THS 2018 Fall Newsletter

Happy Fall! It’s that time of year when we begin to welcome back our “snowbird” friends, and gear up for a season of fun and friendship!
Strategic Plan:
Members of the board and resident researcher Mary Bingham met with our strategic plan faciitator, Deniss Eshleman on October 1st to assess our progress towards reaching the goals we set in our initial planning session last October. Developing a plan, and setting goals have helped us to be focused and motivated in our efforts to make The Tubac Historical  Society an organization of which we can all be proud. We are happy to report that we have met our goals and have set new ones for 2019. Dennis was very impressed with our progress. We would like to thank Dennis for his continued support and encouragement! We look forward to another productive year!

PP5 Update:
Much progress has been made on our “organizing” project! A few highlights below:
Volunteer Dimity has been working on scanning Elizabeth “Brownie” Brownell’s 3”x 5” index cards with the goal of saving and storing these important records on our computer system’s hard drive.  There are approximately 20,000 cards that Brownie used to write her book, “They Lived in Tubac”.  Scanning them will not only help us to protect the information but also make it easier to share on our PP5 website. This is a big project! Thank you, Dimity!


We are also pleased to announce that we have added pictures of our collection of Amado Pena posters to our PP5 catalog. Amado Pena designed many of the official posters for the Tubac Festival of the Arts over the years. Search “Pena” under “Keyword” search to view this wonderful collection. You can also visit the THS office to see the actual posters.




T.H.S. participated in the Tubac Presidio 4th of July Celebration. This is always a fun event and T.H.S. always hosts a popular booth! Thank you to all the volunteers who manned our booth!
