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.

|Our California Valley summers can be
brutal, but it is also the time to hit the
beach, vacation in Disneyland and take
a boat ride down the Sacramento
River. There's baseball games,
splashing in the pool and we can't
forget Switzerland's National Day
celebrated annually on August 1st.
Our club will be celebrating it the first
Wednesday of August on August 5th.
