Women’s Connection celebrates Arizona’s birthday at special guest event

Susan Reynhout, Publicity Chairman

A big birthday celebration will be featured at Women’s Connection Brunch on Thursday, February 14, at 9:00 a.m. in the Kingston Ballroom of the Oakwood Country Club. On this very day in 1912, Arizona became the 48th State of the United States. Bring that special guest to celebrate with you, male or female, and enjoy the full breakfast buffet.

There will be visits from a cast representing several Arizona notables from the past. Those may be explorers, professionals, actors and more. Music to fit the history of Arizona and songs made popular for Arizona will be part of the program. Sun Lakes resident Tom Jones will be the special soloist. Pre-brunch music will include Ferde Groff’s “Grand Canyon Suite” along with music from Western movies filmed in Arizona.

Presenting a talk titled “Risk Management” is Jim Firnstahl from Tucson AZ. In the international banking and capital markets business for 30 years, Jim holds a black belt in karate and is a student of international politics. He holds an MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management. Join this former international banker and current President of Christian Business Men Committee International on an overland trek from the desolate sands of the Middle East to the rugged peaks of Nepal.
