4A Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Community BBQ While preparing a grilled chicken Caesar salad for the United Methodist Community Sup- per program this summer, members of the Quincy Rotary Club decided a new gas barbe- cue would greatly benefit the ministry's tremendously successful nine-year-old program. The supper, held .Wednesdays at 6 p.m. at the church on Jackson Street, feeds 90 - 180 people weekly. Above is Rotary president Ken George and supper program co-leaders Larry Trotter and Angela Elliott. If you, your family or organization would like to host a meal or help in some way -- donations are always welcome -- call Elliott at 283-1478.

"We do experience a high- er number of requests than usual at this time of the year," said Geri Bernard, co- chairman of C.A.N.'s board of directors. "We distribute 300 Christmas food boxes each year, so our resources get hit pretty hard." With the sad state of the local economy, Bernard ex- pects a greater than ever need for C.A.N.'s services. "Folks who haven't had to worry before are now at a point where the service we provide is a real safety net." Many community mem- bers contact C.A.N. during the holidays to ask how they can help. "'We are always grateful for any donations of food items the public is kind enough to give us," said Bernard, "but monetary do- nations are a huge help at this time of year." C.A.N. is able to purchase food and other needed com- modities from the Food Bank of Northern Nevada at a lower cost than a member of the public has access to. "It means we can stretch a monetary donation further," she added. C.A.N. relies heavily on Quincy's local grocery stores for much of its supply of food. "We are really fortu- nate that the management at C.A.N. co-chairman Geri Bernard puts together a food box for one of the organization's many clients. Photo submitted both Safeway and SavMor, as well as the Co-op (Quincy Natural Foods), are so gen- erous," commented Dick Elsken, C.A.N.'s other co- chairman, "We couldn't do what we do without them." Even so, when the holi- days hit, C.A.N.'s services are more important than ever. "No matter how small," said Elsken, "mone- tary donations are very ap- preciated. Every single dol- lar helps." Anyone who would like to donate this season may send a check, payable to C.A.N., to P.O. Box 1796 in Quincy or drop it off at the crisis center across from Dame Shirley Plaza. 4-H group meets tonight Kirsten Klement Club reporter The first meeting of Amer- ican Valley 4-H was at the Mineral Building, at the fairgrounds, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m. The election of club offi- cers was held: President Ashley Nieman; Vice Presi- dent Lindsey Jensen; Secre- tary Brianne Farnworth- Turner; Treasurer Kealey Froggatt; Reporter Kirsten Klement; Sergeants-of-Arms Claire Coelho and Rebecca Leonhardt; and Livestock Sales Committee Represen- tatives Claire Coelho, Rebec- ca Leonhardt and Jace Champlin-Spackman. Members discussed the taco dinner fundraiser and tickets were given out. Members also discussed the Bears and Blankets Community Service Project. Members were given in- structions on how to make a blanket out of fleece materi- al (available at American Valley Hardware) and to pick a bear from the Dollar Tree. In addition, members may purchase the materials and drop off them off at La Sier- ra Lanes, or make a dona- tion to help pay for the mate- rials.
