RE:	    Participation in the 1997 Archaeology Expo

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your recent efforts
in support of Arizona Archaeology Awareness Month (AAAM) and the
Archaeology Expo held in Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, AZ on March
7-8, 1997.  We appreciate the events that you hosted during the month and
the informative exhibit booths, tours, and demonstrations that you created
and staffed at the Archaeology Expo -- at the Expo alone, these activities
helped to educate the thousands of people who attended this event
(approximately 6,500 people over the two days!) on the importance and
sensitivity of Arizona's cultural resources.  

Your continued dedication to AAAM helped to make this year's celebration of
our state's heritage a success -- each year we continue to hear positive
comments on activities that you host across the state.  In addition, 1997
Archaeology Expo a huge success thanks to you all -- we are proud of these
accomplishments and commend all of you for your time, 
effort, and expense in helping to make a productive AAAM.

We look forward to working with you on next year's Archaeology Awareness
Month planning activities and the 1998 Expo.  Thanks again!

An Expo debriefing meeting will be held on May 8, 1997 at 10:00 a.m. in the
Arizona State Parks Meeting Room (1st floor - reception area), 1300 W.
Washington, Phoenix.  Please fill out the enclosed survey (even if you can
attend the debriefing) and send it to me by April 30, 1997 so that we can
include your comments and suggestions at that meeting.   Thanks!
