Norton & his development of the Sunny Slope Townsite; the significant roles of the Desert Mission, and later, John C.

Our first two meeting were very nice.  We had a large turnout , especially for the Paul and Tom Purtzer meeting.

Now we are looking forward to our November 5th, 2016 meeting.

Where:  At the museum  737 E. Hatcher Road, Phoenix, AZ 85020

When:  Saturday, November 5th at 10:00 am until noon.

Who:  The speaker is Mr. Bill Brake, past president of the Sheriff’s Mounted Posse of Maricopa County.  He will speak about this group and his role as a volunteer in the group.  The Posse  is now called “The Group” by loyal members.  This is a reflection of the good old west.
