Loved ones remembered at butterfly garden

A steady stream of people over the Memorial Day weekend walked through rows of heartfelt written messages to remember their loved ones at the Butterfly Garden of Remembrance, a fundraiser for Hospice of the Foothills in Nevada City.

Arby’s helps raise $$ for Big Brothers Big Sisters

The Arby’s on Freeman Lane in Grass Valley is participating in a nationwide fundraiser to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. Now through June 30, customers who visit the restaurant can donate $1 and a sign saying “Help us help kids” that will be pinned on the wall.

Last year, the campaign raised $1.6 million nationally. “This fundraiser is an important part of our agency’s funding,” BBBS of Nevada County Executive Director Dena Valin said.
