Fall 2022 Luncheon 

Jessica Casas (granddaughter of Joe Chew), presented in depth information about the Chew Family and the Chinese cultural history of Red Bluff.

Chinatown occupied a stretch along Main Street to the end of Walnut Street, to the beginning of High Street (now Rio Street) and ending on Rio Street at Antelope Blvd.

The Ming Terrace Restaurant (now Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant), was where the luncheon/meeting was held. It was both the last Chinese residence and Chinese business to operate in the historic Chinatown closing in 1973.

70th Annual Meeting

The event was held at Granzella's Banquet Hall in Williams, CA.  Over 125 guests were treated to a program by Miriam Pawel. She spoke about her recent published book, The Browns of California.  Guests were also treated to some words by the Honorable Governor Jerry 70th who entertained us with stories of his great grandfather,  August Schuckman and his settling of the family ranch West of Williams in 1852.
