Guest Speaker Connie Robinson at October League meeting

Connie Robinson, chairperson of 48 Arizona Women Legacy Project, was our guest speaker Oct. 4. She talked about her group and its plans to renovate the Brown Auditorium at the Heritage Center. She is seated next to Historical League Diane Smith who invited Connie to speak. In addition to honoring the achievements of Arizona women, one of the group's goals is to help "young women, girls and youth reach their best potential in communities statewide and across the nation." The group began as an Arizona Centennial project and produced a book about 48 intriguing Arizona women in 2012. Now, nearly 10 years later, 48 Arizona Women Legacy Project is searching for the next generation of women who have made significant contributions to Arizona.
