A big thank-you to all who participated in the PCA's
Memorial Day Observance on Monday, May
It's an opportunity for PCA
volunteers, partnering groups and the public to
salute our nation's veterans and their families.
Well done, all!
The PCA website is
currently undergoing a major design change.
However, most of the original site is still on
line. To access it, please go here.
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.
If you love local history and
cemeteries, we'd love to have you as a PCA
member and volunteer!
