WELSH LEAGUE OF ARIZONA
12 – 2 P.M.
1106 NORTH CENTRAL
of the Month
Hen Hanesion Arizona
Pronounced Hen Hah-nesion Arizona
“Old Stories of Arizona”
Welsh League's own Jude Johnson
will discuss the vital role Welsh immigrants played in Arizona's Statehood,
from mining to the Apache Wars to Mormon settlers. Her latest book is a
nonfiction publication called Cactus Cymry: Influential Welsh in the
Southern Arizona Territory,which wrth gwrs, she'll have on hand.
She'll also lead an Arizona Centennial Quiz, with a prize or two available. And
if you know of any Welsh immigrants in the Valley of the Sun--famous or
infamous--bring the info for Jude to research; maybe there could be a Volume
Two, or Cactus Cymry: Phoenix edition.
