This event has been wildly. successful for the nonprofits that benefit from the ticket sales and the sale of the wearable art. The very talented Mavis Somers paints her art right onto the material of the dresses and skirts she sews and the results are amazing. Many of our volunteers will be models for the skirts and dresses and our volunteers will also be cooking, baking and serving the hors d'oeuvres. Needless to say, we are busy planning and prepping for the show while taking care of a site full of kittens and cats! Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Please attend and support our non-profit while being ready for a really fun evening. Last week we received a call from someone whose dog had brought in a small kitten after her morning "outing." The kitten still had its eyes closed and after depositing the baby with her owner, the dog's insistence on going outside again told the woman that there were undoubtedly more babies to be found. The dog led them to a box of four small kittens abandoned in a field next to their house. After bottle-feeding the five, Friends was called to help re-home the kittens. We now have them in the back playroom of the site -- one tuxedo, one calico a.nd three orange sweeties who are now 7 weeks old and ready to be adopted. Add those five to the 10 others that are also waiting and you have a grand selection of colors, ages and temperaments to chose from in adopting your new best friend. All our animals get individual attention dally and all are social and affectionate. If old enough they are spayed or neutered and wormed and given their Rhino vaccinations. If you are in the market for a Maine coon, manx, calico (we have three), black, black and white, tabby, orange, shy or dominant cat we have them all! We also have two young adult cats that were indoor/outdoor pets and who would LOVE to have a good barn home or a home where they can be outdoors again most of the time. Friends does not charge an adoption fee for our animals and our rescue is solely dependent on your generosity and donations. End of year tax deductible gifts are most welcomed and appreciated. Thank you. Hope to see you at the Fashion Fashionistas show! Friends of PC Animals is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation and all donations are tax deductible. Donations can be sent to Friends, PO Box 182, Quincy 95971 or brought to the site at 2163 E. Main St. Thank you for your continued support. coal " The Feather River Stewardship Coalition has several events planned during the month of October. The group is embarking on an effort to adopt the Lakes Basin Projectthat the Plumas National Forest is currently planning. That project will treat up to 7,000 acres of land within the Lakes Basin area to improve forest health and reduce hazards around recreation sites. Activities include mechanical thinning, grapple piling, mastication, hand thinning and underburning. ' In preparation for FRSC's involvement in that process, a meeting is planned on Oct. 19, at 1 p.m, at Pangea Cafe and Pub in Quincy to discuss the Coalition's areas of interest within the project: FRSC will be commenting throughout the federal environmental process for the Lakes Basin project, and the group has been invited to work with the Beckwourth Ranger District to help with on-the-ground insight, and developing treatments and operational methods. The Quincy meeting will be followed by a field trip on Oct: 29 to view potential treatments of meadow areas within the project area. Details on the time and starting location of the field trip will be posted on the Feather River Stewardship Coalition website, Both the public meeting and field trip are open to the public to learn more about 1 the project and to become involved in the collaborative ! planning process. The Lakes Basin sessions are in addition to the monthly meeting, which will be held on Oct. 21, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Indian Valley Community Center in Greenville. The first voting round of a logo contest to determine the new logo for the Coalition will be held at this meeting.
