Have you ever stayed in a wolf’s lodge with all the fun under one roof? Well, I have—it was called the Great Wolf Lodge. I went just before New Year’s for two days, Dec. 28 and 29, 2019.

I recently toured the Valley Metro Mobility Center. Parked inside the building is a real bus along with a bus stop. The bus was driven in when the office was being built, and the center was built around it! The Valley Metro Mobility Center is dedicated to helping the elderly and those with impairments regain their independence—it helps them to ride Valley Metro transportation, such as buses and light rail. Between 430 and 530 people come to the Mobility Center each month, which means that many people are gaining the ability to use public transportation.
We attended a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Alice Chaiten Baker Center for Art Education at the Tucson Museum of Art (TMA) on Jan. 12. The TMA education center was recently renovated because of a $1.5 million donation by Alice and Paul Baker.
Mrs. Baker has been on the museum board of trustees for 32 years and participated in classes at TMA when she was in high school. She spoke about her passion for art and the reason that she and her husband support the Tucson Museum of Art.
Although not a national holiday, some states do observe Susan B. Anthony Day. Those states are California, Florida, New York, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Anthony’s state of birth, Massachusetts.
February 15 is a celebration of Susan B. Anthony’s birthday. Anthony was born in 1820 in Adams, MA. Her father was a farmer and later became a cotton mill manager. Her mother, Lucy, came from a family that fought in the American Revolution and served in the Massachusetts government. Anthony had seven brothers and seven sisters.
