M�� 5, 2010 D����� M�������� AZ Centennial Planning Meeting scheduled for Thurs. May 6, 4pm QUARTZSITE - There will be an open meeting for public input regarding Quartzsite plans for participation in the Arizona Centennial Celebration. The meeting will be held on Thurs- day, May 6th at 4pm at the Senior Center, 40 Moon Mt. Working in collaboration with the Arizona Historical Advisory Commis- sion and communities throughout the Grand Canyon State, this Centennial is an opportunity to create a greater awareness, among residents and visi- tors alike, of the vibrant culture, rich heritage and majestic beauty that de- fine the great state of Arizona. Community involvement is vital to planning events and activities that showcase our state’s development from Native American beginnings to 21st century innovation. Providing a sense of unity and pride among resi- dents, these events will accentuate the diverse nature of the state with respect to its people, entrepreneurial spirit, tourist destinations and edu- cational opportunities. The public is invited to hear about the plans already in motion, as well as bring new ideas to the table. The local Arizona Centennial Cel- ebration begins with a kickoff event planned to coincide with the Annual ATV Parade on February 12, 2011. The Centennial Committee has been busy creating fun ways to celebrate our state’s centennial through events planned for each month of the year, culminating on February 14, 2012. According to the Arizona Centen- nial Commission, “The Arizona Cen- tennial will inspire all Arizonans to appreciate our state’s rich past, cel- ebrate the present and, together, cre- ate a vibrant and sustainable future.” The Commission plans to create/le- verage opportunities for participation by as many Arizonans as possible in activities that serve to commemorate and promote learning about our his- tory, heritage and diverse culture. Please join fellow Quartzsite residents in helping to plan events celebrating the 100 years of Arizona! Bring your ideas to the meeting on Thursday, May 6th at 4pm at the Senior Center.
