May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful fr iends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours.
- Irish blessing
Love and laughter, peace and plenty—we wish this for all of you this St. Patrick’s Day, and we hope the offerings on our pages this month provide joy that endures.
First, Karen Kelly tells us about her love of alpacas, the fuzzy, long-lashed sweethearts who provide luxurious fibers for knitters’ pleasure. Then, be inspired by the Tehama County youth who are immersed in joyful learning at Makerspace. Their creativity is channeled through electronics, computer coding, graphic arts, videography and engineering, and they’re building the futures they want.
Speaking of futures, the Shasta Angel Group for Entrepreneurs helps brilliant ideas bloom by bridging the disconnect between investors and startups. Meanwhile, Shasta College is teaching by example when it comes to sustainability—it models excellent stewardship by generating solar energy, recycling all over campus, using kitchen scraps to fortify its farm animals and much more. We’ll tell you more about their efforts.
Baseball fans know Tim Flannery as a professional ballplayer and coach. Musicians know him as a member of Lunatic Fringe. We’ll tell you how he has blended both of those passions to benefit others—and when you can see him perform in Redding.
Then follow that rainbow in the sky, and you’ll likely find that elusive pot of gold right in the middle of downtown Weaverville. Th is charming gold rush town is a lovely destination for a Sunday drive.
May the luck of the Irish smile upon you always. Enjoy!
