The East Phoenix Valley is replete with LDS pioneer heritage. The names of pioneer families adorn our streets, buildings and schools. We often casually pass by a geographic location without considering the history of the family for which the location was named, or why the family name was used. The inquiring minds of Arizona Beehive readers want to know! In each issue we now present the history of one “famous” Mormon family name. We hope you enjoy learning about these families, and encourage you to reach out to The Arizona Beehive with ideas for families to feature in the series.
Did the summer heat depress not only your spirit, but your family activities? This fall is the perfect chance to bounce back and make lasting memories! The kids are back in school, and it’s a great time to plan active weekends. This is the time of year when gratitude for an Arizona lifestyle heals our hearts. After all, the sun is still shining, the heat is finally burning off as people head outdoors for hiking and playing. Wonderful deals abound to get families up and moving! Try each of these activities with your family and make this fall memorable.
