The Sunnyslope Historical Society begins the new year with a look at the past, and a hand-on activity to improve the present.
First up is a free program on “Phoenix Past and Present,” 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12 at the Sunnyslope Historical Museum, 737 E. Hatcher Road. Paul Scharbach, Robert Melikian and John Jacquemart will narrate a photo slideshow through time. Experience how things have changed in Phoenix, as well as how they have remained the same. Lunch will be available for $2 current member and $5 non-members.
The Sunnyslope Historical Society partners with the city of Phoenix, the Hatcher Urban Businesses (HUB), area schools and businesses for a Neighborhood Clean-Up, 8-9:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26. Meeting in the historical society’s parking lot and enjoy a doughnut buffet and coffee before setting out along Hatcher Road, between Central Avenue and 12th Street. The city of Phoenix will provide roll-off dumpsters, trash bags, gloves, and “picking” sticks. Wear closed-toe shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.
