June 2022 Historical League meeting

We end the year on a high note introducing the new Board with Advisor Susan Dale administering the oath of office. President Claire Nullmeyer turned over the gavel to incoming President Chris Hackett.

Tastes & Treasures I and II were the inspiration for the food served. Prescott's The Palace Bar Corn Chowder page 92-93 Volume II was popular. From Volume I, pages 96 and 97, Lon's Roasted Chicken and Strawberry Salad was given a new and inviting presentation. Almond Macaroons from page 97 were a hit for dessert. Thanks to Mary McMahon and Pat Christopherson for organizing the luncheon. Also Sergio and Randy for preparing the delicious meal.

Vacation was the theme for our June meeting. Thanks to Sandy Loeffler for her Summertime centerpieces celebrating beach, tall pines, and European travels.

NHD luncheon photos

Meeting "face to face" was a goal of the Historical League's luncheon for National History Day students. The students have been "online only" for too long. For many, this recognition and congratulation luncheon was the first time they were able to be with each other. It was enjoyed by 13 students, 4 teachers and 5 judges as well as parents and Historical League members.

Senator Mark Kelly and National History Day Executive Director Cathy Dorn gave speeches via videos.

Kudos to Anne Lupica for organizing this event.

Historymaker Bil Keane


 Honored as a Historymaker in 1992, Bil Keane's cartoons have timeless appeal. Glad to see his son Jeff continuing the legacy.

Historymaker Hall at Arizona Heritage Center in Papago Park is filled with photos and artifacts from all of the Historymakers.

Smiles abound as we gathered for the Recognition Luncheon. This annual event celebrates the many many hours of volunteering from Historical League members. Pictures tell the story. Congratulations to all those honored.

Thanks to the 2021-2022 Board for their wonderful guidance and we look forward to 2022-2023 Board.
