2014 Grand Marshall Jim Ireland

Modoc Country resident Jim Ireland was chosen  to represent us as our 2014 Fandango Days Parade Grand Marshall.  The Alturas Chamber of Commerce selected Jim as "Ambassador" to our annual celebration because of his many years of relentless and tireless support for our Senior Citizens and Youth programs throughout the community.  Although he stood back in the "shadows", never expecting to be noticed or honored for his unforgettable efforts, our community never forgot Jim as he is always a recognizable figure throughout his daily endeavors.  He is always willing to help out our local businesses, whether it is mowing their lawns or even shoveling snow from their sidewalks.

Jim has lived in Alturas "pert-in-near all his life" and always without hesitation, he gives back to our community more than he receives. Jim recalls in a recent interview with Harry Boulade, "I remember the first time when Little League Coach Shinny Yamagata came by and asked me to help umpire Little League games, and that was in 1962".  Since then, Jim's expertise lofted him into bigger games such as "Babe Ruth" and the "All-star" games, as well as running the score clock for many years at our local High School football and basketball games.

When he is not calling "balls and strikes" Jim is busy driving our local Senior Citizens to and from their out-of-town doctors appointments.  He attributes this to his mother who instilled in him to "always take care of the elders and help them when you can". His favorite pastime is listening to the S.F. Giants on his portable radio.  Thank you Jim and congratulations for being selected as our 2014 Fandango Days Parade Grand Marshall!!
