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.
