Park Equipment Donated by Club
March 23, 1948

Tables, stoves and picnic equipment, as well as decorative trees, will be donated to the city park by the Susanville Monticola Club for public use in the picnic area. The local civic group decided on the project at their meeting Thursday night.

Club members are planning a picnic with their husbands in the near future and at that time tables will be built and rocks brought in the camp stoves. A variety of trees will be planted by the club in the picnic area, consisting of six ash trees and one weeping birch.

The picnic grounds will be located at the bottom of the hill from Roop’s Fort and will cover an area about 130 by 80 feet.

Monticola Club’s President. Mrs. J. W. Crever, expected work on the tables will probably be planned in the next several weeks. In the initial movement about six tables and four stoves will be constructed.

The tables will be similar to they type used by the Forest Service in the National Park. The rock stoves will have metal tops similar to those used by the forestry but will have rock chimneys instead of the metal stove pipes.
