Here's what you need to remember from the week for Friday, March 12.
Helena Vrisimo, a local farmer whose family received a 20-acre lot from Annie Bidwell, turned 100-years-old. The immigrant from Portugal had her last harvest this past season and is handing the farm over to her last customer, Maisie Jane Hurtado.
On Thursday, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company launched their “Big Little Thing” keg 438 feet, breaking the Guinness World Record. The brewery used a 20-foot high trebuchet-style catapult to launch the keg. The brewery filled the kegs with water instead of sacrificing beer, thankfully.
Chick-fil-A opened its location in Redding on Thursday. The opening had people wait outside overnight to be one of the first customers in the new location. The restaurant was busy all day with Redding Police Department Traffic Unit directing traffic and encouraging people to use alternative entrances into the Mt. Shasta Mall.
Chico’s Cinemark Theatre has opened its doors for the first time in three months. Masks are required and hand sanitizer will be throughout the theater. The theater has a new buffer technology so when tickets are purchased, it will separate viewers so parties are spread out within the theatre. Private watch parties are also available for groups of up to 20 people.
