The students attending Soldier Mountain High School decided to support the Intermountain Hospice “Chair-ity” auction fundraiser again.

“The Hospice organization is very important to our class and community.” Christian Flores and Jayden Horta, class spokespersons, said. “We have participated in helping raise money for Hospice the last four years now and always look forward to this project in class. The theme of our project this year is to honor a very special person and we enjoy being a part of this event. We want to do our small part in helping those families that are in need. Please come and support the ‘Chair-ty’ auction fundraiser on Saturday, Oct 4th and bid on our project.”

Library Celebrates their Solar Array
The Fall River Valley library is excited to announce that the installation of 30 solar panels on the roof of the library has been completed and service is scheduled to start soon. The solar system will defray up to 100 % of the cost of the library’s electrical usage and the system should last for many years.

Many individual and business donors supported the library’s efforts and, with grants from the McConnell Fund, the Burney Regional Community Fund and the Redding Rancheria Community Fund, all of the Shasta Regional Foundation, the project became a reality. In particular, the kick-off of the solar funding campaign by donor Steve Woodrum, who matched all individual donations, was essential. To celebrate reaching our goal and to honor all of these donors, the community is invited to a “Solar Project Completion Reception” on October 9, 2014 at 5 p.m. in the Library Garden. A tour of the project and an opportunity to ask questions of the solar contractor, Dave Moyer, are planned.

With the completion of the solar project, the library joins other Intermountain residents and organizations who are using this technology to cut costs and help reduce the country’s dependence on fossil fuels.
