December issue of Cobblestones is in the mail

The December 2018 issue of the Colfax Cobblestones newsletter is in the mail. This issue contains the 1966 story about the Christmas tree that was cut on Grouse Ridge in Nevada County and shipped from Colfax to Washington, DC, to be the Nation’s Christmas Tree.

The December 2018 issue of the Colfax Cobblestones. 
From The Colfax Record, November 17, 1966: “Before the PG&E trucks lifted the Nation’s Christmas Tree off the flatbed truck, Colfax Chamber of Commerce members reeled out a sign and placed it on the flatbed for picture taking. The sign was made by the Art Department at Colfax High School. Despite the rain, a good crowd was on hand for the short send-off ceremony.”

If you are a member of the CAHS, you will receive your copy in the mail in a few days.

The December 2018 issue is also available to read online or download as a PDF file.
