Our resident historian and author, Jim Williams, will have a book display and signing at the Tucson Festival of Books on Saturday, March 2 from 12 to  2 on the University of Arizona Campus.   Jim will be in the Independent Author section of the Festival.

Jim’s recent book, “Claiming the Desert, Settlers, Homesteaders and Ranchers in Oro Valley, Arizona 1865-1965″ is a wealth of information on local history and lore.  Jim is generously donating proceeds from the book to the Oro Valley Historical Society!  Thank you Jim!

On February 13, Paul Loomis and Teri Colmar attended the “Jim Click Millions for Tucson” kick-off event at Reid Park Zoo (beautifully decorated for the Year of the Pig).  Though OVHS didn’t win one of the $500 raffle prizes for attending, we did come back with 200 tickets to sell!  Tickets will go on sale at the OVHS tent beginning at the March 9 Second Saturdays at Steam Pump Ranch.  Tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100.  Tickets can also be purchased by contacting Teri Colmar: tcolmar@comcast.net.

Who couldn’t use a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit, two round-trip first class airline tickets ANYWHERE in the world, or $5000 in cash!  And of course, ALL the money from the ticket sales goes directly to OVHS!

Tickets will be available through the last week of November but don’t wait!

It was a full house at Pusch Ranch House on Saturday, February 9!  Many enjoyed the displays of the Tully-Ochoa Wagon Attack as well as learning other local history provided by our knowledgable  docents!  We encourage you to stop by on Saturday, March 9 to see a new display at the Historic Heart of Oro Valley, Steam Pump Ranch.  Interested in OVHS membership or volunteering?  Contact Carol Bull at carolpfc@icloud.com
