Chamber mixer to feature talk on the Town of Scotia transition
Press release from the Rio Dell Scotia Chamber of Commerce:
Frank Shaw Bacik, president of the Town of Scotia, will speak on Tues., Oct. 27 in the next in a series of mixers offered by the Rio Dell Scotia Chamber of Commerce. The event is free and open to the public and will be held at the Winema Theater on Main Street in Scotia, with the doors opening at 5 p.m. and the program beginning at 5:30. There will be refreshments catered by CC Market in Rio Dell, and silent auction items including products from the Eel River Brewery and a dinner for two and night’s stay at the historic Scotia Inn, valued at over $150.
Bacik will address the progress made and steps yet to be taken as the former company town owned by The Pacific Lumber Company, later called Palco, moves to its new stage as a Community Services District with homes that are privately owned. At 6:30 p.m., the band Doug Fir and the 2 by 4s will begin its weekly practice at the Winema, and people are invited to stay and enjoy the music by this classic rock cover band of fathers and sons.
Already in the series, Ronan Collver, superintendent-principal of the Scotia Union School District, spoke about the status of reopening the Scotia pool and gym, which have been closed for several years during the Scotia transition and Matthew Wennerholm, vice president of Aqua Dam, spoke about that company’s work and applications in water storage and control that it offers around the world.
