Interact Students perform community service at Bella Vista Farms

From Bob Jehn:

Underscoring their penchant for community service, members of the Interact Clubs of Burney and Fall River High Schools spent Sunday, October 28 performing chores at the only animal rescue center in Shasta County.

Interact students from Fall River and Burney after four hours of hard work at Bella Vista Farms in Cottonwood.

Fall River Interact member Jessica Mayer found a friend at the animal rescue center in Cottonwood.

Sixteen students descended upon Bella Vista Farms in Cottonwood to muck out animal stalls and clear brush for fire protection supervised by Interact Advisors Bob Jehn, Willie Rodriquez, and Brenda Rodriguez. Burney High School Science teacher Mark Harner wielded a chain saw while students dragged branches and weeds into burn piles to be burned later this fall.

Owners and operators of the facility, Chic Miller and her husband Bob, ages 71 and 80, respectively, were very grateful for the help as they depend on only grant funding and private donations to support the operation. The facility houses over 100 animals that have been abandoned, abused, or injured, and as Chic says, “We don’t adopt out – the animals live out their lives at Bella Vista Farms.”

Chic does much of the veterinary work at the facility, and has written a book about caring for animals.

The Interact Club of Fall River High School has also made monetary contributions to the facility to help support the work that Chic and Bob do. After the latest contribution from the Interactors Chic said, “Oh my gosh, I can’t thank you all enough…I can’t tell you how much I love you kids.”

New bike rack at Ray’s Market

Ray’s Market Manager Marty Stryker added a service beside the store’s northside parking lot in Fall River Mills. Healthy Shasta donated the really nice art piece masquerading as a bike rack. Burney-Fall River Bicycle Association members Bill Johnson and Bill Campbell installed the rack.
