Dumping at Sedona Recycles Site
near the Rimrock Post Office

Please Report Dumpers
The dumping at the Beaver Creek location for Sedona Recyles and other spots is negatively affecting the quality of our lives in the Beaver Creek area.  Please don’t do it and please report those that you see dumping by calling 567-7710 Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.  Dumping reduces the quality of our lives, is unsanitary,unsightly and may result in our losing our recycling location.
The Beaver Creek Baptist Church owns the property where Sedona Recycles locates their bins.  BCBC donates this use and expects all of us to keep that location clean.  This was a stipulation when the church approved the use of their property for the recycling bins. We need to respect that deal.
Yavapai County has a contract with Sedona Recycles to provide bins and pickup for Beaver Creek residents’ recycling needs. Sedona Recycles is paid to do this up to November.  It would be to our benefit if this contract is renewed.  We all need to help make this a possibility by the increased responsibility of us locals.
Yavapai County provides free dumping for county residents for two or three weeks in the March/April time frame each year.  The rest of the year, the Yavapai County waste transfer sites charge reasonable fees for dumping.  The Camp Verde transfer site is located about 7 miles east of I-17 on Hwy 260.  The Grey Wolf landfill is located on the way to Prescott and there are others.
Cleanup is everyone’s responsibility.  We need the Sedona Recycles bins.  That is our responsibility, too, to use them appropriately.

Dear Neighbors
Grand Marshal Verna Shafer & BC Kiwanis President Peter Jensen
What a wonderful 4th of July we had and now the monsoons are beginning!  We’re all sure hoping for some good rains and more water in the creek.  However, the ducks did make it through the channel that is still running.  Thank you to the businesses, organizations and individuals who donated more than $7000 worth of prizes this year.  The prize winners are being called today, so the prize list will be published during this week.  Thank you to all who celebrated in Rollins Park and made it the best get together to date.  Please don’t miss Bill Helm’s photo gallery “2018 Beaver Creek Independence Day Celebration”.  He captured the enjoyment of the event.  https://www.cvbugle.com/photos/galleries/2018/jul/05/2018-beaver-creek-independence-day-celeb/
And Sunshower Rose has posted a tribute to Friends of Beaver Creek Library at the celebration on youtube:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs2y_29zW2c&feature=youtu.be
Local availability of food is a theme of this week.  In addition to the second Saturday of themonth Free Food Distribution at Beaver Creek School, the Rimrock Farmers Market starts Wednesday evening at the Verde Valley Honey store on Beaver Creek Rd.  Candy Hammond, RRF Director, gave us a taste of what’s to come by providing 195 servings of watermelon at the Beaver Creek 4th of July Celebration and had that colorful and creative parade entry.
And continuing about local creativity and ingenuity, two more authors have books available on Amazon.  Both authors have been long time residents and volunteers in the community.  Carol Rotta now lives in a senior complex in Prescott.  Her book is about her early years homesteading in Alaska.  Carol Penfield’s new offering is a sequel entitled Lucina’s Destiny which follows Midwife of Normandy and continues the historical saga of the Dupres family in the 17th century.

Thanks to Yavapai County Roads

Please Be Ready for Monsoons & Prevent Roadside FiresThank you to Yavapai County Roads Division
On Thursday AM County Roads Manager Verl Cook was requested to provide sand and sandbags to the drop locations near the Rimrock Post Office and in the Sycamore Park parking lot.  Somehow he and his crew managed to do that the same day of the request in addition to handling the traffic diversions for three fires.The chains on a hay truck sparked three fires on Cornville Rd.  Verl Cook and his crew were able to keep one lane open for us at I-17 which was almost closed due to the adjacent fire.  We were very fortunate!


Please be careful not to create any sparks.   Although we need to be prepared for thunderstorms, great potential for fire still exits.



BC 4th of July a Red-White-and-Blue Winner

No Comments

jensen4th_3The annual parade and picnic for July 4th in Rollins Park went off like a firecracker,  with 350-400 attendees eating pancakes and sausage, hot dogs, and ice cream.  What an exuberant celebration!

Peter Jensen, President of sponsoring BC Kiwanis club,  couldn’t have been prouder when the parade marched by, featuring daughter Junior Grand Marshal Abigail Jensen representing both her family and the community.  Daily Bugle columnist Bill Helm, our personal favorite journalist, featured Abigail in his column July 3rd.

Grand Marshal Verna Shafer, the original designer of Sycamore Park, was also featured in a Bugle column citing her lifetime contributions to the community.   American Legion Post 93 Riders of Camp Verde started off the parade, and the audience sang, saluted, cried, and cheered when the national Anthem was played.

The worducksld-renowned duck race at Sycamore Park was, of course, the next highlight of the day. Prizes of all sorts were won by duck sponsors, and kids of all ages had a wonderful time.

Here is Ray of Ray’s Handyman, the fountain guy, in front of the newly renovated fountain, which is back to its bubby condition at the center of the park.ray2

Beaver Creek 4th of July Pancakes, Parade, Celebration & Duck Race, Sycamore Park to Rollins Park
On Wednesday, July 4, the Beaver Creek Parade will leave the Sycamore Park area in Lake Montezuma at 9:00 AM and travel south on Montezuma Avenue past the Village Square.  Montezuma Avenue in this section will be closed to other traffic from about 9 until 9:20 AM.  If you need to cross the bridge, please plan to do so before or after this time.
This year the Grand Marshal is Verna Shafer and Junior Marshal is Abigail Jensen.  Parade entrants (walkers, animals, vehicles, floats, etc) should sign up at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station or call 928-567-9401. (If you haven’t signed up already, please just show up at 8:30.) The festivities and pancake breakfast will be in Rollins Park at the Lake Montezuma Village Square. The BC Kiwanis Duck Race will be on Wet Beaver Creek by the bridge at Sycamore Park. For inquiries about display tables, entertainment and activities please call Carol Keeton, Kiwanis Past President, at 928-606-4050.  Scheduled events are over about 12:15 PM, so there is plenty of time afterward for family get-togethers.
For the past several weeks Beaver Creek merchants have been selling Duck Race tickets.  Thank you, thank you to the businesses that have been helping the Beaver Creek Kiwanis raise funds for community projects. This year more than $5000 in prizes have been donated by merchants and individuals to make this one of the best races ever.
