    The Lure Resort, located a mile east of Downieville, on highway 49 towards Sierra City, is a gem for anyone who wants to come visit Sierra County. It's located right on the river with great cabins and log camping tents. It's actually the first place I stayed at, when I came  to Sierra County the first time.

    Not only is is a great place to stay, but, they have a fabulous monthly newsletter. It's a treat when it shows up, even for me who live here, as it's always full of goodies-- from great photos, to great information to coupons for local businesses, or savings on a stay at the Lure. If you want to keep an eye on what is going on up here (like, the opener of the trout season is this upcoming Saturday, April 26!), I recommend you subscribe to it. I know I enjoy the arrival in my inbox.

    Plans for Sierra City’s 150th birthday celebration are taking shape. Save the weekend of June 21-22 for a trip back in time. The highlight will be the melodrama Never Trust a Sierra City Slicker at the Kentucky Mine Amphitheatre. There will also be walking tours, living history activities, a historic photo exhibit, and a picnic in the park. You will have the opportunity to pose for a vintage portrait, to be part of a photograph of all the current residents, and even to be thrown into the hoosegow.

    The next planning meeting will be Tuesday, February 18 at 7:00 pm at the Sierra City Community Hall.

    Looking for an old-fashioned family holiday adventure?  Consider a family outing into the forest to cut your own beautiful Christmas tree! The Tahoe National Forest Yuba River Ranger District will sell 200 Christmas tree cutting permits from November 22 through December 24 or until permits are sold out at two locations, one in Downieville and one in Sierra City, CA.

    The non-refundable permits are $10 each with a limit of two per family and are valid up to and including December 24. Permits must be purchased in person using either cash or a check.

    CUTTING IS ALLOWED IN DESIGNATED AREAS ONLY. Permit purchasers will receive maps to designated cutting areas along with other information about choosing a tree.  Certain cutting areas may be inaccessible after snowfall, so it is advisable to cut trees early in the season.

    Come up to Sierra County and experience a fun-filled day of cutting your own holiday tree and viewing the beautiful scenery along Hwy. 49! 

    Additional information and permits may be purchased at these locations:
    > Sierra Hardware
305 Main Street Downieville, CA 95936 (530) 289-3582
    > Sierra Country Store 213 Main Street Sierra City, CA 96125 (530) 862-1560

    2014 is just around the corner, and most of us are slowing down a bit and taking a deep breath after an incredibly busy and fun season. But, this is not the time to slack off! It's time to renew your membership -- and don't miss out on the early bird discount! Back by popular demand, anyone joining the chamber with an ad, or renewing their existing membership with an ad, gets $25 off the annual fee.

    The chamber budget comes from two places: the county and you -- the members. We have seen our budget slashed on the county side, but have seen an increase in membership which is encouraging and helps us all focus on the increased promotional activities. But that has to continue. The chamber is the sum of its members! Without you we're nothing. Please help the team of volunteers that work so hard on promoting our incredible slice of heaven on earth by making your membership renewal early.

    By joining or renewing early, you allow volunteer to spend less time trying to track you down in the depth of winter. The reason we need to have renewals in early is that we have to send the visitors guide off to print in the mid-winter in order to have it in time for the late Spring season opening. So, instead we can all spend more time on the website, the guide, events, and other activities.

    Please help us by signing up now -- and take advantage of the $25 off discount for early bird registrations. You can sign up or renew online or fill out a PDF form (online or on paper) and mail us a check.

    Thank you!

    In 2006 Lorraine Brown Hennings conveyed her property known as "the Flats" in Sierra City to Sierra County. It was desire that the property, which had been known as Sierra City Park since the early 1980s, would officially become a park to for the benefit, use, and enjoyment of the children of Sierra City.

    The park has been wonderfully improved, with great features such as new playground equipment, a new baseball backstop & bases, a drinking fountain, a horseshoe pit, new sturdy picnic tables, benches and barbecue grills for all to use and enjoy.

    The official dedication ceremony, in memory of Lorraine Brown Hennings, will be this Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome to come and celebrate-- we hope you will be able to attend.

    The improvements to the community park have been funded with Proposition 40 funds, more formally known as the California Clean Water, Clean Air, Safe Neighborhood Parks, and Coastal Protection Act of 2002.

    Again, we hope to see you there!

    Sierra City Sesquicentennial!

    The Sierra City Post Office will mark its 150th birthday on June 23, 2014.

    Local history buffs propose that a celebration is in order to commemorate this sesquicentennial.  An event planning session will be held at the Sierra City Community hall on Monday, September 30th at 7:00 p.m. Community organizations, local businesses, and individuals are encouraged to attend and put in their two-cents-worth.
     
    This is a better deal than when, prior to the establishment of the first post office, mail was delivered by the Pony Express via Marysville and Downieville at the rate of one dollar per letter.  If you don’t want to pony up the gas money to attend the meeting, send your suggestions to mnourse46@gmail.com.
