The Sold Out party at Phoenix Convention Center enjoyed a wonderful evening. Beautiful backdrops, entertainment, speeches, dignitaries and everyone dressed in Arizona Black Tie (lots of turquoise jewelry, cowboy boots and hats). Each guest received First Day of Issue Arizona Forever Stamp designed by Historymaker Ed Mell, Gold Arizona Coins and a wonderful display of patriotism and pride in our state.
Historymakers Stevie and Karl Eller spent the last two years working on the Centennial which will continue throughout the year. They are greatly appreciated.
The Historical League had 5 tables filled with League members at the event. We were entertained by the Phoenix Symphony, Esteban, Marshall Tremble, Rex Allen Jr., Robin Sewell, Sandra Day O'Connor, Hugh Downs, Luis Gonzales, Dave Pratt, Hopi dancers and so much more. What a wonderful evening to honor Arizona's history while looking forward to the next 100 years.
