Arizona Women’s Heritage Trail
Come and hear about the Arizona Women’s Heritage Trail (AWHT) at 1 p.m., Tuesday, July 15 on the second floor of the Rim Country Museum in Green Valley Park. This is a free program.
The “Trail” was launched in the early fall of 2005 through a coalition of Arizona historical agencies and women’s organizations. A unique collaboration was formed with the Arizona State University Institute for Humanities Research of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The mission of the AWHT is to represent the diversity of Arizona women and their influence and impact on Arizona’s history.
The “Trail,” designated a legacy program by the Arizona State Centennial Commission, actively involves the community, universities and schools through its outreach while providing an opportunity to represent the state’s multicultural heritage.
Three Payson women are included in this project: Theresa Boardman, Polly Brown and Julia Randall.
The Wooden Nickel band is back for the third year to entertain and support the Pine-Strawberry Historical Society.
Come join the fun from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p .m., Saturday, July 20 at the Pine Cultural Hall for an Ice Cream Social and listen to the Wooden Nickel band play old country music. Admission for this event is $10 for adults, children $5, with children 5 years old and under free. Donations are always gladly appreciated.
Children are going to need their vaccines up to date in order to register for school, which starts July 29.
Arizona will no longer be providing vaccines for underinsured children. For those who have children that fall into this category, please contact your family doctor as soon as possible to get those school shots.
The Gila County Health Department can provide some of the shots your child may need, but you must bring your child’s immunization record and your insurance card when you visit the office at 107 W. Frontier. Call (928) 474-1210 for more information.
