News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond - February 19, 2020

On March 3 there will be several elections, some local, some not so. In order to have things working well, it is important to stay involved, take part in making decisions, or not complain. At Yuba Feather Community Services that annual election of board members will take place soon after 7 pm at the community center. On the board of nine members, each year three come up for reelection or replacement. In addition, there have been a couple of members resign. It is important to take part in the organization that operates the community center, park, amphitheater and fields. Come cast your vote.

The weather sure has been spring like. But don’t be fooled, winter is not over yet. It’s just hiding, waiting to leap out again. My daffodils have bloomed and I have seen snow on their little heads more than once.


            Look Back in Time – In 1906 forty pupils attended Forbestown school (now you can visit the Yuba Feather museum in Forbestown and see a replica of Forbestown school).
