News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond

Meals (without) Wheels will be beginning soon. A freezer is being delivered to the community center next week and will hold 5 meals weekly for those who qualify for the program. One must be 60 years old or older and be housebound to qualify. Soon we hope to have transportation to deliver the meals. For now, however, people who qualify can pick up their frozen meals at the community center downstairs on Thursday afternoons during Stone Soup. We will be gathering information soon, so if you know of someone who qualifies, call Books & More (675-3275). This is a Pilot Program sponsored by the Agency on Aging and they will help us with transportation.

Play at the Ponderosa will resume the program July 11 and continue each Wednesday afternoon until August 1. This group, with no age limits, has fun with crafts, games and puzzles as well as playing at the park. It starts at 12:30 and goes until about 4:00. Although the meeting is free, we do pay rent for the building and so donations are appreciated.

The Yuba Feather Historical Association is holding their regular potluck on July 25. This will take place at the museum in Forbestown, gathering at 6:00 and eating about 6:30. This group works hard at maintaining the museum and holds quarterly general meetings. Their next ice cream social will take place on Sunday, July 15 at the museum. This is a chance to get a dish of great ice cream, thanks to Collins Lake for donating the ice cream, and visit with friends and neighbors. Root Beer floats and sundaes will be available and all proceeds help maintain the museum.

The workers at Brownsville Thrift Shop would like the community to know that by shopping at the Thrift Shop you helped pay for the shiny new fire truck seen at the Fire Station. Thanks.

Look Back in Time – In 1910 R. H. Ermatinger took a load of lumber to Honcut and will haul a load of hay for Ruff & Ermantinger's logging camp at Scales (hauling up and down the hill, pretty normal for these days, too),

Looking forward to seeing you in Brownsville soon. Christine and Yvonne
