News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond

The new craft workshops at Books & More on Saturday mornings are going well. We have a new crafter who volunteered to teach a group how to dye Russian Easter Eggs. It is quite an interesting process; this workshop will be offered on April 13. Stop in or call for more information (675-3275). Each week there is different workshop offered.

Yuba Feather Community Services will be holding their annual election tonight at 7:00. This group does a great deal for the communities by organizing and running Ponderosa community center and park. They hold an open meeting each month on the second Tuesday from 7 to 9 pm. Please come by and get involved in some of the

programs. The big change they are working on this season is making changes in the Farmer's Market: times, location, and additional features. A day for Family Kickball is being planned also, so come get involved.

There will be a special presentation at Stone Soup on Thursday, March 14, about a program called Air Med Care. It is an ambulance membership program that gives you helicopter transportation when one needs an air ambulance. This program will begin at 1:00 at the community center. Come by for lunch first at noon if you would like. `

Look Back in Time – In 1903 the 8th and 9th grades of Upham School in Rackerby were having extra lessons in surveying, map-drawing, bookkeeping, and natural philosophy (good practical skills).

Hope to see you in Brownsville soon. Christine and Yvonne
