This year’s edition presents photos and descriptions of events from throughout Winslow’s history that occurred in the corresponding months. It features photos from the museum’s collections, or on loan from supporters, that have not been in a prior calendar. When an event has been featured in a prior calendar, this calendar presents updated information as well as a photo from a different perspective. Historical sources include Winslow Mail articles by Janice Henling and other reporters, archival material from OTM’s collections, and adapted text from OTM publications and exhibits.
OTM Director Ann-Mary Lutzick developed the calendar, Minuteman Press of Flagstaff did the printing, and photos are from the OTM Collections unless noted. The museum extends its gratitude to Rosemary Siow Natseway for loaning her image, and to Jim Buckley, Janice Henling, and Dan Lutzick for their invaluable feedback. The cover photo is from Sunday, March 28, 1937, when members of the Rainbow Girls assembled at La Posada for their first annual Easter Breakfast. They posed in their holiday bonnets before they went off to their various church services.
OTM’s annual historical calendar is a fundraiser for the museum thanks to its generous advertisers: Barton Architecture, Bojo’s Grill & Sports Club, Cox’s Automotive, Dominique’s On the Corner, Dyna Rock & Sand, Harley Hendricks Realty, Kenna Properties, La Posada Hotel, the Leavitt Group, Mojo Coffee Company, the Rotary Club of Winslow, Snowdrift Art Space, and the Winslow Chamber of Commerce.
