Gearing up to do some Spring cleaning? Going to have some items you need to get rid of? Think of donating them to our local Habitat for Humanity!

The Nevada County Habitat for Humanity group has been around since 1995, but Habitat for Humanity has been helping communities for much longer. Founded in Americus, Georgia in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide.  Our local Habitat for Humanity transforms lives and communities by bringing people together to build affordable homes for working families in need.  Nevada County Habitat has built/provided homes to more than 34 families, housing over 149 individuals, including more than 99 children.

There is a severe and growing affordable housing crisis in California and in our county. With more than 48% percent of Nevada County residents paying more than they can afford in housing costs, we know that we must do more.  Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.

You donate your items directly to our local Habitat at the ReStore in Grass Valley. Donations made to our Restore are tax deductible, and a receipt is provided. The proceeds from your items support Habitat’s mission to build affordable homes in our community. Also, reuse is good for the environment! Donations can be dropped off at the store Tuesday through Saturday 9am to 4pm.

Friar Tuck’s gets a new owner!

said on February 28th, 2019 filed under: Alta Sierra, Auburn, Colfax, Grass Valley, Lake of the Pines, Lake Wildwood, Localism, Nevada City, Whimsy

Friar Tucks, a staple of downtown Nevada City for 46 years, is turning the business over to new owners! Born from a love of food and wine, owners Greg and Rona Cook included their daughter, Carissa Cook Stroh, into the business.

“For 46 years, our family has been at the corner of Pine and Commercial. To have a constant in your life for 46 years is no small thing. It is a lifetime. A lifetime of “the restaurant” being in our constant vocabulary, of amazing customers and employees, of smelling like fondue at the end of the day. A lifetime of having a home. After 46 years, the Cook family is selling Friar Tuck’s Restaurant and looking towards a new season of life.

After very careful consideration, we found a family who holds the same love in their hearts that we (and you) have had in ours. After a lifetime of working seven days a week, Rona Cook is retiring. It is time for our family to move on and time for this restaurant to have fresh, new ownership…

We invite you to join us and share your stories with us, over the next month, as we enjoy our last days with the restaurant. We will carry it with us forever.”
(Source: The Union)

Friar Tucks will be passing over the business to the new owners in April 2019. Celebrate the history though March, then go back to welcome the new owners, Ken, Donna and Chad Paige! Live music 7 days a week!
