The Historical Society’s Annual Membership Meeting will be held on Saturday, January 23rd at 11:00 in the meeting room of the Susanville Christian Fellowship, 705 Hall Street. All members are strongly urged to attend and new members will be welcome as officers are chosen for the upcoming year and proposed changes to the bylaws are voted on.

Outgoing President Tony Jonas will be giving a presentation on the work done by volunteers on Roop’s Fort over the last year. The 160 year-old cabin was given extensive reinforcement and a new roof.

Grounds around the fort were also improved by the cadre of volunteers; an ancient power pole was removed, overhanging trees were trimmed for safety and local artist Ron McBride created a new sign for the west-facing side of the fort. The shake roof of the building should be completed soon.

The presentation will be followed by a potluck lunch.
