    HOW IT ALL BEGAN
         
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.

President's  Message
March

Spring is here - Weather invites us to
enjoy the outdoors.

Thank you Gabi, for arranging a day at
the zoo for our members, who enjoyed
the day very much.

Gabi is also arranging Brunch and Jass
(Swiss Cards) at Ettore's March 21st.  

April 10th and 11th there will be the
German Club's Bockbierfest at the Turn
Verein which should be fun.  It is open
to the public.

And our ANNUAL SPRING BBQ PICNIC is Sunday April 26th, held in Woodland
at Nelson Grove.  Always a great time!  BBQ Ribs and Chicken are on the
menu.  I'll be barbecuing and hope to see you there!

Every year I look forward to the events ahead.  I encourage you to make it
to at least one if not all four of our Annual Events which include: 1) Spring
BBQ Picnic, 2) Summer Swiss National Day Celebration, 3) Fall Metzgete, and
4) Winter Christmas Party.

Each year we add additional fun events scattered throughout the year.  You
can always count on Brunch and Jass at Ettore's every other month and this
year we have a couple of other enjoyable events scheduled.  Please check
out the Calendar Page for details and updates.















Our membership continues to grow and that is what our club needs to
survive. Please continue to encourage all those you know with roots in
Switzerland to become members.  There
are three membership categories
and
an application here on our website (Contact/Membership) that makes it
very easy to apply.

If you have any concerns, questions, recommendations - - - please don't
hesitate to contact me!  Visit "About Us" for contact information.

  Merci vilmal,
