You are urged to attend the Board meeting of the Mohawk Community Resource Center being held on Wednesday, December 4, 9:00 am at the Resource Center regarding the imminent closure of the Center.
Don Clark, former supervisor and founder of MCRC, along with Jeff Engel, Supervisor for our district, will be addressing the Board with regard to this notice of closure. See below for further information regarding the notice that was received from the Plumas County Board of Supervisors:
In a letter dated November 25, 2019, the County of Plumas, Facility Services, has notified Plumas Rural Services(PRS) that they will no longer pay the lease on the Mohawk Community Resource Center (MCRC) in Blairsden. The last day of occupancy will be December 31 of this year. No advance notice was received. The County has been leasing the property from the owners, Graeagle Land & Water, since 2004.
This is a tremendous blow to our community. Weekly activities like Senior Lunches, Sisters in Recovery, Pilates, Flex & Stretch, Line Dancing, Tai Chi, Italian Lessons and Qi Gong will no longer be available. Annual events such as Cinco de Mayo and the Mohawk Community Art Fair will also disappear as will the lending library and computer access with Wi-Fi availability.
The Board of Directors of the MCRC and the management at PRS, urge all members of the Community to attend a meeting of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors to protest the lack of support and urge supervisors to overturn the decision of the Facility Services department. The next scheduled meeting of the BOS is on Wednesday the 10th of December at the Courthouse in Quincy.
