12/12/12 The Downieville Lions Club held their annual Christmas Party at Two Rivers Cafe in Downieville. The club decided to exchange white elephant gifts rather than buy gifts and donate the money instead to the Downieville Food Bank. The event was lots of good food, fun and laughter and good way to spend the holidays.
