Photo courtesy Face the Music Studio Face the Music Studio is proud to announce that the 12th annual Spring Concert featuring the High Sierra Community Youth Orchestra was a huge success. Approximately 180 people showed up to listen to the evening of music. "The featured young performers all played fabulously and the orchestra performed beautifully," said director Johnene McDonald. "It was obvious that the audience enjoyed the variety of musical selections. The intermission featured a savory variety of potluck refreshments. The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended." McDonald thanks the Central Plumas Recreation and Park District, Plumas Arts, Plumas Unified School District, Quincy Elementary School and all of the musicians who made this performance possible and successful. The 2014-15 orchestra session will start rehearsing again in October and will start working on new music for the annual County Courthouse Potluck Concert in December. Plumas Arts will be presenting the Courthouse Lawn Art Show on Saturday, June 28, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Last year was Plumas Arts' first try at bringing back the much-loved local event that had previously taken place on the courthouse lawn over the Fourth of July weekend. The public is invited to come and enjoy fine art booths and stroll around downtown Quincy on a sunny summer Saturday. Vendors come from far and wide offering one-of-a-kind items for sale. Booth space is still available for handmade arts and crafts and information booths.

Proceeds from a fundraising dinner to be held at Whitehawk Restaurant on June 17 will go toward the wish list. The restaurant hosts a "Keep It Local" fundraising dinner once a month to support local organizations. Bob Battistoni, the program's coordinator, wants to ensure that this year's event is a successland he is encouraging the public to attend. In addition to the dinner, • attendees will be able to bid on a variety of items including overnight golf packages, art, beauty treatments and much more. "It's really a nice event," Battistoni said of the evening. Members of ALIVE are familiar faces in the community, largely because the program focuses on integration. It assists men and women age 18 and older with developmental disabilities to live independently, develop job skills and fmd employment. Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., program participants can sign up for a variety of classes. Many take place in the Jackson Street office of ALIVE and it's that facility that needs improving. Battistoni said the program strives to get the participants into the community as much as possible, and they work out at the fitness center and perform tasks around town such as picking up recycling at the county courthouse and other facilities. The participants can keep the money that they earn and often put it toward a variety of trips and events organized by ALIVE. Battistoni said that a core group has been part of ALIVE for many years, while others come in and out of the program. Looking to the future, Battistoni said that ALIVE is gearing up to "support people with autism," as that population continues to grow. To support ALIVE, part of Plumas Rural Services, make a reservation for the dinner by calling the Whitehawk Restaurant at 836-4985. Cocktails begin at 5 p.m., with dinner at 6 p.m. Restaurant owner Sharon Adams said the choice of entrees for the ALIVE dinner will be chicken piccata, salmon or pasta primavera.
