Preparations under way for Arizona centennial

Preparations are under way for Arizona’s centennial celebration.

The state Centennial Commission on June 16 unveiled its logo and Web site and also announced that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform centennial tribute concerts at US Airways Center in Phoenix on two days in February 2012.

Gov. Jan Brewer, co-chair of the commission with retired Supreme Court Chief Justice Bud Jones, said the Web site provides ways for Arizonans to learn about centennial planning and participate in activities.

The Web site’s address is www.arizona100.org.

The circular logo has “Arizona” arched around the top and the word “centennial” displayed beneath a sunburst. Also, the years 1912 and 2012 are positioned on each side.
