The Little Colorado River Chapter is located in Springerville, Arizona. Formed in 2003, we are comprised of members from all parts of the Little Colorado River drainage area in Arizona. The chapter is not connected to any one archaeological site but seeks to preserve, protect and appreciate archaeology in general.
There will be no monthly meeting of the LCRC in March due to Archaeology Month. In lieu of an April meeting, the Chapter is planning a field trip to Zuni, NM. This field trip is open to members only. For further information, please contact the LCRC at 928-551-4119. Commitments are to be confirmed by February 28th for the April 7th field trip. Should be great!

Thanks to all you contributed and bought tickets for the LCRC Quilt Raffle, 2013. Billye Wilda, who made and donated the quilt to the LCRC, and Linda Schuster, who was in charge of ticket sales, made this raffle a great fund raiser for the LCRC. We raised over $1000 for the Chapter!
