On Oct. 29, Jill Hicks, community outreach specialist from Washington Elementary School District, organized an outstanding event with business leaders, superintendents of schools, educators and City Councilmen. The result was a sold out crowd to hear the guest speakers, mingle with dignitaries and network. 1300 copies of Arizona Recollections and Reflections were distributed to over 20 school districts that day including: Pendergast, Paradise Valley, Littleton, Madison, Tolleson, Deer Valley, Glendale Union High School District, and Phoenix Union High School District who picked them up by prearrangement.

The group saw a power point presentation about the book given by Historical League members Zona Lorig and Ruth McLeod. Linda Corderman, past president of the League and member of Washington Elementary Foundation partnered with us to assist in the donation.
Along with 1500 books previously donated to schools and libraries, the Historical League is almost sold out of copies. Only 100 remain for sale and gift ideas. Whew! At $40 each, donating 2800 books to schools and libraries is a huge contribution.
