Description
The Carmichael Improvement Club formed in 1913 to "improve the general welfare and promote harmony and social unity" in the newly established Carmichael Colonies, an area bounded by Walnut Avenue and Lincoln Avenue north of the American River northeast of Sacramento. Over many decades, the club worked to improve roads, expand utilities and services, beautify public land and host social events in the Carmichael community. This collection of administrative records, meeting minutes, correspondence and newspaper clippings documents the administration and activities of the club from 1913-1963.
Background
The Carmichael Colony Improvement Club convened its first meeting on January 25, 1913. The club's purpose was to "improve the general welfare and promote harmony and social unity" in the Carmichael community. The newly settled Carmichael Colonies 1 and 2, which were approximately bounded by Walnut Avenue and Lincoln Avenue north of the American River northeast of Sacramento, had fewer than 50 households at the time. The members of the Improvement Club dedicated themselves to improving roads, expanding utilities and services, beautifying public land and hosting social events.
