West Sacramento BrownieTroop No 449 - circa 1963.

Eve Westvik sent this photo of her West Sacramento Brownie Troop #449 planting a tree at the new Activity Center that was being built in then to be named Sam Combs Park on Stone Boulevard in West Sacramento.

Eve said "I can't place the date, maybe 1963 or 1964. They aren't calling it Sam Combs park in the article, but I don't know if that's because they just left it out, or didn't have an official name for it yet, or it wasn't named that until after he died in 1966. I know he (Sam Coombs) was instrumental in making that land available for use as a park, and I know we were meeting in that building as of 1966 because I distinctly remember Mrs. Shumaker and another leader talking about Ronald Reagan running for governor in 1966." In this photo: Lisa Watson, Joan Russell, Cindy Vondette, Darlene Nichols, Barbara Allen, Phyllis Martin, Lynn Martin, Carol Benjamin, Cindy Mallen, Sharon Brown, Toni Flores, Karen Barr, Mrs. Erma Snyder, Eve Westvik, Miss Cherille Linch, Denise Granger, Mrs. Dolores Shumaker, Sharon Shumaker, Patty Russell, Robin Rugue and Mrs. Stella Nichols.
