Sedona AZ (December 12, 2011) – The Sedona Heritage Museum has recently received sponsorships for two of their upcoming local Arizona Centennial celebration programs.
The Arizona Lottery just informed the Museum they would become a major sponsor for the Centennial Splatter Dab Breakfast scheduled for February 12, 2012. The breakfast will honor descendants of families who were living in Arizona in 1912, the year Arizona became a state. This event will be open to everyone interested in celebrating Arizona’s 100th birthday. This event has been designated an official Arizona Centennial event by the state committee.
Prior to this award, the City of Sedona and the Sedona Main Street Program became sponsors of an event scheduled during the Sedona St. Patrick’s parade next March. This event will honor a large gathering of the extended Jim Thompson family. The Thompson family was prevalent in local history in 1912 and Jim was Oak Creek Canyon’s first permanent Anglo settler and first Irishman. The City is also a sponsor of the Museum’ Centennial Radio Theater show scheduled for February 11 and 12.
