May 4, 2020 Historical League meeting on Zoom

Zoom meetings are so helpful during COVID-19. The Arizona Heritage Center is closed so Historical League meetings are now online. Great to see 35 video and 6 non-video attending this Zoom meeting! We are all missing the human contact but still able to conduct League business. Thanks to President Susan Dale for organizing it all and conducting a successful meeting.

Kudos to O'Neil Printing

Kudos to a Great Company O'Neil Printing. We are proud to have worked with them on several projects, most recently Tastes & Treasures II storytelling cookbook. Anthony Narducci, President, said “O’Neil has been part of the fabric of Arizona for more than 100 years. We are always looking for ways to support organizations that are helping our neighbors, especially children and families who are most vulnerable,” said Narducci. “School food service programs continue to meet very practical hunger and nutrition needs of children in our communities and we wanted to do something to help out where we could.”
To assist with the marketing efforts of school meal programs, O’Neil is offering free breakfast and lunch banners in two unique designs for qualifying school districts, particularly those with a majority low-income population.

Easter Bunny cake

Baking for Easter? The kids can help you get creative with this design. Priscilla Cake from page 146 in Tastes & Treasures II: A Storytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona would be a good recipe to use for this.
