Centennial celebration planning is beginning for Marshall Monument

COLOMA – The monumental statue marking the discoverer of gold, James W. Marshall’s grave will be 100 years old in May of 1990. A steering committee of local community groups held its first meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 12, to plan a centennial celebration to be on Sunday, May 6, 1990. The event will include a rededication ceremony at the monument and a community picnic in the Main Picnic area of Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in Coloma. Details for both events will be the main topics addressed by the committee. Community organizations attending the first meeting included: Native Sons of the Golden West, International Order of Odd Fellows, El Dorado County Historical Society, Gold Discovery Park Association and California State Parks.

The next steering committee meeting will be at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, at the Gold Discovery Museum in Coloma. If your organization would like to help with the planning and production of this event, contact Matt Sugarman, park superintendent of Coloma‘s State Historical Park at 622–3470.

Mayor Proclaims Navy Day

Mayor H. B. Lews of Placerville today authorized a proclamation naming Wednesday, October 27th, as Navy Day in Placerville, and was joined by Commander Ted Atwood, officer-in-charge of the local NavAl Reserve unit, in asking for observance of the day.

No local program to mark the day is planned, but both the mayor and Mr. Atwood asked that Placerville home owners and businessmen display the national colors and otherwise honor the veterans and active fleet personnel in observance.

 

Firearms Safety Hints Are Told Placerville Lions

Take it from an expert on firearms, a gun is always loaded.

That was the gist of an interesting talk and demonstration on the proper use of firearms by Gerald (Jerry) Wallace, lawyer, outdoor sportsman and conductor of “The Marksman” column in the San Francisco Chronicle, at the Tuesday luncheon meeting of the Placerville Lions at the Blue Bell Coffee Shop.

C. H. Dutton, Superintendent of the Eureka Slate Quarry, made a hurried business visit to the city last Wednesday. A telephone line in connection with the elevated tramway across the river, which is nearly completed, is also in process of construction between Slatington and this city.

 

The Missionary Tea

The tea given by the Ladies’ Missionary Society of the Presbyterian Church on Tuesday afternoon in honor of Miss Mabel Triplett who is soon to enter the missionary field, was quite well attended and a pleasant affair. There were readings relating to missionaries and their work by Mesdames Swisler, Frey and Barker, with musical selections by Mrs. W. M. Brown, Mrs. Rantz and Miss Carpenter and an interesting address by Mrs. E. B. Hays, after which tea was served and dainty refreshments, each guest while seated at a table reading a quotation which had been placed at each plate, bearing upon the work that Miss Triplett has chosen to follow.
