Arizona Statehood came on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 1912 – coincidentally, exactly 50 years after the Confederates had first declared Arizona a territory. Movie cameras recorded President Taft signing the proclamation, the first time this technology had ever chronicled such an event.
This week, Arizona has been proudly celebrating its centennial birthday!
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
