Improving our community by providing opportunities for our youth.


Welcome to the Sutter Youth Organization


If you have been in the Sutter area over the past few years, there is no doubt that you have noticed some major improvements to our community. The Sutter Youth Organization (SYO) has been working with outstanding community supporters to enhance our facilities, including a BEAUTIFUL new aquatic facility, new windows and doors at the hall, a recently repaired hall roof, and new landscaping in the park! These improvements were made possible by the hard work and commitment by members of our community. We are grateful for the Morehead Family, the Ziegenmeyer Family, the Sutter Lions Club, local contractors, and the many volunteers who are dedicated to seeing the SYO thrive.

Since 1957, the SYO has been operated by volunteer members that want to improve our community by providing opportunities for our youth. The SYO is composed of Ellwood Munger and Wayne Catlett Halls, Vera Carrol Park, Perry Field, and the Morehead Family Community Pool. These facilities are a huge benefit to this community. Whether you are looking for a shady place to picnic, rental facilities for a gathering, or a way to cool down in the summer, we’ve got you covered!


The SYO is excited to begin prepping for the 2014 swim season, with the goal of creating a Jr. Swim Team program. If you are interested in being involved in this up and coming endeavor, the SYO would love to hear from you.

In order to maintain these facilities and programs for our community, we need YOUR continued support. Please renew your membership, or consider becoming a SYO member today. This will help ensure the SYO will have a bright future. Our meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month, in Ellwood Munger Hall, at 7 pm. If you are interested in becoming involved with the SYO, this is a great place to start. We hope to see you there!

Non Profit Rates:

At the Sutter Youth Organization’s (SYO) general meeting held on January 21, 2014 the SYO board amended rental rates for youth non-profit organizations as defined below. These new rates only apply to the SYO building. Park and pool rental rates are not discounted for any non-profit organization or school. The board defines a youth non-profit organization as an organization with 501(c)3 tax status and whose sole purpose is to provide services for the youth in the town of Sutter and surrounding areas within the Sutter Union High School District. Schools are recognized as non-profit as well.

  1. Non-profit youth groups who are based in the town of Sutter or within the Sutter Union High School District, may elect to rent the SYO building at a reduced rental rate of $500.00 for the 1st event within an academic year, and $750 per event for any additional rentals. The academic school year is defined as June 1 – May 31.
  2. For fundraiser event schedule Monday – Thursday, the youth rate is $350.
  3. The SYO is free for meeting use to non-profit groups who are based in the town of Sutter or within the Sutter Union High School District Monday – Thursday. (Provided the meeting doesn’t conflict with SYO rentals.)

The SYO board welcomes any questions or concerns you may have regarding the above mentioned rate changes.
