Lost Dutchman Days
Lost Dutchman days held its annual celebration on the weekend of Feb 27th in Apache Junction. Students from the Student Leadership Organization, the Massage Therapy department, Phi Theta Kappa and the DREAMers participated in the parade and passed out candy to children. The event has hosted a rodeo, a carnival, a barn dance, and other fun activities annually since 1965. Central Arizona College Students were excited to participate this year since they had not been involved in the last few years. The students had a wonderful time interacting with the crowd and recruiting potential members to their organizations.

On Saturday, March 18, from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. Maria Munoz and Maren Wilson will be volunteering and providing information about CAC classes and Phi Theta Kappa. AVC officers and SLO officers will be participating, and we hope Phi Theta Kappans from the other campuses will come join us in fellowship and service.
