    On behalf of the Scottsdale Historical Society Board of Directors, I want to express our extreme gratitude to our community partners for making the recent Old-Fashioned Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser an amazing success! What an outstanding display of support and generosity from our community!  First and most importantly, we wish to thank the City Council for hosting this event that drew more than 150 early risers on Saturday, Dec 9th at the Little Red Schoolhouse courtyard.   Special thanks to Chefs Suzanne Klapp and Guy Phillips for declaring the need to help the Society to raise funds for the restoration project by coming up with the idea to host a fundraising event just like “old times”.  Very quickly and without hesitation, we are truly grateful that the entire city council jumped on board – not only to host but to do what they do best – by actually serving the community as they showed off their chef skills… every single pancake was made with love and diligence by our esteemed elected leaders!

    We owe a debt of gratitude to Sasha Weller and the Scottsdale Fire Fighters Association for producing and furnishing all the materials and logistics for this breakfast.   We hope to collaborate with these amazing partners again and turn this into an annual event!  We are also grateful for the generous support from Arizona Public Service, HonorHealth and Salt River Project – thank you for sponsoring this event and the overall restoration project.  You may visit  www.ScottsdaleHistory.org/photo-gallery to enjoy more photos from this event.

    There are many others that we wish to thank…. The Resource Development & Event Planning Committee, thank you for your commitment and hard work to produce this event for the community to show their support.  Many thanks also go to those that were able to attend the event and your donation to support the museum restoration.  We still have a long road to recovery as the Archives Committee continues to assess the damage and prepare for more secure storage alternatives.  Please visit www.ScottsdaleHistory.org/Donate if you wish to help support this effort.  Last but not least, thank you to the City of Scottsdale for working so diligently and expeditiously to remediate and restore the flood-damaged basement allowing us to reopen the Historical Museum earlier this month.  We are continually grateful for the support of all our partners who contribute to the love and passion to preserve and share Scottsdale’s important heritage… together we are all stewards of our history.
