Desert Foothills Theater needs you

Changing lives in the far north valley for over 36 years

If they can raise $15,000, they can get another $15,000 matched by some very generous DFT supporters.

So far they have raised $7,000. Can you help them make the next $3,000 by the end of March?

Join them Saturday, March 10 on a walking tour through the beautiful and unique collection of plants and art surrounding the famed Carefree Sundial.  Scott McMahon, Certified Arborist and Cactus Collection Manager at the Desert Botanical Garden, will be the guide.  The Carefree Desert Gardens offers intriguing plants and trees of dramatic form and unusual shapes—plants that are living works of art.  You may want to bring along your hat, sunscreen, a camera and your favorite walking shoes.

The program will begin at 9:30 a.m. and run approximately until noon, meeting at the Town Council Chambers located in the U.S. Post Office Building, 100 Easy Street, Carefree.  As their goal is to be self-supporting, a $5 (or more) donation is appreciated.  For information call 480-488-3686.
