Our Winter Fundraising Campaign kicks off this year with Giving Tuesday on November 28th. Giving Tuesday is a day of global giving, fueled by social media and collaboration. It is your opportunity to support organizations that matter to you. We have two days for getting deals—Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On Giving Tuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. Join the movement and give – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, gift, or the power of your voice in our local community. You can give to the Society by calling in—530-243-3720, going online to and clicking the Donate to SHS Today button, or on our online store


Let us know we matter to you on this Giving Tuesday.



The Covered Wagon Release Party

Dec 16 2017 at 01:30 pm
The 2018 edition of the Society's annual publication, The Covered Wagon, release is scheduled for December 16, 2017. The release party will feature a presentation from Anne Peterson. She will be interviewing Rudy Balma, the central figure of her article this year. They will be sharing all the interesting stories that did not make it into her article. This is a great opportunity for members to come pick their complimentary copy, for the public to purchase theirs, and for everyone to get that extra copy for a Christmas present.

Light refreshments will be served following the presentation.
