           Sign up now for the PCA's 4th 'Dining Among the Dead' gala and fundraiser, which will take place on the evening of Saturday, October 29th!  Guests are welcome to come in period attire. 

            The evening's entertainment will feature dancers from Ballet Folklorico de Tolleson and music by Arizona balladeer Dolan Ellis, followed by a catered supper from Macayo's.  Are you brave enough to take the after-dark 'Soul Stroll' and meet some of the cemeteries' most famous residents? 

            Order your advance tickets now--or register on line at Eventbrite.  For more information, download the flyer.

            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!
