Wonderful Recognition Luncheon

Paradise Valley Country Club was the beautiful setting for the luncheon arranged by Delores Tomasek and Sharon Montegary. Guest speaker was Yuma's walking promotion, Tina Clark and she had so much to say about the area. Port Yuma was bustling in the 1800's with the Colorado River flowing into the Gila River, Yuma Territorial Prison, Riverboats coming from the Sea of Cortez . . . Her power point presentation showed us so much history! And so much happening in this century with agriculture. As Tina said, "Next time you are in Yuma, stop for more than gas."
Delores Tomasek welcomes the Historical League members.

Tina Clark presentation was "All Trails Lead to Yuma".

Nancy Evans quips with Tina Clark. Nancy brought the fabulous bromeliad centerpieces.
