Hometown Happy Hour: Park It!

Join us for a non-alcoholic "mock-tail" and a light snack before listening to hometown historian Joan Fudala’s fun-filled discussion of Scottsdale’s Parks and Rec centers. Begun by the 1950s Civic Coordinating Council, Scottsdale's Parks and Recreation programs have entertained and kept fit multiple generations of residents and have enjoyed the generosity of civic groups that support our Scottsdale parks. Learn all about it during this photo-rich presentation. Meet up first in the Copper Gallery, starting at 5 p.m., for a beverage and a light snack before listening to the fascinating presentation in the auditorium at 5:30 p.m. Registration is encouraged but not required.
