My Town: Like Family
Danielle Ramey - Red Bluff - Ramey Construction
My husband Josh and I were both born and raised in Northern California. We reside in rural Red Bluff with our three boys and enjoy the slower pace of life. From the day that Josh and I met, we have dreamed about buying property and building our family home. That dream became a reality when we purchased 20 acres, and later constructed our new home. From our back porch we can explore Red Bank Creek and view endless rolling hills. From our front porch, we can watch our cattle graze and see both Mt. Shasta and Lassen Peak. Living out here, it is easy to lose yourself in the beauty that is Tehama County.
We love our local community, which has always had that small town charm. Whether it be the Red Bluff Round-Up, the Farmer’s Market or the Tehama District Fair, the people in our town take great pride in these activities and we love being a part of it.
Josh is a general contractor and we started Ramey Construction in 2008. We specialize in home renovations of all magnitude. It is incredible to see a home go through a complete transformation and know that we were a part of it. While being self-employed has its challenges, we truly enjoy what we do.
When we are not working, we are usually down at the Little League field. I am a Red Bluff Little League Board Member, and Josh manages our sons’ teams. There is so much joy and pride sitting down in the crowded bleachers with all our baseball friends and family, and seeing the excitement in the fan’s faces with every hit, catch and steal. I feel like the Little League field is the heart of our small town and it’s magical to watch these kids play together under the lights.
Witnessing the friendships that have been made between the players out on these fields is something I will never forget. We have spent countless hours at the ballpark – helping, coaching, watching and cheering, and there is no place I would rather be.
I have seen our town come together in good times and in bad. Sometimes, it is to mourn the loss of a young community member, or to support a fundraiser to help better our parks. Sometimes, it is patronizing the small business owners by shopping local and participating in events like the Art Walk and the Beef and Brew. We are all experiencing trying times in our own local communities. However, we have a choice in how we handle it. Tehama County residents have proven that they will provide, gather and support when called upon, and for that, I am grateful to be a part of it.
