Scott Wood Retirement PartyA Happy Occasion and Good News:

On February 7, 2015, we joined National Forest Service personnel and many other professional or private friends/associates of Scott Wood at his retirement party in Mesa, Az.  Scott was the Tonto National Forest Archaeologist for 40 years and long time archaeologist working with Desert Foothill Chapter.  He has guided us, taught us, and participated with us on many adventures always giving willingly of his time.  The best news is Scott's new position creating "Friend's of the Tonto National Forest" 501-C3 and continuing his association with the AAS Desert Foothills Chapter means that we continue our long association with him.


A Happy Occasion, Congratulations to DFC's Nancy Zeno:

AAS President, Glenda Simmons, had an early announcement in July.   DFC's own Nancy Zeno is the 2018 Avocational Archaeologist of the year for 2018.  The formal presentation of this prestigious award is at the October State Meeting in Payson.


IMPORTANT NOTE:  Field trips, workshops, classes, and special extended activities are open to AAS members only.  This type of activity often requires a signed AAS-DFC Liability Release Form

ZOOM VIRTUAL MEETINGS

Zoom Virtual Meetings are intended to temporarily replace "face to face" meetings as we continue our national struggle against the corona virus situation.  Once we are able to conduct "face to face" activities safely again, our normal monthly meetings and other activities return.  Zoom Virtual Meetings represent a viable method to conduct a safe alternative at this time.  Once normal face to face activities return, we can also access the value of Zoom providing an additional venue for information distribution or other new concepts.  Note: Zoom Virtual Meeting days are the same day as our normal face to face meeting dates for continuity, BUT the start time may vary a little.  Thank you for your understanding during this unusual situation and be safe...
