We begin this month by honoring the mothers in our life, and end it by paying solemn tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation – it’s the perfect time for reflection. 

Artists color our world, and Phil Dynan and Anastasia Nelson do this in an especially bright and bold way. The owners of the Red Bluff Art Gallery are a creative force who have left multicolored marks on the community, to the delight of those who stumble upon their work. Others deliver their creative talent in a more musical way, including the Buckhorn Mountain Stompers, an eclectic, salt-of-the-earth ensemble that will release its first CD soon.

Behold, the magnificent mushroom – you’ll find plenty at the 12th annual McCloud Mushroom Festival, in a town where mushroom hunting is serious business. Wine tasting, music and informative workshops will be featured, and you can cap off the day with a scoop of mushroom ice cream. 

Ready for a physical challenge? The inaugural Shasta Cascade Weekend Sports Festival offers options for everyone from 5K walkers to triathletes, and it will show off some of Shasta County’s finest attributes to participants from near and far.

As a women-owned business, we at Enjoy Magazine have a soft spot for building strong, smart and bold girls, and Girls Inc. does just that. The local chapter is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a brunch and awards ceremony.

And finally, Enjoy’s in-house fashionista reveals her tips for putting together a stylish summer wardrobe that will keep you looking cool when the temperatures soar.  

Savor the last few weeks of spring, and enjoy!
