Forestry Class to Aid Stores
December 21st, 1950

Seventeen members of the Lassen Junior College vocational forestry class and their instructor Ralph Throop will play Santa Claus to Susanville to the extent of more than 100 Christmas trees.

The trees will be distributed to Main St merchants who will insert them in the flag pole holes at the curbing in front of their stores. If possible the trees will be lighted.

The Christmas Tree project is part of the Susanville coordinating council’s plan for a town Christmas festival. Other plans outlined by the council to be carried out by the various participating organizations include a large creche to erected at the head of Main St between the big fire trees which will be decorated with lights by the Legion Auxiliary.

December 17 at 5 pm is the time to set for a short outdoor program with Mayor Frank T Burnett lighting the trees and creche a local clergyman reading the Christmas story, various choirs giving a short program of Christmas carols with audience participating.

Arrangements for the program are being made by the Soroptimist Club, with Mrs. A G Breitweisrer acting as chairman.
