Ken Scoville Lecture & Ice Cream Social Fundraiser:  "Summers in Tucson before refrigeration and programmable thermostats!"

How did anyone live without air conditioning or even swamp coolers, when this truly was the Old Pueblo? Local historian ken Scoville donates his time to explore early Tucson and the strategies to endure and evade the summer with ollas, adobe architecture, and nights sleeping under the stars.   Thanks to George Hand and his famous 1875 "Saloon Diary", there is first-hand (pun intended) commentary about this distinct way of life during summer in the desert. He even tells of his first taste of ice cream on a summer night!
