Copper Gallery, Auditorium

Join us for some non-alcoholic "Mock-tails" and a light snack before hearing about the 50 year history of the water department.

Local History Happy Hour: Water! 

This five-letter word is perhaps the most crucial element in Scottsdale's dramatic evolution from an arid desert to a farming/ranching settlement, to a desirable destination for tourism, business and families. Community Historian Joan Fudala will explore Scottsdale's water history, from the development and use of the canals to today's reclamation and conservation innovations which are emulated by cities around the world.

In celebration of the city of Scottsdale Water Department's 50th anniversary. 

Meet up first in the Copper Gallery, starting at 5 pm, for a beverage and a light snack before listening to the fascinating presentation in the auditorium at 5:30 pm.

Registration is encouraged, but not required.
