700 people turned out to honor Rose as AZ Woman of the Year at the Biltmore on Thursday, April 14. She is highly respected and dearly loved by so many. Rose was made a Historymaker in 1999 and the Historical League has been a fan ever since, supporting her at this event with 3 tables. Her humor is outstanding and she continues to donate her time and talents to charitable organizations, now focusing on the homeless shelters, disabled and elderly. What a big heart to go with her big hairdo.
Christine Wilkinson, daughter of 1993 Historymaker Bill Kajikawa, was M.C. doing an outstanding job of organizing the conversation with Governors Jane Hull, Janet Napolitano and Jan Brewer who also attended. (Napolitano via satellite) Christine also allowed the Historical League to promote the Centennial book ARIZONA Recollections and Reflections and Tastes & Treasures cookbook by placing postcards in the welcome packets. We have already received online orders as a result.
