The Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County is proud to announce the publication of a new book about the history of Yuba City to observe the centennial year of the city’s incorporation. Yuba City, Our Home Town
will be released on September 4, 2008 at a kickoff celebration at the Museum. This is the first history book of Yuba City to be published. The hardbound, coffee table quality book weaves the stories of Yuba City from a Native American village on the banks of the Feather River, through its settlement in July 1849, its incorporation as a city in 1908, up to the present. Historic photographs, vintage newspaper articles, and memories of its first citizens bring the stories alive. The book will sell for $29.95 plus sales tax.
The kickoff event on Thursday, September 4 will take place from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Museum. A Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting will celebrate the book’s debut. The first copy will be presented to the Centennial Mayor of Yuba City, Rory Ramirez. The authors, Julie Stark, Sharyl Simmons, David Rubiales and Carol Withington, will be available to sign books. All this activity is combined with an old-fashioned ice cream social to make a memorable celebration.
