         The Pioneers’ Cemetery Association heartily thanks everyone who contributed to the success of its 31st annual Memorial Day observance on Monday, May 26th.   Approximately 250 guests and participants heard the keynote address delivered by Vivia Strang of the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office, with additional comments by David Swanson of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War.

        Michelle Ye Hee Lee’s article “Honoring the Fallen”, with photos by Patrick Breen, made the front page of the May 27th edition of the Arizona Republic newspaper.  Photos of this year’s Memorial Day events are available on line and on the PCA's Facebook page.

          The July 2014 newsletter is now on line.   In honor of Independence Day, editor Valleri Wilson has included a profile of Col. William Christy, Civil War veteran and one of Phoenix's pioneer settlers. To view slideshows of previous events, please visit the PCA vault.

        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!
