    BRAWLEY — A fraternal organization that exists primarily to celebrate California and to preserve its history saw fit on Saturday to honor the last surviving sugar plant in the state.

    In a special ceremony, the Native Sons of the Golden West dedicated a plaque commemorating Spreckels Sugar Co. and the Imperial Valley sugar beet industry. The event was attended by local and state leadership of NSGW, along with Spreckels company employees, dignitaries and special guests.
