Thank you notes

Writing a Thank you letter can be so important. Donna Esposito very generously sent a copy of Tastes & Treasures II to a friend who was interested in it after she saw the book on Facebook. Donna received this lovely Thank you letter. Looks like new recipes will be tried, a trip to Arizona will include visiting some of these historic venues and stories of Arizona will travel to the east coast.

Visiting the Sistine Chapel with the Historical League

We didn't need to travel to Italy to visit Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Historical League tours take you all over the world . . . at least to Rome, with tour chairs Mary McMahon and Julie Moore organizing them! 

This immersive art exhibition featured 10,000 square feet of the artist’s frescoes that adorn the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.  Phoenix hosted this event November - February 14, 2021 through Special Entertainment Events. The venue accommodated physical distancing guidelines provided by public health administrators. Guests wore masks at all times, and managed entry/exit (as well as timed-ticketing) limited the amount of visitors in the exhibit at one time.

Revered for its likeness and globally acclaimed, the exhibition has brought unique experiences to hundreds of thousands of visitors around the world, in locations such as New York City, Shanghai, Berlin, Bogota, Vienna and now Phoenix.

The exhibit had 34 panels of the frescoes produced in their near-original size. Among these reproductions are masterpieces like The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement. The exhibit brought visitors within
just a few feet of the frescoes, producing a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Orders for Tastes & Treasures II from Prescott Daily Courier article

The Prescott Daily Courier featured Tastes & Treasures II on it's front page, Saturday, February 13. What a tremendous response we had with over 53 orders (and counting) from and Amazon as well as wholesale accounts.

As Publicity Chair, Carolyn Hartman has reached out to newspapers all over the state. The interest from the smaller communities has been inspiring. Thank you Carolyn!

Judy Blackwell resides in Prescott so she alerted us to the feature front page. Note the story on snow removal is timely as the newspaper on Judy's front door was in snow on February 14 so the paper got a little wet!
