Countdown to the Centennial

What a wonderful day, February 14, 2011 at the State Capital building. Crowds of people came to begin the Centennial celebration starting with a speech from Governor Jan Brewer.

The Historical League did very well with their merchandise. The crowd was full of people who appreciate our wonderful state and they wanted Centennial books, aprons and hats. Pictured are Pat Faur with Susan Dale working on the credit card machine. Zona Lorig, Ruth McLeod and Susan Dale enjoyed introducing the brand new leather-bound Centennial book, ARIZONA Recollections and Reflections, a collection of rare photographs, memories and biographies from notable Arizonans. These distinquished Historymakers have been honored by the Historical League from 1992-2008.
