The Past Presidents’ Council of the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce will honor four people and one not-for-profit organization at the 14th annual Scottsdale History Hall of Fame Dinner on May 16 at the Chaparral Suites Resort and Conference Center.
This year’s inductees are George Fretz, Scottsdale’s first planning director; Dan Harkins, second-generation theater-complex owner; Wesley Segner, co-founder of the Arizona Craftsmen Center, the Arizona Crafts Center on Fifth Avenue and the Segner Craft Village in the 1940s and 1950s; Douglas Sydnor, a second-generation local architect who has designed numerous landmark buildings throughout Scottsdale; and Scottsdale Leadership, which has helped launch or expand the community leadership careers of over 600 program graduates.
Over the past 13 years, the council has selected 93 past and present Scottsdale personalities and organizations to induct into the hall of fame. Inductees have contributed to the heritage of Scottsdale, dating back to its modernday founding in 1888 by Army chaplain Winfield Scott.
The dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. Reservations are required, and cost for the dinner and program is $60 per person with corporate and group tables available at $1,200. Proceeds benefit the Scottsdale Historical Museum.
