The Litchfield Park Historical Society, in partnership with Three Rivers Historical Society and the Church at Litchfield Park, will present a free in-person/Zoom lecture on Goodyear’s first 75 years at 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 23.
Attendees are invited to join presenter Mark Pelletier, a life-long student of history, as he discusses the changes Goodyear has undergone since its incorporation in 1946 during the two-hour event in Souers Hall at the Church of Litchfield Park, 300 N. Litchfield Road.
Advance registration is required to attend in person or via Zoom.
If it hadn’t been for the world wars of the previous century, it’s likely the city of Goodyear would not exist today, according to a release. Now celebrating its 75th anniversary, Goodyear has transformed from a rural town to one of the most populous cities in Arizona.
Mr. Pelletier became active with the Three Rivers Historical Society after moving to Goodyear in 2006 with his wife, Sue. Born the same year as the city, he developed an interest in the history of his new home, becoming acquainted with the people and places connected with the city’s early years and befriending those shaping its future.
