News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond

            Are you a regular at Stone Soup? Each Thursday at noon a great lunch is served: homemade soup, a good salad bar, and a dessert. But best of all there are many friends and neighbors to visit with. All of this for a $3.00 donation. In addition, now there is a community workshop on the first and third Thursday after lunch. We have listened to speakers give us information on evacuation plans, legal issues on trusts and reverse mortgages, and making your property as fire safe as you can. There are several other workshops planned. On the second Thursday of each month we have a Souper Sale (flea market) to help pay the bills. On the fourth Thursday we celebrate birthdays. Hope you join us.

            The Foothill Art Society will be presenting their 10th Annual Art and Wine Show on Saturday, September 7 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Hoffman Center for the Arts located on the Sutter North Medical Clinic’s grounds on Willow Glen Rd. in Brownsville. There will be entertainment, food and of course amazing artwork by local artists and various wines from local wineries to enjoy with your lunch. It is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with friends, neighbors and family.

            Next Step will have a table at the 10th Annual Art and Wine Show with pie and cobbler ala mode. All funds from the sales will go toward setting up a taxi type service for those on the hill who have no transportation. Enjoy your pie ala mode as you rest in the midst of fine art.

            The delicious soups that we all enjoyed at Mayflour Bakery are now available to take home. On the first Saturday of each month, from 9am to noon, Loretta will be at Books & More, with a selection of her soups. All soups are frozen in 4 and 8 oz containers. Here is just a short list of some of them: Chicken Pot Pie, Lemon Chicken, Lentil, Creamy Onion, Tomato Dill and the list goes on. I have used some of the soups as a base for pasta and meat or combined two soups for a whole new taste. They’re not just soup. Books & More is located on Willow Glen Rd. in Brownsville.

            CHANGE! The food giveaway that is held at the Old Grange on La Porte Rd. in Brownsville is changing their giveaway day. It will now be on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 10 am to 2 pm. Proof of residency is required.

            Look Back in Time – In 1909 Dennis LaPlant made a rich strike of quartz gold on his claim on Rabbit Creek (his lucky day).

            Hope to see you in Brownsville soon.    Christine and Yvonne
