Circle of



Circles of connection.

Here is a collection of the Arizona Council of Grandmothers Newsletters. Since our first year, we have kept the circles of connections going round and round mainly because of those dear souls who endeavored to serve as the newsletter editors. A true labor of love.


These editors have helped "shape a network of women who laughed and played and hugged and prayed and learned to love each other as they shared their truth,...sending their thoughts in articles and poetry. Through the Newsletter and the Gatherings and the small Circles, we have stayed connected." (Kit Wilson, upon reflection of her tenure as editor)

Ruth Gardner, a founding Grandmother, served as the editor on the issues from November 1994 - November 1996.

Kit Wilson, also a founding Grandmother, and her son John, took over as editors from December 1996- December 2007.

From January 2008-2020, the online and hard copy Circle of Grandmother Newsletters were organized, designed, published, and mailed (or emailed) by Grandmothers Joanne Weiner and Margarita Acosta.
