Business Scene for the Week of 07/09/19

The Lassen Aurora Network is having an open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 13 at their offices on Cottage Street in Susanville. They’re celebrating their 15 year anniversary and welcome the community to enjoy complimentary food and fun. Did you know that they offer several free community outreach programs that include family time, women’s tea, meditation, Vet-2-Vet support group and much more? Lassen Aurora Network is your community resource for wellness services. Check them out today.


It’s time for the annual Church Picnic in the Park. Several area churches will be sponsoring this free community event that will take place at 10:30 a.m. July 14 at the Lloyd Keefer Park in Janesville. Come early as the program starts promptly at 10:30 a.m. Pastor Tony Loubet will present a special message, “The Lamb of God.” There will be a free barbecue lunch following the message. So bring your family, friends and a lawn chair or blanket and join them for music, worship and fellowship.


Honey Lake Hospice will be having their monthly support group meeting at 6:30 p.m. July 17 at the Lassen Library. Grief is a personal journey, and you don’t just “get over it.” Many people often need guidance and support to just survive and cope … and then to heal. No matter how long it has been since you lost your loved one, this free community program can help you find new tools for healing the grief within. You don’t need to be alone with your pain. Many people find the greatest benefit just being with others who understand how traumatic and lonely the loss can be. If you or someone you love would like to learn more about the services available through Honey Lake Hospice, you’ll find information in this week’s ad.
