We had a wonderful turnout of over 200 Sutters. The weekend started with a tour of the Sacramento Old Cemetary, we saw John
Sutter Jr.'s grave and went the Cemetary's Archives, which was fascinating. Saturday started with a trip to Sutter's Fort The reunion started at 6:00 pm and we were so excited to see all the family.
At 6:30 a cannon went off starting the festivities. After dinner we had many guest speakers all were so proud of the fort and were pleased to see so many Sutters.
We had an annoucement by Steve Beck that the portrait of John Sutter Jr. had been restored and that the families donations
made it possible. It was the first viewing since the restoration. Thank you family! On Sunday, family members went on the VIP Sacramento Capitol Tour.
It was fascinating, the tour guide was very imformative! Later family members went on the Scramento Train ride and then
the Train Museum tour.
