Clarkdale AZ (August 24, 2017) – Free public tours of Clark Memorial Clubhouse occur the third Wednesday of each month starting September 20. Please meet your hosts at 9:45 am for a brief welcome at the Clarkdale Historical Society and Museum located at 900 First North in Clarkdale, followed by a short walk to the clubhouse. Built in 1927, at a cost of $100,000, the building today is much the same as it was 90 years ago thanks to several Clarkdale citizens, families, and friends who saw the need for restoration in the early 1980’s. They established The Clarkdale Clubhouse Restoration Commission and appointed Phyllis Bright as president with Dorothy Benatz, Vesta Northcross, Roberta Westcott, Peter J. Corbett, Ruth Marie Wicks, and Mercy Behlow as the guiding committee. The Town of Clarkdale recently was able to secure funding to redesign the facilities and handicapped accessibility entrance to the auditorium. This tour is handicapped accessible and will be offered on the following dates: Oct. 18, Nov. 15, Jan. 17, Feb. 21, March 21, April 18, and May 16. Please join us as we take a walk back in time.
