Congratulations to our Golden Girls....
The 20th Century Club of Harrison celebrated their 100th year anniversary in 2001 and celebrates their 100th year of being federated in 2002. They celebrated in the fall for a week with their community. To honor their 100 years of being federated these women decided to take care of the needs of their cemeteries. They hired a licensed Arborist to help them and will be working three days a week until all the work is done.
We hope your next 100 years will be great.

workshops, as well as the wonderful hospitality of the Arizona
clubs. (The men enjoyed their golf, too!)
