Cottonwood AZ (May 11, 2021) – The Verde Historical Society and Clemenceau Heritage Museum continue to receive gifts of support from its membership since beginning its corporate and institutional memberships. The Salt River Materials Group-Phoenix Cement Plant, in conjunction with Verde Valley Newspapers, provide display advertising assistance for the Society’s major fund-raising events, while the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce and the Old Town Association help to keep the museum and its activities in front of the tourism industry. The Wyoming Division Historical Society, a model railroad organization located in Cornville, AZ., provides and guides the ongoing maintenance of the Verde Valley Railroads diorama exhibit by keeping the trains running at the museum.
The Verde Canyon Railroad in Clarkdale, provided two adult passes for round-trip scenic excursions which will be the grand prize for a new membership drawing leading to available funds that will support the railroad exhibit. The Mingus Gem and Mineral Club provides the museum with the opportunity to host promotional programs and activities for kids at their gem and mineral shows, Clarkdale Rocks, which will commence again on September, 23-25, 2021 and in spring of 2022. The society and museum holds a close relationship with the Cottonwood/Oak Creek School District where the society and museum partners with the school district for space in the building and grounds location, maintenance as well as many other areas of operation.
