In the recent article, “Touching the Past” in the Feb. 17 edition of The Rim Review, there were a couple of errors.
Please note that the Arizona Archaeological Society Rim Country Chapter does not own three-quarters or any of the Risser Ruin. It did not build and open the Museum of Rim Country Archaeology (MRCA). The Northern Gila County Historical Society gets the credit for purchasing Risser Ruin and opening the Museum of Rim Country Archaeology.
Also, the speaker at the Feb. 20 meeting, Miles Gilbert works with the Natural, not National Resources Conservation Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Our AAS Rim Country Chapter is definitely celebrating Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Month at 10 a.m., Saturday, March 27 at the Church of the Holy Nativity. We will feature a native foods potluck, a Katsina display, and Eddie Colyott, NPS Tonto National Monument as speaker on “After Mammoth and before corn.” The public is heartily welcome to attend this and all monthly meetings.
