On Monday, January 16, 2017, the Library Friends of Payson are pleased to have Sandy Carson from the Northern Gila County Historical Society present a program on the Arizona Women’s Heritage Trail. This is a "virtual" project begun in 2005 to identify women who exemplify the diversity of women’s contributions to the history and growth of Arizona. Of the approximate one hundred women currently listed, three come from the Payson area: Polly Brown, Theresa Boardman and Julia Randall.
Ms. Carson is currently President and Archivist of the Historical Society. She was a history teacher, then a high school librarian in the Denver area for 28 years.
The Library Friends of Payson presentation for the community, which is held in the library meeting room, will start with a short business meeting at 10:00 a.m., and the program begins at 10:30 a.m. The public is invited to both the business meeting and the free one hour program. Our January program is on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; the library will be closed, but the meeting room will be open. High school and college students who are off for the day are especially encouraged to attend this informative meeting about the history of women in Arizona. If you have any questions, please call the library at 928-474-9260.
