News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond - March 4, 2020

        Have you been to Stone Soup lately? It is approaching its fourth year, pretty amazing. We have

special days, like a birthday cake and a song every 4th Thursday. On the second Thursday of the month, we have a Souper Sale with lots of goodies that helps support the program. Now on the fourth Thursday we plan to have games after lunch. Colleen Jarboe will plan this and get it started. This week it will be Mexican Train; who knows what next month will bring. Of course, there is always a jigsaw puzzle to be worked on and checkers and other games available. We are glad to have friends and neighbors gather at the community center around 11:30 to visit, then eat together at noon. Come join us.


        The elections will be over by the time you read this: the Yuba Feather Community Services board of directors as well as Super Tuesday. Will there be any changes? What will the effect on our lives be? We hope you took the time to vote. We are pretty fortunate to be able to cast our votes.


            Here we go again! Time to move those clocks ahead. Daylight saving will be upon us on March 8th, so be sure to “Spring Forward” your clocks before you go to bed on the 7th.


            Weather permitting, there will be a Peddler’s Fair at Books and More, in Brownsville, on Saturday, March 14th from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Space is free and first come first serve. Come on down, set up your booth and sell your wares. If you want more information contact Christine Mills at 530-675-9225 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Look Back in Time – Only the organ and the teacher's desk were saved when the Upham School burned in 1917. All students got out safely, led by teacher Mrs. Mary McMillan (I always wanted to go up the Upham road, maybe next time).


            Hope to see you in Brownsville soon.    Christine and Yvonne
