1. Sunset Parlor #26, Parlor Profile - By Paula Wong
One of the most meaningful projects undertaken by Sunset Parlor #26 was the Restoration Project of the Albert Maver Winn Monument, located in the Pioneer Section of the Old City Cemetery in Sacramento. Many of Sunset’s members restored the Monument which had been neglected over the years. New State of California Bronze Plaques were crafted by one of the members, and a newly designed Sunset Bronze Plaque and Bronze Bear were designed by another member and his wife to replace the original ones which were stolen. Also the inscription on the Monument was repainted by one of the members’ wife. Many of Sunset’s members built a new brick planter around the base of the Monument, and also did a complete cleaning of the Monument from top to bottom of the lofty obelisk. Sunset’s members also restored the Sunset Parlor Park Bench, rebuilt by one of the members. On July 10, 2004, Sunset Parlor #26 hosted the Founders Day Dinner attended by parlor members and guests statewide, and the
Day Re-dedication Ceremony of the Monument took place in the Pioneer Section of the Old City Cemetery, and a new Bronze Native Sons of the Golden West Plaque was unveiled by the presiding Grand Parlor President and his Grand Parlor Officers. Sunset’s members continue to maintain the monument on a regular basis by keeping the monument clean and planting new flowers throughout the year.
