A���� 6, 2011 Quartzsite Community Thrift Store now open Ribbon Cutting April 9 - 10am By Joanne Winer We are pleased to announce that the new Quartzsite Community Thrift Store is now open for business. The thrift store is located behind Silly Al’s Pizza at the end of Showplace Lane where the Salvation Army store was. The Salvation Army needed a bigger facility, and got some land across from Isaiah Project on Moon Mountain Road and will be building a new store there. The Quartzsite Community Thrift Store will not be repeating the func- tions of the Salvation Army--the Salva- tion Army will still be helping people with their rents, electric etc. at their new location. This is a much needed service for Quartzsite, and we wish them all the best in their new facility. The new thrift store will help other select organizations who do not have a way to raise funds to get what they need, especially our first responders-- the Police Dept., Fire Dept, and Search and Rescue. The funds raised at the new store will be used to help these organizations get some needed equip- ment or help with scholarships to pro- vide training for their jobs. It will also be used to help the schools with some of their needs, and help meet the needs of the community that are restricted by Salvation Army policies. ���.D����� M��������.��� NEW THRIFT STORE OPENS The new store is now open from Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will go on summer hours next month. Donations are being ac- cepted and can be brought to the store during business hours. There will be an open house and rib- bon cutting ceremony by the Quartz- site Business Chamber of Commerce held on Saturday, April 9 at 10 a.m. Everyone is invited to some and see the new store and meet the volunteers. Your support is greatly appreciated. Just Rambling... My older brother had a band for about thirty years. He could play any instrument just using a road map. My mother played guitar and my step dad played the fiddle. They all played by ear and laughed when I tooted the trombone. My younger brother sang off key.

Linda Gray came up with the idea after her friend Oney Budge sold Christmas cards in the Horizon Community Bank at Christmas time 2010. The response from the public was remarkable, en- joying all the desert cards. Linda would like to invite any artist to sub- mit a painting to be photographed for the 2011 card series. Cards are produced from a photo of your Christmas around Quartzsite painting. The painting can be dis- played in the bank throughout the Christmas season and may be for sale if you’d like. Painting should be 8”x10” or larger and desert Christmas theme P��� 11 preferred. Your painting can be of any medium. For information contact Lin- da Gray at 541-741-2988.
