Helping Children Achieve Academic Success
September 20, 2005
We live in a time when success seems to be equated to being famous and making lots of money. A large portion of our current society glorifies athletic superstars, rock stars and singing divas, in spite of the fact that very few people can achieve such stardom and wealth. Unfortunately, the education level of a person does not seem to be held in high regard. The reality is that the level of education a person achieves is what is most likely to correlate with success in society. Fortunately, education in this country is available to everyone. It is never too late to learn and achieve success.

Sutter County Museum - Elks at Large Exhibit
August 10, 2005
A treasure trove of vintage photos has revealed a glimpse of our community over 75 years ago. A packet of negatives donated to the Museum, when printed, gave us a photo record of activities of the Marysville Elks Lodge in the 1920s and 1930s. The Elks were an active lodge with a huge membership, so a look into their world is a look into the social and fraternal life of our larger community.

Some of their activities took place in their building, which stood on D Street where the Tower Theatre is today. The first floor was rented to an undertaker, the second and third floors were used by the Elks for their meetings and events, and, on the very top, was a roof garden for alfresco events. This handsome building burned in 1926, when the Atkins Theater next door caught fire.

The Elks at Large exhibit is up at the Museum through Sunday, September 25.
