Bill Harrison – Valley of the Moon – One Man’s Quest for Kindness in Tucson

Lunch: half sandwich and soup. Then sit back for another great presentation by Bill. George Legler had a unique goal – create an enchanting park where every child could experience kindness. George grew up in a shockingly unkind world where vast numbers of Americans had died during World War I and from the 1918 influenza pandemic. In 1932, he welcomed children of all ages to enjoy the magic of Valley of the Moon. Not only was the park designed specifically for children, it would also serve as a safe haven for elves, fairies and other invisible folk. For nearly 90 years, Valley of the Moon in Tucson has delighted children and adults alike. This is the remarkable story of George Legler, his Spiritualist beliefs and those famous individuals who influenced him, including Walt Disney, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini, Lewis Carroll, Robert Lewis Stevenson and Edgar Allen Poe. An outstanding presentation you don’t want to miss! Presentation only tickets are available for purchase until noon October 18th
