Executive Director Update

October 1, 2020

As so often happens with time travelers, the last 3 months have felt like 3 weeks but also like 3 years. So much has happened to make the time fly, but more than should happen in 3 months! Here are the highlights:

  • Our board passed new bylaws creating a new Community Board which will act as an advisory board for the organization. You’ll have the honor of voting in new members later this month at the Annual Meeting!
  • We received a project grant from Arizona Humanities that will fund a number of activities this year to preserve and interpret the history of the African-American experience in Arizona in partnership with Emancipation Arts LLC. We’ll keep you informed of public programs as they are scheduled. Learn more about the grant here.
  • As I’m sure you’re already aware, the Rosson House has reopened for limited tours, and they are going great. We also have events and exhibits planned, so stay tuned to our website!

I have so many more things to share with you, so please join us on October 15th for our Annual Member Meeting. We’ll fill you in on more details, you’ll vote in new board members to help shape the future of Heritage Square, and we’ll have some fun, too!

Thank you for your support – see you soon!
