I Have a Name special event at Arizona Heritage Center

Susan Dale, President, Historical League, Inc. invites you to attend the upcoming September 18 Get Involved program at the Arizona Heritage Center. The information is below.

I attended an earlier program in July related to Jon Linton’s powerful and moving I Have A Name exhibit, and it changed my view and feelings about our homeless population in a very insightful way. I know you will appreciate this program as well.

The exhibit will close on October 5, so if you have not yet seen it, there are only a few weeks left to do so.

I hope to see many of you next Wednesday night!

"Winning Their Place" September Historical League Presentation

September Historical League meetings are always a great time to re-connect with members that have been gone over the summer. The September meeting this year was even better!  Zona Lorig and Norma Jean Coulter gave a FABULOUS talk as we re-connected with those women involved in the Woman's Suffrage Movement.
"Winning Their Place" told the story of Arizona's women and their roles. Well-researched and well-presented, this talk was well-received at the Arizona Heritage Center.

Sharron McKinney and Mary Parker display quilts from Women's Hall of Fame.

Chris Hackett begins her role as recording secretary

Susan Howard and Norma Jean Coulter accept credit card payments for upcoming events.
