A couple of museum volunteers get into the spirit of 1912 while helping to decorate for the Radio Theater performances on Feb. 11 and 12.

Presidential campaign materials from 1912 will be the subject of several lectures during the year, are on display in the museum, and will help illustrate some of the centennial activities.

The Sedona Heritage Museum has planned a comprehensive schedule of local events celebrating Arizona's Centennial year. They are also proud to announce that several of those events have been designated "Official Arizona Centennial Events" by the State Committee.

A full week of events leading up to statehood day kicks off Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 9 a.m. with the Museum's regularly occurring Living History program. Arizona author and historian Jim Turner will present "Arizona Statehood, All the Bells & Whistles," a program co-sponsored by the Arizona Humanities Council. Learn and see historic images and cartoons about the road to statehood, some of the political factions applying pressure to our state constitution's content, and stories of celebration. There will be refreshments during this free program.

Next, the weekend offers almost continuous opportunities for celebration. On Saturday, Feb. 11, at 2 p.m. audiences can enjoy a Radio Theater style performance, entitled: "Arizona Constitutional Convention - You Are There." This original show shares pieces of the actual debates from the floor of Arizona's state constitutional convention of 1910.

There will be refreshments, souvenirs and fun. $7 for adults, $4 for children age 6-11. This performance is partially funded by a grant from the City of Sedona and has been designated an Official Event of the Arizona Centennial.

Feb. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon, the Museum will host an Arizona Centennial "Splatter Dab" Breakfast. Splatter Dabs are pancakes to all you greenhorns! Local pioneer families will be honored and attending descendants will be introduced, along with descendants of all families that were living in Arizona in 1912. Ken and Lyn Mikell will set the old-time mood with traditional music. Breakfast will be made by the team from the Sedona Community Center and cost $3.

That same day at 2 p.m., there will be an encore performance of the Museum's Radio Theater "Arizona Constitutional Convention - You Are There" show.

The week-long party concludes on Feb. 14 at 1:50 p.m. with an Arizona Centennial Community "Bell-Ringing" celebration at Wayside Chapel on State Route 89A in Uptown. The Museum is coordinating all churches, schools, and businesses that have bells on their buildings, to ring them for 60 full seconds at exactly 2:14 p.m. For citizens, there will be a brief program of dignitaries in front of Wayside Chapel with a gathering on the street. At exactly 2:14, Sedona and T.C. Schnebly's granddaughter, Pat Schnebly Ceballos, will help ring the bell in the Chapel's bell tower. Everyone attending is encouraged to bring a bell, download a bell 'app' to their cell phone, or purchase a commemorative bell that the Museum will have available before the event.

The Sedona Heritage Museum is at 735 Jordan Road in Uptown Sedona. More info: www.sedonamuseum.org, or (928) 282-7038.
