Six talented local youth musicians competed for top honors in the local Rotary Music Contest March 19th, with standout pianist Chalise Robbins winning at the local level and again at the Area 1 regionals. Robbins will now represent Area 1 at the District Convention in Reno, May 18th.

Chalise had some talented competition; Troy Ferreira, Juliette Singletary, Crandall Singletary, Autumn Robbins, Chalise Robbins and Tyler VanMeter all turned in terrific performances at the competition.

Susanville Park Plans Approved

April 12, 1947

City officials and members of Susanville’s public park committee this week approved the final blueprint plans for what probably will be known as Susanville Memorial Park.

Glenn Hall, city planning engineer from Sacramento, presented two plans to the group. One of these plans was accepted as fitting the area for the city’s new park after some revisions had been made and agreed upon. Mr. Hall promised to have the final plans completed and back to Susanville within three weeks.

When these plans are received, the committee will immediately start primary action upon the park site. Survey of the plans indicate the park will include tennis courts, children’s playground and wading pool, an area for teenage recreation, baseball park, handball courts, horseshoe courts, camp-fire circle, and a community or scout building as soon as feasible.
