The Sierra Nevada Unit - History Archives

It was twenty five years ago that the Sierra Nevada Unit was born by splitting the Nevada Unit at the southern edge of Tonopah. Several of the Nevada Unit members lived in the northern part of the state and decided that for all intents and purposes it was already two Units. At that time rallies were held one month in the north and the next month in the south and the northern members seldom went south while the south members seldom came north, even as far as Tonopah. An application for a new charter was made to the International office, and after a few months of planning, writing a constitution and bylaws, and selecting a charter set of officers we were granted a charter as the Sierra Nevada Unit. Paul Estis was the first President and scoured the area for charter members. Written by charter member, Frank Burnham. from the January 2000 SNU newsletter
