This Saturday, Nov. 26, is Small Business Saturday- a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do and give to the community. So, why not get a start on your holiday shopping and shop our local small businesses this Saturday?

Speaking of Small Business Saturday, be sure and stop by Hodge Podge Lodge as owner Kelly Smith is having a great special for her customers this Saturday. Of course, if you’re out shopping this Friday (Black Friday) be sure and see what specials Kelly has that day as well.

Every Bloomin’ Thing is also having special shopping deals in honor of Small Business Saturday, as well as Black Friday. Sip her new line of Crafted Cocktails while you stroll through their Christmas gift shop. The first 20 customers get a free gift with purchase!

Remember to stop by Milwood Florist & Nursery. Owners Sam and Patty Glass are now carrying Lularoe clothing, specialty lotions, jewelry, truffles and more.


AAA in Susanville is sponsoring a drive for the Humane Society. They are looking for donations of dog and cat food, as well as kitty litter, collars and leashes for dogs and cats. Toys and treats are always good. You can drop off your donations at their office, 2920 D Main Street in Susanville. They will be collecting donations until Dec. 15. 


If you have some extra time on your hands and would like to help the Herlong community, they could use the help. The Herlong Library still has some data entering that needs to be done before the library can open. If that’s not your thing, the Herlong Family Resource Center/Second Hand Store needs some help. If you’d like to help either of these two out, call Janis or Dede at 827-3007. They would really appreciate it.

Plumas Bank’s 2017 Calendar

Plumas Bank’s 2017 photo wall calendar featuring the local photographers and the perennial theme: “There’s No Place Like Home,” is now available free at your local bank office. Elizabeth Kuipers, vice president and marketing manager for the bank, extends their thanks to all the talented photographers who submitted their photos for consideration for this year’s calendar. Featured photographers this year were Britt Burkholder, Mike Nellor, Steven McGovern, Lisa Turcotte, Jay Rice, Marti Bethel, Heather McQuarrie, Issac Sanders, Chris Bosco, Jan Davies, Kathy Beatty, Cynthia Hughes, and Kerry Wilson. Each year the bank gives away $100 to one of the photographers whose work was selected for publication and this year Issac was the lucky winner.
