Sierra Vista Parks and Leisure Review:
A wonderfully pro~active team that conducts a wide variety of classes and events, of the many communities I have lived (big and small) this team sets the standard! Something for everyone!
Classes, summer camps, adult socials, family picnics…
In the spring and summer there is usually something going on every night! Besides video games you can also …. Don’t have kids but need someone to cut your lawn? Call the YC and ask about their ‘rent-a-kid’ program.
Hauser Museum Review:
Ethel H. Berger Center 417-6980
2950 E. Tacoma, Sierra Vista, AZ
Named for Henry F. Hauser who served as Mayor for Sierra Vista from 69 - 71 and made many contributions to the growth of the city. The museum tracks the history of human cultures in the area.
For the incredible amount of history of the area this museum was a bit disappointing (although by now it may have improved) - they could really benefit from some Federal or State grants (but only if you write your congressman!). Tombstone, the ancient Mammoth hunters (Clovis man), the Pima Indians (pre-Apache), the Apache and Comanche, The Spanish settlements and Conquistadors. Not to mention the Gold rush ghost towns, rail line (that was still intact until a couple of years ago and was sold off as scrap), and a rumor that there used to be a Steamboat running the San Pedro river. McDonald's invention of the Drive Thru - perhaps the McDonalds corperation would be interested in a grant?
A clean place and a great bunch of people that work in the area - perhaps your involvement could improve things?
