Editorial Cartooning Virtual Event for Teens
Jan 22 @ 4:30 pm

Teen Librarians in Camp Verde and Cottonwood invite teens across the Verde Valley to express their voices and opinions through editorial cartoons! Jan Marc Quisumbing, cartoonist, illustrator, and Cottonwood Public Library Teen Librarian will teach a virtual cartooning workshop on Friday, January 22 from 3:00-4:30p. Fifteen drawing kits will be available at each library starting Tuesday, January 12, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Teens are encouraged to pick up a drawing kit, participate in the cartooning workshop, and return their drawings to their respective libraries for display.

Unlike the news, editorial cartoons are meant to be biased, poking fun at current events or get people talking. They give the cartoonist an opportunity to share opinions or make a point about topics that can sometimes be difficult to talk about. “The teens I know have strong opinions about everything going on in the world right now, but they don’t really have a voice,” said Camp Verde Teen Librarian, Zack Garcia. “We hope to give teens a chance to tell us what they think or feel about current events or anything really, through the medium of editorial cartooning.”

The workshop will be held via Zoom Friday, January 22 from 3:00-4:30pm.

Zoom ID: 8129360 6182

Passcode: 607319

For more information contact Teen Librarian, Zack Garcia at 928-554-8390 or Teen Librarian, Jan Marc Quisumbing at 928-340-2787.

This editorial cartooning workshop is part of the Smithsonian’s Voices and Votes: Democracy in America exhibit at Camp Verde Community Library January 16 – February 27, 2021. Voices and Votes: Democracy in America has been made possible at Camp Verde Community Library by AZ Humanities Council. Voices and Votes: Democracy in America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. It is based on an exhibition by the National Museum of American History. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.

Senettes Journey (Stem Cell Test Site) @ The Heights Church
Jan 23 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Senette is a Prescott native, and was diagnosed with T-cell
lymphoblastic lymphoma in September and has been having to stay at
MD Anderson Hospital in Gilbert, getting chemoterapy treatments
since she was diagnosed. The subtype of cancer she has is not
responding to the chemotherapy treatments, so the next step is a Stem Cell Transplant. Currently there is not a
match in the donor system for Senette, so we need everyones help to help find her a match. Senette is always
giving back to her community. She is a volunteer for the Firefighter Angel Foundation which is a non profit
organization that supports children in her community, and she is a local Nurse when she is not being a patient
herself. Senette has a strong faith and has had the most positive attitude through her treatments. She is the type
of person who would do anything for anyone. Now its time for Senettes community and friends to be there for
her time in need and help find her a Stem Cell match. If you can’t make the drive through test site, please
register for a kit online. If you’re not a match for Senette theres a chance you might be a match for someone
else fighting for their life.
Come and Join the BE THE MATCH REGISTRY and be someone’s
hero!!

The concert will include:

Igor Stravinsky – Octet for Wind Instruments

Jiří Jaroch – Children’s Suite for Nonet

Charles Gounod – Petite Symphony

Virtual Robert Burns Supper
Jan 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

January 24, 2021 – Virtual Robert Burns Supper- 2:00 pm MST.

Join us for a virtual celebration of the Scottish poet Robert Burns on Facebook. There will be toasts, piping, poetry and haggis! If you are local, Uptown Pub is selling 2-ounce drams to go! To get us all drinking the same richness of peat and brininess, we’ll be selling Ardbeg An Oa vials to-go (2 ounces: i.e.: a hefty dram) for $8 each. The Ardbeg distillery on Islay is considered one of the peatiest producers of Scotch. It’s also a loamy, earthy type of peat that makes me feels like I’m standing on the island itself (especially after a few). It’s the closest distilled [email protected] that we can get at this time to where Robert Burns was born in Alloway.

We’ll also have numerous other bottles of whiskies available to-go as well. In the past, we’ve had hundreds to choose from, but 2020 put a wee hurting on our overall inventory. We’ll do our best to find you something to get in the proper spirit of things.

You can watch the Robert Burns Supper here:

Sedona Historical Society Seeks Volunteers for Historic Cemetery Projects
Jan 24 @ 4:30 pm

The Sedona Historical Society is looking for volunteers to perform a variety of functions at their two historic cemeteries. Needs include volunteers to do mowing, weeding and other gardening tasks; also to act as liaison with families and vendors; and/or to participate on the coordinating committees to guide decisions and plans for improvements and maintenance.

            If someone is interested in working on any of these activities, they are asked to call 928-282-7038 and ask for Janeen, the Society President.

The Society owns the Sedona area’s two oldest cemeteries. The Schuerman Red Rock Cemetery on the Upper Red Rock Loop Road dates from 1893 when the pioneering Schuerman family buried their toddler daughter, Clara, after she succumbed to Cholera.  The other is the Cook Cedar Glade Cemetery, which saw its first interment in 1918 with a victim from the Spanish Flu epidemic. This cemetery also serves as the final resting place of our town’s namesake, Sedona Schnebly, and her husband T. Carl and their little daughter Pearl.

The Sedona Historical Society’s mission is to “research, preserve and teach the history of the greater Sedona area”, and it operates the Sedona Heritage Museum at 735 Jordan Road in Uptown Sedona.  For more information about the Society and their work, call 928-282-7038 or visit SedonaMuseum.org.
