Welcome to Fourth of July Weekend in the Beaver Creek area.  Monsoon has started so there may be some thunderstorms today and Saturday.  But the Sunday and Monday forecasts are for sunny, clear and just below 100 degree weather, ideal for celebrations and BBQ!
A reminder from Battalion Chief Steve Sarkesian of Copper Canyon Fire & Medical that even though the monsoon season is upon us, please remember that vegetation is still dry.  He reports that on Wednesday afternoon the Montezuma Rimrock and Camp Verde Fire crews were dispatched to a brush fire in the area of Bice Rd.  Upon arrival the fire was located in the area of Beaver Creek.  The area grew to about ½ acre in size and was quickly extinguished by fire crews from Montezuma Rimrock.   Camp Verde and Verde Valley crews also assisted.  A total of 10 personnel were on scene.  The cause of the fire was undetermined after investigation.
The annual firework show begins at 9 PM on Sunday, July 3, from Cliff Castle Casino in Camp Verde and the Beaver Creek Fourth of July Parade and Celebration is in Lake Montezuma from 7 AM through Noon, Monday, July 4.  Today is the last day to buy 50/50 Raffle Tickets and the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station.  Duck Race tickets are still available throughout Rimrock, Lake Montezuma and McGuireville.  Look for the Kiwanis Duck Race signs.  This year there are super cash awards from the Beaver Creek Kiwanis and lots of fine prizes donated by businesses.
Congratulations to Pat and Karen Dufresne who are the Beaver Creek Parade Marshals for 2016.  And congratulations to Briana Buchert who is the 2016 Junior Parade Marshal. Please don’t miss cheering for the honorees, and your friends and neighbors on Monday morning.
