Mark Lamm receives donations
                from the Questers

            Thank you, Phoenix Firebird Chapter #0629!

            On 1 October 2015, the Phoenix Firebird Chapter of the Questers presented PCA President Mark Lamm with a check for $1000. Two Questers also made individual donations of $100 each. These very generous donations will allow the PCA and the City of Phoenix to purchase and install approximately 24 grave markers for pioneers buried in the Pioneer and Military Memorial Park who do not currently have any.

            The Questers' mission is to help preserve historic buildings, sites and landmarks and to restore them to their former glory by providing funds for period-appropriate antiques and other artifacts. The Questers also provide scholarships and assist with educational programs.

            The Phoenix Firebirds Chapter has submitted an application for a statewide grant of up to $2,000 that will, if funded, go towards the PMMP Grave Marker Preservation Project to help preserve and repair other grave markers at the PMMP.

            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.

         The September 2015 newsletter is now on line. To view slideshows of previous events, please visit the PCA vault.

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

        In keeping with its status as a small museum,  Smurthwaite House and the historic cemeteries at 1317 West Jefferson will be 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.

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