At 11:00 AM Connie Robinson, Chairperson of 48 Arizona Women Legacy Project, will speak to us about her group and its plans to renovate the Brown Auditorium at the Heritage Center.  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.

General Membership Meeting, Program, & Lunch

General Membership Business Meeting, Presentation, and Lunch will be held in person on November 1st at the Arizona Heritage Center. Wade Weber, Director of Education at Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, will talk to us about the museum's new exhibit, "Light and Legacy: The Art and Techniques of Edward S. Curtis." Curtis's photographs of thousands of Native Americans over several decades--including more than 80 different Native American peoples--became The North American Indian (1907-1930), an illustrated publication of photographs in 20 volumes. The project was supported by Theodore Roosevelt and partly funded by J. Pierpont Morgan. Wade will show us photos from the exhibit and talk about this influential project.
