Expo among events for PPEP anniversary

Tucson-based Portable Practical Educational Preparation, more commonly known as PPEP, will celebrate its 40th anniversary Friday.

The all-day event at the Tucson Convention Center, 260 S. Church Ave., begins at 8 a.m. with the International Microbusiness Expo.

The expo brings together microbusiness owners from the United States and Mexico to network and attend seminars on how to market their products across the border. A microbusiness is commonly defined as having fewer than 10 employees.

Other anniversary events include a silent auction, the naming of the PPEP man and woman of the year and a dinner with entertainment.

PPEP was begun in Nogales in 1967 to provide education to rural children and now offers numerous programs for rural and impoverished families in central and southern Arizona.

Admission at the event requires registration. To register, go to www.ppep.org or call 622-3353.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
