A special bridge in Sutter Creek - Dedicated to Anne
Sutter Creek has become more than a hometown to us. Our lives have been touched in a multitude of beautiful ways since moving here over 12 years ago. When our daughter, Anne, had cancer, the community gathered around us and helped us weather this terrible storm. A bridge that crosses the creek is dedicated to Anne.
