Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015 15B ion Maggie Wells Staff Writer Plumas County fashion designers will host their third annual Fashionista Fashion Show on Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Quincy Veterans HaU. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. This year's featured designers are Mavis Sommers, Margie Meeker, Kathleen Copson, and Merilu Dillard. Dancers Vikki Dedeker-Freeman and Jackie Blanton will perform a dance to "All That Jazz" to coincide with the 1920s theme of one of the designers. The evening will also feature "Hats for Halloween," which aims to provide suggestions for fun and whimsical head wear for those averse to dressing up on Halloween. Each designer will showcase a theme to her work and use locals to model the fashions. Last year, for example, designer and artist Sommers did Day of the Dead face painting on the models and had them walking the catwalk in silks and other fabrics that she painted and drew striking images on, including some reproductions of famous, recognizable artworks. The show will also feature a no-host bar staffed by Plumas Arts volunteers and hors d'oeuvres by Plumas County Friends of Animals. The fashion show is a benefit for Plumas County Friends of Animals, Plumas Arts, and PAWS. Tickets are $20 and available at Carey Candy Co., Plumas County Friends of Animals in Quincy and at Country Style Salon in Greenville. For more information, call Meeker at 284-7279. The Quincy native plant group will hold its monthly meeting Oct. 27, at 6 p.m. at the Quincy Library with a presentation by Linnea Hanson, a nationally recognized botanist from Chico. Hanson's presentation will focus on the unique plant life of fens, a type of wetland found in many areas of Plumas County. Hanson recently compiled information about fens in California national forests for a webpage that will be part of the U.S. Forest Service's Celebrating Wildflowers website. She will talk about some of the mosses and flowering plants that are found in fens in California. She will also demonstrate features that are found on the website including how to locate wildflower viewing areas in national forests. The Quincy native plant group is an open and informal group open to the public. Participants range from experienced botanists to casual plant watchers who just want to learn a little more about the local flora. r Oct.
