Christmas Past and Present        

        Pioneers' Cemetery Association members and guests are cordially invited to drop in and enjoy the spirit of the holiday season at the PCA Members' Christmas Social on Saturday, December 13th, from 10 AM to 2 PM at Smurthwaite House!    Attendees can decorate an ornament in Victorian style (one per family, please) to take home and hang on their own Christmas trees.

        See Smurthwaite House's beautiful Victorian- and Edwardian-era decorations and furnishings, thanks to the tireless work of interior decorator and PCA member Judy Smith and her assistants.

        Tour the seven historic cemeteries that make up the Pioneer & Military Memorial Park.  Just for the holidays, we've assembled a list of twelve Phoenix pioneers who departed this life during late December. 

        Support the work of the PCA by renewing your membership for 2015!  Simply print and bring (or mail) the attached renewal form and your check for $20 (individual membership).   Do we have your current email address?  You won't want to miss out on the activities being planned for the upcoming year! 

        Are you hosting friends and family for the holidays or for Superbowl weekend?  Looking for something to do in the downtown Phoenix area?  Put a tour of Smurthwaite House and the Pioneer & Military Memorial Park on your list.  Break for lunch next door at the Old Station!  We'll be staffed with volunteers and open from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, December 27th, and Saturday, January 31st.

         The December 2014 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!
