Guidon Books Presentation

Scottsdale Westerners Corral meets at Guidon Bookstore, thanks to owners Shelley and Gordon Dudley. History buffs enjoy getting together for fun, food, friendship and history at the Holidays.

The Butternut Squash Soup served was a hit. Try a similar recipe on page 106 in Tastes & Treasures cookbook. This version adds pumpkin for delicious flavor.

They were a great audience on Wed, Dec 14 and very interested in our Centennial book, Arizona Recollections and Reflections An Arizona Historymakers Centennial Commemoration.

Joan Robinson prepared the power point presentation while Zona Lorig and Ruth McLeod discussed the Historymakers, the book's background and many photos. We all enjoyed the baby pictures of Historymakers Eddie Basha, Erma Bombeck, John Driggs and so many more. No one guessed who those babies were. But Gordon Dudley knew some of the other photos. Of course, many of the audience recognized pictures of Old Main from University of AZ and ASU. . . Interesting to see how things have changed in 100 years.
