Come “Tee It Up” for the 24 Hour Help Hotline by quotes

Come “Tee It Up” for the 24 Hour Help HotlineOn Sunday April 29th, Community Information & Referral (CIR) will present its inaugural “Tee It Up” Golf Classic at the beautiful Scottsdale Silverado Golf Club, a fundraising event benefiting one of Arizona’s leading nonprofits who has served the community through their 24 Hour Help Hotline since 1964.    

What makes the CIR “Tee It Up” Golf Classic unique and sets us apart from other golf fundraisers is the event is designed to reward ALL participants, regardless of talent. A “shotgun” start at 7:30 a.m. and “best-ball” style of play sets the stage for a great day of fun.  A $150 Single player entry fee or $500 fee for Foursomes provides golf giveaways, a great day of golf in a beautiful setting followed by an awards ceremony and luncheon.  All proceeds from the event will benefit CIR’s 24 Hour Help Hotline that has provided
Arizona communities information and referral resources for health, human and emergency services for nearly 43 years.  In 2006 the CIR 24 Hour Help Hotline responded to 259,341 calls for help and anticipates exceeding this number for 2007.

The event has captured some major sponsors already by receiving support from General Dynamics, First National Bank of
Arizona, SRP and The Thunderbirds Charities who donated a 2008 FBR Open Package including entry for four guests for all seven days of the upcoming event.  Single players, foursomes and select corporate sponsorships are still available.

Photo exhibition details dam construction




TEMPE, Ariz. – “Those Dam Builders: A Photographic Essay of Central
Arizona Dam Construction” will be on display from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday
through Friday (except holidays) from Sept. 22 through March 16 at the
Tempe City Hall Gallery, 31 E. Fifth St.


Admission is free.


The exhibition highlights a collection of photographs donated to the
Tempe Historical Museum by Raymond Carrington in 1998. The photographs
document the construction of the dams built along the Salt and Verde
rivers between 1906 and 1946.


Coupled with these photographs are first-hand accounts of the dam
construction process and its workers, plus additional photographs from
the Salt River Project Archives and History Center. This exhibition
tells the story of who worked on the dams, where these laborers lived
and what it took to raise these dams.


Today, about 65 percent of the water distributed in the Salt River
Valley by Salt River Project comes from the reservoirs behind the
Roosevelt, Mormon Flat, Horse Mesa, Stewart Mountain, Bartlett and
Horseshoe dams. Surface water and groundwater travel through open canals
in the Phoenix metropolitan area to agricultural, urban and municipal


The population growth and economic success of our cities could not have
happened without these water reclamation projects.
