Healthcare Foundation to Open Lucky Finds
McARTHUR — The Mayers Intermountain Healthcare Foundation (MIHF) is embarking on a new adventure. The Foundation has plans to open a resale store, Lucky Finds on 299, in November. It will offer quality gently-used furniture, home furnishings, sporting, hunting goods and more.

The store has been in the making for about three years.

Dave and Ginny Hanna, residents of the Intermountain area, came to the foundation with the idea and offered to donate enough furniture items, among an array of other items, to open the store.

Through this project and its proceeds, the foundation will help support and enhance the continuation of the services offered by Mayers Memorial Hospital.

The resale store will be staffed by volunteers. The foundation will look for donations of items for the new store.

Look for upcoming ads in the local newspapers for the opening date of Lucky Finds on 299, and store hours. The new store will be located in the McArthur Square next to the post office.

Three Free “Women’s Empowerment Hour” Classes Scheduled for October 27 at Mayers
Mayers Memorial Hospital District recognizes the importance of being prepared. Being in a small community sometimes makes us complacent and comfortable. Our children attend small schools where they know and trust most everyone.

MMHD is hosting an event at the hospital in Fall River Mills on Monday, October 27th. There will be three “Women’s Empowerment Hour” classes at 10:30 am, 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m..

Statistics show 1 in 5 women will be assaulted in their lifetime. Damsel in Defense is a company developed by women for women. Their vision is to make women safe at work, home and play.

The event is FREE and although Damsels in Defense offers products for sale, no purchase is required. The hospital will earn product if anything is sold and will in turn be giving that product away as prizes. There will be door prizes and light snacks. Bring a friend and receive a free gift. Please, no children or infants, but spouses are welcome.

We ask that you RSVP for a specific time so we can be prepared. Contact vlakey@mayersmemorial. com or (530)336-5511 ext. 1136.

Public Hearing on Weight Limit Planned
FALL RIVER MILLS — The Shasta County Public Works Department plans to have a public hearing about their plan to re-place a weight restriction of 3-tons on the Spring Creek Bridge in Glenburn.

The weight limit was 3-tons and it currently bears signs saying 3-tons.

A spokesman for Public Works says that Cal Trans, who does the bridge inspections coded the weight limit in wrong. The County caught the error, had Cal Trans re-inspect the bridge and the results showed that 3-tons was the maximum safe weight for that bridge.

The spokesman says Public Works does want a public hearing before officially putting that restriction in force.

The hearing will be at 1 p.m., November 5 at the Veterans Hall in Fall River Mills.
