quincy. Photo by Michael Peters | Or is it?

Its sole purpose is to get together for fun and friendship. Thirteen ladies met in the - lovely backyard garden of Judy Morrow Wednesday, July 7. Adorned in their beautiful red hats and purple outfits the ladies met for their first official gathering. They were honored to have Queen Kitty from The Red Hot Mamas in Chester, who shared her scrapbook of that Red Hat group and how members kept track of the events of their group. Queen Kitty also bestowed gifts to Queen Doreene for her new chapter. The Red Hatters of Quincy will meet for lunch the first Wednesday of the month, usually in different local restaurants. Other events planned are a High Tea in Susanville July 24, riding in the Plumas County Fair, and going to see the play "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" in Chico in September. Women interested in join- ing this group of fun-loving women may call Queen Doreene at 283-3538. Sticky Buns Muffins 1690 E. Main St., Quincy 530-283.9111
