Community News Wednesday, July 25, 2001 9A Z,~ ":'" ++" '*" Photos by Victoria Metcalf Caltrans crews spent last week relining crosswalks and laying down directional ar- rows on the main streets in Quincy. Using stripes that come in packages, one mem- ber of the team heated the roadway, then another put down the striping where it stuck in place. IB The numbers are in. The "well-oiled machine" has done it again. The seventh annual Plumas-Sierra Friends of NRA Dinner was this year's number one dinner in North- ern California, the top net per person event in Northern California and currently the top net to gross dinner in the western region. The dinner netted $35,151. David Bundesen, NRA Se- nior Field Representative for Northern California, Western Nevada and Hawaii, congrat- ulated this year's dinner chairman, Dan Taylor, and his corqMittee for another award- "inning event. "There are various things to do to have a successful din- ner and your committee does them all. My hat is off to you and the community for mak- ing the dinner so much fun and so successful," Bundesen said. Friends of NRA, organized in 1992, is a nationwide grass- roots fund-raising program. Volunteers work together to organize dinners and other events to generate income for the Y-Gundation, a nonprofit division of the .National Rifle Association. These funds are used for- shooting range development, habitat for hunters, firearms education and safety, conser- vation research, marksman- ship training and Second Amendment education. "The dinners show people that the NRA is about safety, responsibility and freedom," Bundesen concluded. "Your events are an outstanding ex- ample of what a small com- munity can accomplish."
