Susanville is Prepared to Receive Journals Get-Acquainted Excursion
August 7, 1911

The business men of this place are enthusiastic for the Journal’s ‘get-acquainted’ excursion to this county, and arrangements will be made to entertain the Reno boosters.

While no details have been perfected as yet it has been suggested that the train be met at Hot Springs on the N. C. O. with carriages and autos and bring the entire party up the valley to Susanville and after some informal entertainment, return them to Doyle by the way of the South side of the valley.

Editor F. C. Sefton of the Lassen Mail said: “Of course Susanville will give the Reno business men a royal welcome. We are pleased that Reno is awakening to her advantage in this direction. We want to meet them and shake them by the hand and show them what we have done, and are willing to co-operate to make the excursion a success as far as Lassen County is concerned.”
