Sacramento's Monthly Men's and Women's Swiss Heritage Club

Founding of the Sacramento Helvetia Verein on
March 1, 1892.

    Three able, strong and healthy men with
    names:  Johann Schärer from the  
    canton Aargau;  Albert Bürgi from the
    canton Aargau; Karl Schilter from the
    canton Schwyz. They took the courage to
    gather signatures to establish a Swiss
    Club in Sacramento.  It took much effort
    and honor to find 20-30 signatures,which
    agreed to found a Verein.

    We are thankful, that these three Swiss,
    accomplished the founding of a club.
    Thereafter every registered candidate,
    was notified to have a small meeting on
    March 13, 1892 at Ebner’s Hotel to
    discuss any further business.
    LADIES' SOCIETY 1922 - 2011

    1922, May 11th the Swiss Ladies' Society
    officially opened their first meeting, to
    cultivate friendship and sociability and to
    strengthen the appreciation of Swiss
    heritage in Sacramento.  When the men
    and women's clubs merged, the society
    dissolved on December 7, 2011 when the
    Ladies held their last meeting at the Turn
    Verein Hall and joined the men for the
    first official Men's AND Women's Helvetia
    Verein Meeting.
