Camp Verde AZ (May 5, 2017) – Where were you when man landed on the moon? What was going on in Camp Verde at the time? Is it true that Camp Verde paved Main Street for the first time the same day that Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon? Join Camp Verde Historical Society members, Nancy Tackitt and Jan Klann Monday, May 8 at 5:30pm at Camp Verde Community Library for an informal discussion around highlights on NASA’s timeline as they relate to Camp Verde’s history.
Included in the Discover NASA: From Our Town to Outer Space exhibition is a timeline showing significant dates in NASA’s history. Thanks to Camp Verde’s Historical Society, we have put together a similar timeline showing what was happening in our town around those same dates. But, no timeline is complete without people who remember “those days” telling their stories. Anyone with memories of Camp Verde is welcome to come and share them with the rest of us.
Camp Verde Community Library is located at 130 Black Bridge Road, Camp Verde AZ. The Discover NASA exhibition is free and open to the public during library hours, MON 9:00a – 8:00p, TUE-WED 9:00a-5:30p, THU-FRI 9:00a-8:00p, SAT 9:00a – 5:30p.
