The Bok Kai parade's rich history is believed to have started as far back as the 1850s. Always held on the weekend closest to the second day of the second month of the Lunar calendar it is the longest continually held parade in California. The parade honors Bok Eye, the Chinese Water God, who protects Marysville from flooding.

Frank Reilly, wife Lucille, and her mother Marie Sandberg, were La Porte to most people from the late 1930’s to the middle 1960’s.  In the 30’s they (along with Marie’s first husband Lucien Amy) extended their warm hospitality to all comers, first at the La Porte Hotel and later at Reilly’s Saloon and Café, originally Burrel-Buckley, barn lot circa 1860, Jumbo Merian’s Grocery & Gas Station, 1930-1945. Purchased by Frank C. Reilly, operator from 1945-1965.

 

Frank was born in Forbestown and before becoming an innkeeper he was the foreman of the Feather Fork Mine.  Frank, Lucille, and “Mom” were always ready to welcome you with hot food and drinks and good companionship. In 1973 Frank was the first Humbug of Frank C. Reilly 5978, E Clampus Vitus® and one of the very few that was still alive with a chapter carrying his name.

Today our chapter continues the honored tradition of E Clampus Vitus® dedicated to the study and preservation of the heritage of the American West, especially the history of the Mother Lode and gold mining regions of the area. The protection of widows, orhpans and contributing back to our community.

We contribute back to our community through events we sponsor through out the year such as the Olivehurst Fire Department softball game and tug of war. All proceeds are donated to the fire department. Hawaiian Luau. Proceeds go to different organizations every year such as The Depot (local soup kitchen) Marysville School District Lunch Program to name just a few.

Come on in and take a look around to see all of our events from the past or our calendar for up coming events. We also invite you to visit our history page for more information of The Ancient and Honorable E Clampus Vitus® and Western History. If you like antiques and artifacts visit the Frank C. Reilly Museum page.

We hope you enjoy your visit and come back often as we continually update our site.
