            The Pioneers' Cemetery Association, Inc., wishes to thank Ballet Folklorico de Tolleson and Arizona balladeer Dolan Ellis, who entertained more than 200 guests at the PCA's 4th 'Dining Among the Dead' gala on Saturday, October 29th!

            Kudos to PCA members Judy Smith and Kathy Laurier for organizing this very successful fundraiser, and muchas gracias to their 'cast of characters' and the staff of Macayo's, who catered the event.  Proceeds from ticket sales over and above expenses go to support the PCA's mission of preserving and protecting Arizona's historic cemeteries.

            The September 2016 newsletter is now on line. To view slideshows of previous events, please visit the PCA vault.

            You're invited to come downtown and tour the seven historic cemeteries that make up the Pioneer & Military Memorial Park, where many of Phoenix's founding fathers (and mothers) are buried.  See Smurthwaite House's new Victorian- and Edwardian-era furnishings and decorations, thanks to the tireless work of interior decorator and PCA member Judy Smith and her assistants.

        In keeping with its status as a small museum,  Smurthwaite House and the historic cemeteries at 1317 West Jefferson is open to visitors on Thursdays and for other events throughout the year.   Arrangements for private tours can also be made.  Please email the PCA well in advance of your visit to find out when our volunteer staff will be on the grounds.

         Your eligible AmazonSmile purchases help support the Pioneers' Cemetery Association.  Find out how you can help!

       If you love local history and cemeteries, we'd love to have you as a PCA member and volunteer!
