WELSH LEAGUE OF ARIZONA
JUNE 2018 NEWSLETTER

NO MEETING IN JUNE – NEXT MEETING IN AUGUST!        

We will not meet this month since many are away on vacation.
Next month will be the Arizona Highland Celtic Festival in Flagstaff on July 21 and 22.  See their
web site for more details: www.nachs.info/

May Meeting Was Great
We enjoyed our pub meeting with Jeremy, Christina, and Tomos Wood from Patagonia in
Argentina.  They are a lovely family, and Jeremy is a wonderful historian and source of
knowledge about both the Welsh settlers of Patagonia and its present delights.

Update On Our Scholarship Exchange Student
Engineering student Daniel Mitchell has received the funds we sent him and has used them for
plane tickets.  He will start his studies at NAU in the fall.  Thanks to all who helped raised the
money for this good cause through participation in the “Child’s Christmas In Wales”
performance and through tickets sold and other donations made.

Language Classes
The next term of Welsh Language classes (online via Google Hangouts) will resume this coming
week.  Contact John Good at 602- 509-5223 for details.

     Lunch Meeting – Special Guests From Welsh Community in Patagonia, Argentina – Jeremy
and Cristina Wood and son Tomos

My name is Jeremy Wood. I live in Esquel, in Welsh Patagonia; I am on the committee of the
Welsh Association in Trevelin, a small Welsh town close to Esquel in the Andes mountains; I am
the main fundraiser for our new Welsh school in Trevelin and I am a writer and historian,
specialising in the history of the Welsh in Patagonia. I also have a tour company which arranges
tours of the whole of Patagonia for visitors from Wales.  We have never been to Arizona before
and would happily trade an informal chat about Welsh Patagonia with any of your members who
may be interested with a similarly informal chat about what we should do and see in the short
time we will be in your area.
Please Google “Jeremy Wood Esquel” to see some of the films I have made, research published
and so on!

WELSH LEAGUE OF ARIZONA
APRIL MEETING
SATURDAY, April 7, 2018
1-3 PM
IRISH CULTURAL CENTER
1106 NORTH CENTRAL AVE., PHOENIX
We Will Meet Downstairs In The Norton Room Of The McClelland Library Building
An elevator is available if you prefer it to the stairs.
Our Program – April Foolery!
Our theme this month was suggested by the “ever clever” Graham Tubbs.  Since we are so
close to April Fool’s Day why not look up a few facts about Wales and recite them to the group
either truthfully or falsely – be creative.  Then we all try to guess if it’s real or an April Fool! We
will learn something and, hopefully, remember the correct versions. We can also look for some
Welsh jokes to tell.

Maris Thomas will tell us about her recent trip to Wales after a stay in the Scandinavian countries.

Refreshments can be shared!

Language Classes
Welsh Language classes have resumed online via Google Hangouts (from the comfort of your
home – no traffic!) following the spring break.  Contact John Good at 602- 509-5223 for details.
