Beaver Creek eNews

July 10, 2017

Dear Neighbors

Lots of thunder and lightning last night and reports of .3 to .4 inches of rain received are coming in.  We're still under severe weather watch for this afternoon and evening and possibility of more monsoon the rest of the week.  The NWS memo is reprinted below.  It's past time to tie down those lawn chairs.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's July 4 Beaver Creek Celebration so much fun!  Local businesses sold duck race tickets and businesses and individuals throughout the Verde Valley donated the best prizes the race has ever had.  There were 26 wonderful parade entries and lots of patriotic music, pancakes, hot dogs, ice cream, games and visiting. Copper Canyon Fire & Medical personnel were present before, during and afterward making the events happen safely and helping with everything.  95 checks and gift certificates were mailed out last week.  The 3-page list of winners will be posted Tuesday morning at Kiwanis Clothes Closet and on the bulletin boards at Rimrock Resale and in Rollins Park.  The cash prizes offered by the Beaver Creek Kiwanis went to:  $500 Dorothy Firecloud, $200 Susan Herrera, $50 Shannon Webb, $50 Mary Lou De Fonzo, $50 Grace Lahr, and $50 to Ted Steffanek.  Camp Verde Veterinary and Majestic Flooring donated $100 cash each which went to Ruthann Kroese and the Olive Branch respectively.  Mr Rooter of Yavapai County donated $150 cash which was won by Karen Smith.  And so on......Please take a look at the lists and see how many folks that you know and be sure to thank the donors.

Summer also brings us roadwork and water main repairs in addition to increased vacation traffic.  I-17 was closed for hours on both Saturday and Sunday due to crashes and in one case a dumped gravel load which stopped north and southbound traffic near Kachina Village.  Checking out before traveling is a good idea.  Red rectangles on the map indicate traffic stoppage.  Or call 511 from anywhere in the state.   Locally Arizona Water is working on Montezuma Ave.  A temporary pipeline has been installed.  (The photo was taken during the installation.)  A 12-inch main will be installed in 3 to 6 weeks which will help prevent the big blowouts and flooding which have occurred 5 or 6 times.  This is also the main feed to the tank on the Mesa. 

The Montezuma Rimrock Fire Department name has been removed.  The station has been rebranded as #82 Copper Canyon Fire & Medical. This is the new sign.

Vacation Bible Schools are upcoming as well as more events at our local library. The Rimrock Farmers' Market gets better each week and tours of the Beaver Creek Rock School will continue all summer. Some of our clubs and organizations are continuing to meet this month as indicated below.

Bring on the thunder & clouds,

Sunshower Rose is the founder of the 'forever' art movement, Collaborative Art WORKS! She is drawn to working with other artists, including musicians, photographers, sculptors, - anyone creative, in essence. She even collaborates with her own works - on several levels.
Currently, she is discussing and demonstrating her techniques of combining one piece of art with another, creating an entirely 'new' piece of art. The method is completely digital.

Ms. Rose began residing in Sedona in 1987. Within a year, when the town became a city, she won the state wide contest for the official logo, which can be seen to this day on official City documents, maps, vehicles and related printed matter.

Her fine art, with an emphasis on the face and figure, especially dance has developed to such a degree - that now the art of Sunshower Rose has been incorporated within over 300 collaborative works, since August, 2016. These collaborative pieces may be viewed at Facebook: Sunshower Rose Art;  and Instagram: sunshowersedona.  She may be reached at: 928.550.1088.
