Dear Neighbors

Happy Fathers’ Day Weekend to fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, and friends! Hope that you are enjoying some quality family time.

Today, Friday, the “Caregivers Support Group” meets at the Adult Center. If you are interested and can’t make this one, call 928-567-4556 to find out when the next one is scheduled. The Farmers Market is being held in Rollins Park in the LM Village Square this afternoon and evening. Since the veggies and fruits are late this year, it is starting slowly. Two food trucks are expected today offering seasoned corn and ice cream. There is a small $5 vendors fee to help with expenses. Attendance is free.

On Saturday morning in the Adult Center, the BCCA Annual Mtg starts at 10 AM. Get updates on our local progress. Members, guests and visitors are invited.

The Kiwanis 4th of July Celebration is moving forward. The parade is even more enjoyable if you register to participate, which can be done at the fire station, Kiwanis Clothes Closet and the BC Adult Center. This year Supervisor James Gregory has been selected to be the Parade Grand Marshal.

Beaver Creek eNews
October 5, 2022
Dear Neighbors
Monday afternoon’s rain, hail, wind, wash overflows & a funnel cloud tore up the Beaver Creek area pretty good. Lee, Russell, Geronimo, School House and several other washes overflowed. Dry Beaver Creek looked like the Mississippi River. Mud and rocks are in ribbons across roads and many tree branches were on the ground. Lower McGuireville experienced a funnel cloud. Sincere sympathies to all those who spent yesterday squeegying water from homes and cleaning up yards and driveways. In a desert, an inch, inch & a half of hard rainfall on ridges in a short time can tear up the area quickly. Sometimes our price to pay for living in such a wonderful place.

Meanwhile, October activities continue. Today after school is your chance to meet the candidates for the school and fire boards. Also today, the Big Estate Sale starts in Camp Verde. And of course, this weekend is the Fort Verde Days we all look forward to.

On Saturday the 22nd, Friends of the Beaver Creek Library have brought back the Fun Walk/Run to benefit the Beaver Creek Library. This is followed by a chance to meet Patty and Doug Edgelow who have purchased the Ranch House & golf course property.

On Monday, October 31, Halloween Spooktacular will be in Rollins Park again. We do need volunteers, who much register prior to the event. Please call or text 928-301-2749 or reply to the eNews. Help is needed.

Hoping for blue skies and gentle rain the rest of the year. . . .the calendar crew

Golf Course Sale

Dear Neighbors

The news that we have all been expecting for many years has finally happened. The potential buyer for the golf course, after extensions of escrow, did close the purchase at the end of August which was the drop dead date for the transaction. So, congratulations to the new owner who we hope will become a respected member of our community. We’re sure that their representative will want to meet with the community soon. 

While we have a break in this year’s extended monsoon season, please note that as fall approaches the activity level increases here. Some of the major upcoming events to put in your calendars follow.

Beaver Creek News: July 4th, Food, Jobs & Montezuma Well

Beaver Creek eNews June 8, 2022
Grand Marshal Wyona Jaffe _ Driver Jim Andrus

Dear Neighbors
Welcome to our usual hot time in June! An excessive heat warning is posted by the National Weather Service from June 10 at 10 AM to June 11 at 8 PM. Our local Fire Marshal, Ken Krebbs, reminds us that we are still at Stage II Fire Restrictions. None the less, June is a very active time and includes getting ready for the annual 4th of July Celebration.
This year Kiwanians with the help of other organizations and individuals is bringing back the Pancake Breakfast as requested. BCCA has stepped in to help get the Duck Race up and floating again. And as always the Parade, BC Baptist Church hotdogs, Grace Lutheran lemonade and cookies, and Adult Center ice cream will be at Rollins Park.
Let’s make this the best parade ever for 2022. The registration forms are now at the Beaver Creek fire station, the Kiwanis Clothes Closet and the Beaver Creek Adult Center. It is even more fun to be in the parade than to watch it. 
The Beaver Creek Community Association is helping to bring back the Duck Race. The duck signs will go up on the 16th where merchants have the tickets for sale. Still $2 for one duck ticket or $5 for 3 entrants. The top cash prize this year is $300, $200 for 2nd place and $50 for 4th through 6th place swimmers. All proceeds from ticket sales will go toward the Bread of Life Café on Beaver Creek Rd.
This summer in addition to the Wednesday Food Shares at the BC Baptist Church, meals for children are available to be picked up or delivered on Wednesdays and Fridays from 12 to 5 PM. The Beaver Creek Library has a special Adult Armchair program on Fridays, and Saturday morning walks at Montezuma Well are back. These flyers are below. Beaver Creek School is asking us for help in filling positions. Please pass the word or consider getting involved yourself. 
This year the BCCA annual meeting is Saturday, June 25th. From 8:30 AM to 9 AM a continental breakfast is available. Beautiful piano music will accompany this. Most of the meeting will be hands on to prepare the ducks for the Duck Race. There will be a few brief reports. One board member position is available. Please let us know if you would like to run for election.

Create a great offer by adding words like “free” “personalized” “complimentary” or “customized.” A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like “for a limited time only” or “only 7 remaining!”
