Thank you to WASSUP for providing the stand up paddleboards.
Happy birthday, USA! How are you making your American dreams come true?
One big dreamer is Elyse Kierig, who has learned more at age 18 about running a business than many of us will ever know. She’s the namesake of For Elyse, and her contagious positive energy keeps customers coming back.
Ready for some old-fashioned summer fun? The Siskiyou County Golden Fair will have enough cotton candy, carnival rides and critters for the whole family to enjoy. Or take a trek up Lassen Peak – perhaps you’ll run into 9-year-old Zach Brunner, who raised money to build the trail that leads to the top.
We’re inspired by the selfless generosity of Dr. Gurpreet Sandhoo, who has been providing a made-from-scratch Indian meal for people at the Good News Rescue Mission twice a year, in honor of her late son and father. “I do believe in sharing, and this brings so many people together to share a meal. We all get a lot in return,” Sandhoo says.
Need a little more music in your life? Check out The Usual Suspects Little Big Band, a motley crew of folks who are serious about jazz. If you’d rather sing the blues, the Stone Foxes will soon be playing locally – and if you bring non-perishable food items to the show, they’ll donate them to a food bank.
Our series on downtown areas continues this month with a look at McCloud – you’ll love its blue-ribbon trout stream, waterfalls, golf course and quaint businesses.
Don’t forget to join us for Enjoy Movies in the Park, which will be at the Anderson River Park amphitheater in July. Movies start at dusk every Friday. Visit www.enjoymoviesintheparkredding.com for more information.
Happy Independence Day, and enjoy!
