News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond

Yuba Feather Next Step has been organized about a year now and is planning to apply for our 501c3 in order to work as a non-profit organization. The Meals on Wheels program is beginning and the group plans to get a vehicle so that we can deliver meals. At this point if you are 60 years or older and are housebound (or know of someone who is) please call Agency on Aging (916 486 1876) and get signed up. At this point,5 free meals will be available at Stone Soup on Thursday afternoons at the community center downstairs. Call Books & More for more information.

The Yuba Feather Historical Association had an interesting meeting last week. After a great BBQ and potluck, various old tools were displayed. Members brought tools that had a tale, a past story. In our own group, there are many interesting tales to share. This group meets quarterly for a pot luck and business meeting. For more information, please visit the museum in Forbestown on a weekend afternoon. The museum will close on September 1 this year, so you have a month to check it out.

Saturday, September 1 will be the next community yard sale held at the Brownsville Mercantile and Books & More on Willow Glen Rd in Brownsville. Vendor space is free. A tamale lunch will be available. Come on down and find out what glorious treasure could come your way. If you are downsizing or cleaning out that garage, bring your items on down for sale. This will be the last organized yard sale event for the season but everyone is welcome to set up a sales space at any time.

Look Back in time – In 1925 boys swimming in Dry Creek near Oregon House found a bucket with gold nuggets in the bottom under sand. There was the date 1868 on the side of the bucket (wonder how much that would be worth today).

Hope to see you in Brownsville soon. Christine and Yvonne
